There is cheese, there is cake, there is cheesecake and nowadays there are also cheese wedding cakes. These cheese wedding cake is the ultimate stylish cheeseboard, made to resemble a multi-tiered wedding cake – and they’re growing ever more fashionable by the year! This is another option with a distinctly continental feel to it, for brides and grooms who want something that little bit different on their big day.
For the ultimate wedding breakfast you don’t have to choose between two options – have a traditional iced and decorated wedding cake for your ‘cutting of the cake’ photographs – and a cake of cheese too! In France the cheeseboard is an essential ‘end of the meal’ course as cheese is good for digestion and French cheese, in particular, is so good!
If you only want one wedding cake with a difference, go for the cheese cake alone – this is a budget-friendly option and a savoury course for your guests. We have never heard of a wedding where the cheese cake has not been a great success and gone down a storm.
A third alternative is a great idea for a gift… for the groom! Real brides have reported that their cheese-loving grooms absolutely thrilled getting their very own mini cheese cake, either as a surprise at the reception, or just before the wedding!
There are cheese companies who will design and build tailor-made cheese wedding cakes, but you can also easily build your own. Here is a the step-by-step guide to making your very own cheese wedding cake:
Remember - in the unlikely event that you have any cheese left over, it will keep for weeks in the fridge. Hard cheese like Cheddar can be grated and frozen for use in sauces, whilst 250 gram portions of Blue Stilton wrapped in foil can be frozen for up to 3 months. The trick then is to defrost the Stilton cheese slowly in the fridge overnight. The cheese wedding cake then becomes a zero waste option!
Perfect for rustic, country style weddings and a gorgeous addition to a stylish urban city wedding. Not only is the cheese wedding cake a fashionable trend, it’s also a healthy and delicious alternative to the sweet cake. And if that’s not a sexy enough reason to choose cheese, they look really cool too!
