Top Tips for Cheese Wedding Cakes
- At least three layers of cheese will be needed for it to look like a traditional tiered wedding cake.
- The bottom later will need to be some sort of waxed hard cheese as it needs to be strong enough to support the weight of the upper layers.
- Make sure you have at least a hard cheese, a soft cheese and a blue cheese so you have a balanced cheeseboard.
- Serve your cheese at room temperature as it tastes better this way.
- Make sure you’ve pre-tasted all the cheeses in your cake as you’ll want your guests to be amazed by the flavours.
