Cheese Wedding Cakes
The Fine Cheese Co. has been creating beautiful Cheese Wedding Cakes for over 10 years. With our wealth of experience and knowledge, we can help couples choose the perfect Cheese Wedding cake for their requirements, tastes and budgets.
Increasingly couples are paying for their own weddings, and choosing cheese over fruit cake (so much nicer with wine at the evening party). In an historically female–dominated occasion, here at last is a part of the wedding planning that the bridegroom can literally get his teeth into.
From our very first ‘cake’, made for one of our own team‘s wedding more than 10 years ago, we have gone on to create a range of tiered cheese 'cakes', which are perfect for a wedding with a difference. Each ‘cake’ is made to the customer's budget and brief from our repertoire, and can be decorated by you, your florist or caterer to complement the bridal flowers, or dressed with whatever fruit is in season: figs and grapes in Spring, strawberries and cherries in Summer, nuts and plums in Autumn and Winter.
Our cheese ‘cakes’ also make a wonderful centrepiece for an anniversary, christening or special birthday.
You may order some of our ‘ cakes’ on line, but, if you have a special request or would like some advice, please just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 01225 448748.
The Fine Cheese Co. made its first cake from cheese in 2002, when one of our sales team decided that she would dispense with iced fruitcake and have something more suited to the wedding of a cheesemongeress.
Whether it was the first’ ‘cheese wedding cake’ we really don’t know, but certainly it was one of the first.
The concept of cakes made from cheese gradually spread by word of mouth, and then in 2003 we created our first range of cheese wedding cakes for sale on our website, and which were featured in Brides magazine.
Since then sales of cheese wedding cakes have grown steadily, becoming a serious alternative to a traditional cake.
Why are Cheese Wedding Cakes gaining popularity?
Increasingly couples are paying for their own weddings.
That means the bridge groom is as involved as the bride, and the part of the wedding that interests the bridegroom is the food - and men love cheese!
Today’s bride doesn’t want to dispense completely with tradition, but is more than happy to have her own twist on the familiar.
Today’s bridegroom plays an active role helping decide what the cake comprises and ensuring their favourite cheeses are included – often Cheddar, Stilton and Brie de Meaux.
The cheese often has an important role to fulfil that fruit cake or profiteroles cannot – it is the ideal food to feed the hungry guests at the evening party that follows most weddings.
Cheese is the perfect protein- rich snack food, that when partnered with bread or crackers and some good chutney or pickle will mop up the wine and the beer and keep energy levels up.
And what is more the bride and groom still get to cut the 'cake’
How we make Cheese Wedding Cakes
Each ‘cake’ is selected from our repertoire to match the customer's budget and brief, or bespoke by us.
Each cake must create the tiered effect of a conventional cake, so any cheese won’t do.
The open effect is achieved by inserting supports for each cheese layer.
The cheese wedding cake can then be decorated by the customer, florist or caterer to complement the bridal flowers, or dressed with whatever fruit is in season:
figs and grapes in Spring, strawberries and cherries in Summer, nuts and plums in Autumn and Winter.
