Wedding Trend: Wedding Cheese Cakes

Wedding cheese cakes have been popping up in our real weddings and Pinterest feed more and more as couples forgo the traditional sweet wedding cake for some tasty chunks of Brie, Camembert and smoked Cheddars. It goes without saying a cheese cake isn’t for everyone, but if you’d take savoury over sweet any day and aren’t fussed by a sugar laden creation, this could just be the alternative you’re after. Cheese boards are the perfect way to end a meal so why not stack an assortment of your favourite cheeses in tiers instead and serve as an unusual and alternative wedding cake?! You get your cake cutting moment and you get a delicious savoury feast to finish off your meal as well. Serve it up with some crackers and chutneys as dessert, or later on as a mid-evening snack.

When it comes to choosing what makes your cheese cake creation, it’s best to have a chat with a cheesemonger as you’ll want a nice mix of cheeses as you would with a regular cheese board so a hard, soft and blue cheese with a mix of flavours and textures. When it comes to decorating your cheese cake, grapes, figs, berries, wildflowers or natural foliage and pretty Hessian ribbons will give you that gorgeous rustic feel while an earthy wooden stand or tree slice is the perfect pedestal for your cheese wheels. Check out these 12 beautiful creations below for more inspiration…
