Say Cheese to your wedding cake

If you’re cheesed off with traditional sweet wedding cakes, why not enjoy a savoury slice instead?

If purple is the new black, could cheese be the new chocolate? It certainly looks like it could when it comes to wedding cakes as couples with less of a sweet tooth are increasingly going crackers over cheese.

One or two culinary pioneers ventured into the realm of cheese wedding cakes as early as 2004, but it wasn’t until 2006 that the trend really began to emerge. Now, just five years later, there are more than 20 companies churning out cheese wedding cakes around the country, and all are reporting steady or increased sales.

As with more traditional wedding cakes, cheesy versions come in a wide variety of colours (not just white, orange and mouldy). There are numerous shade combinations to choose from and a wealth of decoration options, including fruit, flowers, feathers and ribbons, to ensure you have an individually customised cake. And, as an added bonus, you can also regionalise your bespoke cake with layers of cheese from the bride and groom’s home counties.
