CHEESE WEDDING CAKE

What's the ideal food to wow your guests at any celebration?

Cheese, of course!

In recent years, the CHEESE WEDDING CAKE has become a significant trend among couples seeking a unique twist on the traditional wedding cake. This savory alternative, also known as a wedding cheese cake or cheese tower cake, is a great option for those looking for originality and sophistication on their special day. The rise can be attributed to several factors, including the desire for something a little different, the growing appreciation of artisanal cheeses, and the flexibility it offers for guest’s dietery preferences.

A Unique and Memorable Choice

Couples increasingly choose a cheese tower wedding cake for its uniqueness and wow factor. In an era where personal expression is highly valued, a cheese wedding cake provides a standout element at the reception. These cakes typically feature tiers of different cheeses stacked to resemble a traditional wedding cake but with a visually striking and unexpected twist. The surprise of a cheese wedding cake can delight guests and serve as a conversation starter, making the event more memorable.

The Art of Cheese Selection

The rising popularity of artisanal cheeses has significantly contributed to the trend of cheese wedding cakes. With more people appreciating the complexity and variety of fine cheeses, a cheese celebration cake allows couples to showcase their favorite selections. From creamy Bries and tangy Cheddars to bold Blues and crumbly Stiltons, the choices are vast. Each type of cheese brings its own unique flavor profile and texture, creating a taste experience that appeals to gourmet enthusiasts.

Versatility and Pairing Options

A cheese wedding cake also offers versatility in catering options. Unlike traditional sweet wedding cakes, a cheese wedding cake can be enjoyed at various points during the celebration. It can be served as part of a sophisticated cheese and charcuterie board during cocktail hour, as an accompaniment to the main meal, or as a late-night snack. This flexibility ensures that a cheese wedding cake can cater to guests with diverse tastes and preferences.

Catering to Dietary Preferences

Accommodating dietary preferences and restrictions is crucial for modern weddings. A cheese wedding cake can be a thoughtful option for those who are gluten intolerant or prefer savory foods over sweets. By offering a cheese wedding cake, couples can ensure an enjoyable and inclusive experience for more guests. With the wide variety of cheeses available, it’s also possible to cater to different dietary needs, such as lactose-free or vegetarian options.

A Nod to Tradition and Heritage

For some couples, a cheese wedding cake represents a connection to their cultural heritage. In many European countries, cheese is central to culinary traditions, and incorporating a cheese wedding cake into the celebration can honor those roots. Whether it’s a nod to French, Italian, or British cheese-making traditions, a cheese wedding cake can add cultural significance to the event.

The trend reflects broader shifts in wedding culture towards personalization, culinary sophistication, and inclusivity. By choosing a cheese wedding cake, couples can create a unique and memorable experience that reflects their tastes and values. As more people explore fine cheeses and seek distinctive wedding elements, the cheese wedding cake is likely to remain a popular and cherished choice.

How To Order A Cheese Wedding Cake

Please get in touch with us either via the enquiry form opposite, email us directly at thecheeserydundee@gmail.com or contact us on Facebook messenger. 

Let us know the type of celebration you require the cheese tower for, roughly how many people you want to cater for and an idea on your favourites or any dietary requirements. 

From there, we arrange a fun tasting session, which usually takes place on Saturdays in our Exchange Street shop with Steve. 

Once the cheeses are chosen, we provide a sketch of the assembled cheese wedding cake to allow the wedding decorator or event or venue planner to put it together. 

The celebration cakes can be ordered up to a week before your event.
