When considering whether a cheese cake is an appropriate substitute for a traditional wedding cake, several factors should be considered.


Is the couple looking for something unique?


Are they seeking to impress their guests with something special?


Or do they want something delicious that still fits their budget?


All of these questions should be answered before making a final decision.

With careful planning and consideration, ensure that your cheese cake is both appetising and visually appealing - creating an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.


How Much Cheese Wedding Cake Do I Need To Order Per Guest?

When creating a beautiful and appetising cheese wedding cake, one of the most important considerations is how much to order per guest. Our recommendation is to make cheese wedding cakes with 100-150g of cheese per head at an average cost of £2.00.


What Type of Cheese Should I Use For My Cake?

Do you want to add a special touch to your cheese wedding cake? If so, your cheese type is just as influential as its design. The right cheese can create a beautiful and appetising presentation that will leave your guests in awe.

When selecting cheeses, consider variety – try combining different textures and flavours. Choose a few creamy kinds of cheese, such as Brie or Camembert, some semi-hard cheeses like Gouda and some blue cheeses like Roquefort or Stilton. This combination will provide a distinctive flavour profile that everyone can enjoy. You may opt for Cheddar, Gruyere or Swiss cheese for a more traditional look.

MY TIP: To make sure all the flavours stand out, use different shapes and sizes of cheese wheels when arranging them on a cake. This will bring extra visual appeal to your presentation! And don't forget to include some fresh herbs for garnish – it adds a layer of flavour that won't go unnoticed!


Do I need to refrigerate the Cheese Wedding Cake before serving it?

When it comes to cheese wedding cakes, one of the big questions is whether they need to be refrigerated before serving. Well, it depends on what type of cheese you use. If you are using soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert, then it's a definite yes - these need to be kept cool and should not be left out for more than two hours. On the flip side, if you're using hard cheese, such as Cheddar, there is no need to refrigerate them beforehand.

However, regardless of the type of cheese used in your cake design, you should always store and serve the cake at room temperature. This will allow the flavours of each layer to come through and make for a much more delicious presentation. Plus, by keeping your cake out of the fridge until right before serving time, guests can enjoy its full aroma while they partake in this special occasion.


Our Conclusion

It's key to remember that timing is key when ordering a cheese wedding cake. You should order your cake at least three weeks before the wedding, so you have enough time for the cake to be ordered and you can plan the decorations.

Choosing a cheese wedding cake can be an intimidating task. Still, proper planning and preparation can be a beautiful and delicious addition to any special day. With some creative ideas and careful consideration of the type of cheese used, you can create a delicious presentation to impress your guests.

Finally, it is important to remember that even though cheese cakes don't require refrigeration before serving, storing them in a cool, dry place until ready to serve is always best.


With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to creating a stunning cheese wedding cake that will leave your guests with a lasting impression!
