Cheese Wedding Cakes

Why Cheese?

Why Cheese?

Generally more reasonably priced than a traditional cake.

Many people simply prefer to have a savoury end to their meal.

Why not have something memorable, visually impressive, special and different to remember your day by?

We can supply themed cakes such as locally produced, cheeses from a specific county, region or country, traditional cheeses, by milk type or all soft/hard.

Design Options

We can theoretically build a cheese cake 20 tiers high but generally most cakes are 4-6 tiers.

Our cakes are designed using farmhouse and artisan cheeses made the UK and Europe, selected by us for taste and quality.

We have 80 years of experience helping people to cater and choose cheeses for various parties and functions. We can guide you to select cheeses that will work both as an sunning centre piece for your wedding table and together on taste.

Everyone will, not only, remember your special day for the usual reasons but will remember your party from your cheese cake . A great talking point

We can supply any of the cheeses which can be purchased on the site for use in a cake as well as any we stock in our shop.
It is best due to the nature and importance of the purchase to call our cheese department on 01206 572200 and discuss your requirements.
Please give plenty of notice to avoid disappointment.



We only supply the cheese for your cake.

Most previous clients have asked their florist to decorate the cake as they would a traditional one.

We can supply pictures of cakes to give you inspiration if required.

or a search of google images using `cheese wedding cakes` brings up hundreds of examples.
