Cheese wedding cakes have really taken off in the last few years, with many couples now preferring one instead of a traditional tiered iced fruit cake. Of course it’s perfectly feasible to have both, with the cheese cake providing a delicious course of the wedding breakfast.
Other couples prefer to serve the cheese wedding cake at the evening reception, where a real wow factor can be created. Apart from delighting guests with a visually stunning centrepiece cheese wedding cakes are very cost effective with prices from less than £2.00 per person.
Finding the right combination of cheeses for your special day is easy; we always recommend that clients visit the shop for a private tasting. In this way the best cheese can be selected to meet particular tastes and budget.
Here at Porter’s we always have at least 60 different cheeses in stock and can easily source a great number more. Welsh cheeses are a speciality with over 20 in stock at any time and our classic Welsh cake is always popular. Creating a stunning spectacle this cake comprises 7 tiers, starting with Gorwydd Caerffili, the famous Black Bomber, Perl Wen, Perl Las, Y Fenni, award winning Golden Cenarth and finally topped with a little Pant-ys-gawn goat’s cheese. This combination weighs about 12Kg and is ideal for parties of 120 – 140 guests. This is just one example but whichever cheese you select you can be assured it will be supplied in perfect condition.
Many of our clients prefer to dress their cake themselves, maybe with the florist’s assistance, with themed colour ways, seasonal fruits, flowers etc… or we can provide decoration too.
Of course, cheese cakes needn’t just be for weddings – they are just as delightful and spectacular at any special celebration, including birthdays, anniversaries and Christenings.
