It might come as a shock, but apparently not everyone has a sweet tooth. If you can’t stand fruit cake and the thought of frosting gives you toothache, then why not consider a cheese wedding cake instead?

Cheese wedding cakes are the perfect alternative for those who prefer savoury flavours, they look amazing at rustic weddings and can double up as your evening buffet too. Crackers at the ready, we’ve got a list of some amazing wedding cakes made from cheese to inspire you!

Tesco Cheese Cake

Tesco cheese wedding cake
Better get down to your local Tesco quick sharp, because they’re selling this incredible five-tier cheese celebration cake for just £30. Each tier of the cake is made from five different types of cheeses, so your fave is bound to be in there somewhere.

At the bottom sits Coastal cheese, then Red Leicester, Blue Stilton, Wensleydale with sweetened dried cranberries and sweetened dried blueberries, and topped off with St Endellion Blue full fat soft mould ripened cheese. Yum!

Fresh Fruit

This elegant wedding cheese cake is from Francesco and Paul’s real wedding – by pairing fresh figs, grapes and walnuts with the cheeses it makes it feel like a dessert whilst still being savoury.

The couple’s sophisticated choice of wedding cake perfectly matched their seriously stylish wedding!

A Centrepiece

If you want a classic wedding cake, but hate the idea of a cheese-less wedding, consider cheese centrepieces for your guests to nibble on.

They’ve definitely got to be the quirkiest wedding centrepieces we’ve seen yet and they’d be pretty easy to make yourself!

Add a Heart

If you heart cheese let everyone know by picking out a heart shaped cheese to top your cake! We love this heart shaped brie! The hessian wrap also adds a stylish rustic feel to the cake.

A Summery Feel

Cheese and strawberries? It might not be the first flavour combination you think of but you have to admit it looks pretty – the Churchill cheese cake is ideal for smaller wedding parties and the lighter colours make it super summery. We love the single flower topping off the cake.

Add Pork Pies

Ruth and Linden had an amazing idea when they decided to do away with cake stands and use mini pork pies to prop up the different cheeses. This cheese creation is a meal in itself.

Cupcake Style

Laura and Peter’s wedding cake included a top tier of cheese styled to look like a cupcake, complete with cherries on top. This is a great way to approach it if you still want a traditional feel.

Super Simple

This cheese stack is super simple – it only features three flavours but it looks amazing. It’s a great choice if you’re planning a smaller wedding or you want it in addition to your traditional wedding cake – there’s no such thing as too much cake.

If you’ve decided you want a cheese wedding cake, talk to your supplier to find out which cheeses will work best – you can make a custom stack of your favourites, or order a ready-made one with varieties to suit all palates.

Your supplier will also be able to advice what to serve your cheese wedding cake with – which fruits and what types of crackers and wine should you consider?
