Cheese Alert: Cheese Wheel Wedding Cakes are a Major Trend

This will certainly make your wedding reception the cheesiest thing ever…in a good way.


If you and your future spouse can’t get enough of cheese, this hot trend in wedding food and drink is bound to be right up your alley.

Whether the cake involves a buttery brie, a wonderful Wensleydale, a gorgeous gorgonzola or a pretty pecorino is up to the tastes of the bride and groom.

And if you think a cheese cake can’t be pretty, think again – check them all decked out in grapes and figs or berries and flowers.

To create a balanced effect, you want to make sure each wheel is at least an inch or two smaller in diameter than the one it is resting on.

The hardest cheese should go on the bottom, to create a solid base.

Work with a cheese vendor who will let you sample every type of cheese you are considering so you can make sure they look as good as they taste.

Jury’s out on whether a cheese wheel cake is any better for our waistlines than an ordinary cake.

But rest assured that they’ll look every bit as lovely as a traditional wedding cake, and taste as good too!
