Wedding Cake FAQ’s

Do you have any questions or queries about our Godminster Celebration Cake or our Wedding & Celebration Cheese Cake? We’ve answered a few of the most popular questions below but if you have any questions that you don’t see listed then please do email us and we’ll get back to you!

 

What is the size of your largest Cheese Wedding Cake?

All of the cheeses used in our Wedding & Celebration Cakes are artisan so the measurements may vary, however, these are our guidelines:

The height is 60cm and the base cheese (the Yarg) has a diameter of 25cm.

The layers are as follows (starting from the bottom) :

  • The Cornish Yarg – 25cm x 6cm
  • Colston Bassett – 22cm x 5cm
  • Westcountry Brie- 20cm x 8cm
  • Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar – 16cm x 10cm
  • Francis – 13cm x 6cm
  • White Nancy – 10cm x 4cm
  • Godminster Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar – 6cm x 4cm
  • Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar Heart – 8cm x 4cm

 

How much does the Wedding & Celebration Cheese Cake weigh?

The Wedding and Celebration Cake weighs approx. 10kg. The Godminster Celebration Cake weighs approx. 2.6kg. The Feast Wedding cake weighs approx. 5.5kg. The Banquest Wedding Cake weighs approx. 7kg. All of these weights are approximate as some cheeses may be heavier or lighter as they are artisanal products and may vary slightly.

 

Can I customise my wedding cheese cake?

All of our cheese cake towers have been carefully designed to be the complete package in both look and taste. Removing layers will often be to the detriment over the overall design so we encourage our customers to embrace the wide variety of British cheeses included – remember if there is a layer that you don’t like there could always be those within the party who love it! As such, we do not create custom cakes and cannot remove any of the layers.

 

Who delivers the wedding cheese cake?

We deliver through a third-party courier DPD, who deliver on a next-day service that means the cake is not left unrefrigerated for longer than 24 hours.

 

Do someone need to be in to sign for it?

Somebody must be available to sign for the cake. The only way the delivery can be left without a signature is if you (the recipient) select that option when contacted directly by DPD (via SMS or Email on day of delivery). This must be liaised between the customer and DPD directly.

 

What happens if I miss my delivery?

DPD will return your cake to your local depot. You will need to liaise with them directly to reschedule your delivery for the next working day. Please ensure you choose a delivery day that is at least three working days before your event.

 

Is the wedding cheese cake suitable for vegetarians?

All cheeses featured in our wedding cheese cakes are suitable for vegetarians.

 

Is the wedding cheese cake suitable for pregnant ladies?

Whilst the Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar is suitable for pregnant ladies we cannot advise that other cheeses will be. The White Nancy is made from unpasteurised milk.

 

What allergens are in the cheeses in my wedding cheese cake?

Milk is present in all cheeses throughout the cake. Please check the individual labels on each cheese for further allergens.

 

When is the best time to order my cheese wedding cake?

We recommend that you order your cake as soon as you are able as we require a minimum of three weeks notice.

 

When is the best time to have the cheese wedding cake delivered to us?

We recommend that you choose a delivery day that is at least three working days before your event. We are happy to discuss this with you. When we deliver your cake, the cheese will have a best-before date of at least 10-14 days.

 

How is the wedding cheese cake delivered?

We deliver our Wedding Cheese Cakes in insulated polystyrene boxes with each individual layer wrapped up in its own packaging. In summer and warmer weather we will include plenty of cool packs and ice bags to keep the cheeses chilled. We do not deliver either of our cakes pre-built but both are very simple to assemble. All you need to do is gently stack one on top of the other and your wedding cheese cake will come together in a matter of seconds. Please use wedding cake boards or dowels to ensure the softer cheese layers are protected.

 

Can I have it delivered to my venue?

We will deliver to UK mainland addresses – we can deliver to your venue if someone is present to sign for the cake. Please note: ensuring someone is available to sign for your cake at the venue is the customer’s responsibility. We cannot offer a refund if your cake is refused by the venue for any reason.

 

Does the wedding cheese cake come decorated as in the picture? Can you provide decorations?

The wedding cheese cakes pictured have been decorated using simple garden herbs and strips of raffia but do not come with these decorations. We do not provide any other decorations but we recommend that you use any off-cuts from your bouquet or florists arrangements to tie the cake nicely in with your floral theme. Pinterest is a great source for wedding cheese cake decoration ideas!

 

Please note: on rare occasions we may include a substitute product if there are unforeseen supply shortages.  We apologise should this happen.
