Cheese wedding cakes – the most delicious way to say ‘will you brie mine?’

A cheese wedding cake tower is a stunning addition to your wedding, celebration, Christmas party, or special gathering of you and your partner’s friends and family. Impress your guests with a beautiful cheese wedding cake that will easily serve up to 120 guests! Move away from traditional cakes and treat your wedding guests (and yourself) to our unique wedding cheese tower.

This 8 tier cheese wedding cake is ideal for weddings, anniversaries, parties, or any other large get-together. It’s easy to put together, and then you’re free to leave it as it is or to decorate it as you please to complement your event, with fruit, ribbon, or anything else. We love to see pictures of how you’ve decorated these wedding cheese towers.

We can deliver a wedding cake made of cheese to any mainland UK address, at no additional cost and we will use a pre-10:30 am service to arrive 2 days before your event. Please contact us to discuss your delivery, or any other questions or special requirements you may have.

 

A Godminster Celebration & Wedding Cheese Tower includes:

  • 3kg x Cornish Yarg –  A light-textured, low-fat hand-made cheese wrapped in fresh nettles with a definite bite. This is the base layer of the celebration cheese cake and is 25cm in diameter.
  • 2kg x Colston Bassett – Regarded as one of the best traditionally made naturally crusted Stiltons. Mature, with good blueing and rich, deep, herbaceous flavours that linger on the palate.
  • 2 x 1kg x Brie – This is a delicious luxury hand-made brie. The taste is creamy and full-bodied with a wonderful character and complexity of flavour which is tangy and deliciously rich.
  • 2kg Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar – A cheese wedding cake wouldn’t be complete without our Vintage Organic Cheddar and we’re so proud of it! A rich, strong yet buttery cheese.
  • 750g x Francis – A beautiful wash rind pungent cheese with a sticky rind which is richly-flavoured and generally gorgeous.
  • 500g x White Nancy Goats Cheese– A stunning handmade cheese from Pete Humphries at White Lake Cheeses near Shepton Mallet. Using milk from his own herd of 600 goats. Please note: this cheese is made from unpasteurised milk.
  • 200g x Godminster Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar – Our award-winning Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar, naturally smoked with sustainable oak chippings for 8-10 hours, full of wonderful smoky flavour
  • 200g x Godminster Heart-Shaped Vintage Organic Cheddar –as delicious as its larger sibling and the perfect way to spread the love on your special day…

 

Please note: throughout the year it may be difficult to source particular cheeses that are being made by our small artisan cheesemaking friends. We will try wherever possible to make sure that a suitable replacement is featured of similar weight and value.

 

Multi-Award-Winning Cheeses

We make our Vintage Organic Cheddar used in our Godminster cheese cake to a traditional 90-year-old recipe and then mature it for up to 12 months. After that, we select the very best cheese to make into one of our award-winning truckles. It has a rich depth of flavour with a smooth texture. We’re delighted to say our Heart-Shaped Vintage Organic Cheddar was named at The Nation’s Favourite Organic Product in 2019/2020 at the BOOM Awards hosted by the Soil Association thanks to votes from the general public!

We make our Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar to the same recipe, using the same cheese as our Vintage Organic Cheddar before cold-smoking it over sustainably sourced oak chippings. It has won many awards, perhaps most notably Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2018 in the Best Smoked Cheese category.

 

Please Note:

  • On rare occasions, we may include a substitute product for the cheese wedding cake if there are unforeseen supply shortages.  We apologise should this happen.
  • Please place the order of your celebration cheese cake at least 2 weeks in advance of your delivery date to avoid disappointment.
  • The round elm board that this product is displayed upon is not included but is available to purchase separately to place your wedding cheese cake on.

How to make a cheese wedding cake

Our cheese wedding cake can make a beautiful and unique addition to a wedding celebration and the best part is we’ll source the best quality cheeses to save you all the hard work!

When it comes to making your cheese wedding cake, you should consider the style of the wedding to help determine the right cheese tower cake design and the number of guests you’ll be catering for. It’s also important to have a selection of cheese products that you know you’ll love – it’s all about the flavour after all!

 

How to decorate a cheese wedding cake

A cheese wedding cake can really add a special touch to a wedding – especially for cheese lovers! You can decorate your wedding cheese tower to tie in with your wedding’s theme (i.e. using raffia in a more simplistic and rustic setting or adding extravagant flowers to complement a lavish celebration). The design of the cheese tower cake and the types of decorations you use will depend on a few factors, such as the season the wedding is taking place in and what the colour scheme is. 

 

How much cheese per person at a wedding?

The last thing you want on your special day is to run out of delicious cheese for your guests so you’ll want to make sure that there’s plenty to go around. It’s usually recommended that there is approximately 80g-100g of cheese per person (as not everyone will want the same amount of cheese). Our wedding cake made of cheese here at Godminster can cater for as many as 120 guests.

 

How is a cheese wedding cake eaten?

You can cut and eat a cheese wedding cake in a similar fashion to more traditional wedding cakes as they’re also displayed in tiers. You can therefore eat cheese wedding cake in slices accompanied by complementary pairings such as wine, crackers and grapes. 

 

How long can you leave a cheese wedding cake out?

How long you can leave a cheese wedding cake out can vary depending on factors such as the temperature of the venue, however, you can usually leave a wedding cake made of cheese out for around four to five hours.

How to store me

We recommend refrigeration of all cheeses in the cheese tower cake (or storage in a cheese drawer or cheese pantry if you are lucky enough to have one!).   Remove the cheese from the fridge an hour before serving to allow it to warm to room temperature and bring out all the natural flavours of your cheese wedding cake.

NOTE: Orders for our celebration cheese cake products are expected to be per the above.  However, from time to time a similar product of similar value is substituted from those listed for the wedding cheese tower if there are unforeseen supply problems. We apologise for any inconvenience should this happen.
