At Norbiton Fine Cheese Co we can put together a selection of cheeses to form a beautiful Wedding or celebration cake for your special day or event. We use only farmhouse and artisan cheese available from select small producers throughout the British Isles and Europe. Every one of our cheeses we consider to be the best of its kind and so too do many of our customers. We have a great deal of experience supplying Wedding Cheese Cakes and can guide you through what works and what doesn't, and help to make your day as special as possible...
Many people choose a Cheese Wedding Cake as an accompaniment to the traditional fruit Wedding Cake, or because some people simply do not like cakes made with marzipan, chocolate, icing, or many of the ingredients of a traditional cake. Other people choose a Wedding Cheese Cake just because it is slightly different, and some might say more interesting!
What Cheeses Are Suitable and How Much Are They?
You can make a Cheese Wedding Cake from many of the wonderful cheeses we stock, and every cake is made to each customer's requirements taking into account your taste in cheese, your budget and the number of guests. A couple of very popular choices for cakes are:
A bottom tier of Montgomery's Cheddar
, superb unpasteurised farmhouse cheddar, crumbly textured with a lovely grassy aroma, and a fruity mellow rich taste that lingers on the tongue, then a tier of Kirkhams Lancashire
fresh and crumbly with earthy and crème fraiche flavours, then a tier of Colston Bassett Stilton
, a deep and richly textured pasteurised cows milk blue cheese, it is a lovely creamy ivory colour with well-spread blue veining.Then a tier of Coulommier
which is a soft French cheese that sits somewhere between a Brie and Camembert, it has a more pronounced flavour and a very creamy texture. Then finally a beautiful little bright orange Langres
to sit on top. This cake can be made for 100 + guests and would cost £240.
A smaller cake could consist of a tier of Cornish Yarg
cheese, then a tier of Colston Bassett Stilton
and then a top tier of Coulommier
which is a soft French cheese, and this would cost about £130.00 serving about 50 people.
You can also add little Crottin de Chavignol goats cheeses to act as pillars between the tiers on any of our cakes, which makes it look even grander and is also a yummy edible addition...
These are just two of the cheese Wedding cakes we supply, but please do email or call us to discuss your requirements.
What Is The Best Way To Decorate The Cake?
They look beautiful when garnished with fresh fruit and flowers, and perhaps a ribbon wrapped around each cheese. Some people choose to have the cheese stacked on top of each other, or to use traditional Wedding Cake stands to seperate the layers. While you can get these from your local cake shop or specialist supplier, we can supply smaller goats cheeses to act as supports between the cheeses and to seperate the layers. These make a fun, and edible addition to the cake.
How Do You Deliver?
We ship the Cakes as individually wrapped tiers wrapped in double wax paper and housed in insulated boxes that maintain a cool temperature for many hours. To ensure as little time in transit as possible though, we use DHL 24hr delivery. There is a delivery charge of £8.95 within mainland UK excluding Highlands and Islands and we would suggest delivery a couple of days before the celebration. We can deliver to the venue or to your private address.
To discuss your requirements please call on 020 8605 2412, alternatively please send an email using the box below - calling is best though as we are always busy and get hundreds of emails a day!
"This is just a quick thankyou for getting an incredible cake of cheese to us for our wedding. It looked fantastic and tasted even better. It was a bit of a shame that the bride and I didn't get a chance to taste the delicious Ami du Chambertin at the top as it got nabbed by greedy guests before we had chance! The cake went down a storm though - especially with those who hadn't heard of the idea before."
"the cake arrived safely and it was wonderful. The caterers
City of London
decorated it perfectly with fruit and various varities of cherry tomatoes
and we served oatcakes, various fabulous chutneys and port with it.
Everyone said how good it was."
"Just a short note to thank you for the lovely cheeses, everyone loved them and John (groom) especially liked the Montgomery Cheddar."
"Everyone commented on what a great idea it was and there was enough left that we could give plenty away as gifts the day after the wedding which was really well received!
All the cheeses were gorgeous. Thanks once again and we'll recommend you to any friends that opt for a wedding cheese cake"
"thank you to you and your team for the fantastic cheese that you provided for our wedding last month. From the initial communication to the delivery, packaging and receipt it was a pleasure to deal with such a first class company.
Without exception, all our guests were full of praise for the cake, and we were absolutely delighted. The quality of the cheese was second to none, and we are still enjoying the cheddar left over!"
