More and more people are choosing wedding ‘cheese cakes’ as a delicious, fashionable and affordable alternative to the traditional wedding cake. At The Cambridge Cheese Company, we provide a bespoke service, to ensure you get exactly what you want for your special day! Below are a few examples of tried and tested cakes, to point you in the right direction. If you would like a more bespoke service we would be more than happy to assist. Please feel free to contact us by email, telephone, or ideally by popping into the shop for a tasting! Please note, we only supply the cheese itself and don’t provide any decoration, but we’ve found that the cheese looks magnificent enough as it is or with some simple fruit or flowers.
SMALL CHEESECAKE WITH HEART
A perfect cake for a small gathering, will happily serve 75 guests. The bottom layer is a farmhouse Red Leicester, made the way it should be with a lovely nutty flavour. The middle is Cornish Yarg wrapped with wild garlic leaves, a real all round favourite. The top round is the creamy French blue Fourme d’Ambert and on top of that we have our Cambridge Cheese speciality goat’s cheese Lord Nelson which props up the creamy heart shaped Neufchatel. £150.
Lovely looking traditional cake, will serve 100. Bottom tier is Vintage Lincolnshire Poacher, a wonderful strong handmade cheddar matured in our cellars. On top of that is a ring of Kirkham’s Lancashire, a classic English crumbly and flavoursome cheese. Next up is Colston Bassett Stilton, this really is the best Stilton in the world, creamy yet powerful! Then we have a small artisan Fougerus Brie showing off it’s pretty fern leaf decoration, and right at the very top is a rich and creamy Neufchatel. £225.
CLASSIC CHEESE CAKE
This is our most tried and tested cake, it never fails to make an impression! Shown to the right in the picture below with an additional little goat’s cheese on top. It will nicely serve 150 people. The bottom tier is a chunky round of Vintage Lincolnshire Poacher, a gorgeous full flavoured cheddar style cheese for those that love a punchy cheddar. Next up is Cornish Yarg, classic and buttery this is an all round crowd pleaser and looks great with its nettle covering. On top of the Yarg is the wonderful Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue, creamy yet strong, it’s orangey colour looks particularly nice against the green of the Yarg.
