How much cheese will I need?

We would recommend you allow 70g per person if your cheese cake is to be served as part of your wedding breakfast or buffet. If your cheese cake is the main attraction then we suggest at least 100g or more per person.

How do I take care of my cheese cake?

All cheese cakes are delivered preferably 2 days prior to your celebration and will need to be refrigerated on arrival, either at your home or chosen venue. Each of the cheeses are individually wrapped and can stay this way until the big day. Your cheese will be fine at room temperature for 4-5 hours, if it is a particularly hot day or the venue is very warm then we suggest you delay displaying your cake for as long as possible. Make sure your cheese wedding cake is out of direct sunlight and cover it with a clean damp cloth to ensure the cheese does not dry out.

When should I order?

Please give us at least 2 weeks notice to ensure the cheeses are ordered, reserved and in perfect condition for your celebration. We will always email and confirm your order and delivery date and safely book you in.

We generally need a minimum of at least 2 weeks notice, however if your wedding is fewer than 2 weeks away please do give us a call. We send out a large number of cheese cakes everyday and try to have a selection of cheeses always available so we will do everything we can to accommodate you at short notice without compromising on quality.

Do you offer tasting boxes?

If you are unsure which cheese to choose then our tasting boxes can help you decide. Each tasting box includes a sample of each of the cheeses in your cake. Order one of these for £32, this includes postage, and try the cheeses at home with a glass of wine and our tasting notes to guide you.

When do I pay?

You pay for your cake when you place your order online, we will book your delivery date and confirm your order. If you need any additional advice or guidance then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What to serve with your cheese?

We offer a beautiful selection of chutneys in kilner jars to display directly on the tables, or smaller jars of 280g. We have selected a stunning range of crackers and cheese biscuits for your celebration that we feel are the perfect accompaniment to your cheese tower.

Do you provide tasting notes?

We offer complimentary tasting notes and labels for your cake so that your guests can fully enjoy and appreciate what they are eating. The tasting notes always prove a hit and are a great point of discussion at your celebration.

What cheese should I order?

We have carefully designed all our cheese celebration cakes to offer a perfect cheese selection for a range of guests with differing tastes. Our thoughtfully designed range of cheese celebration cakes offer hard, soft and blue cheeses. Goats cheese is another wonderful addition to your cheese wedding cake. Our close relationships with local and handmade dairies means we are able to offer new discoveries and traditional favourites at competitive prices. If you want an even selection for everyone to taste then we suggest ordering a few extra of the smaller top tier cheeses to be served once the cake is cut.

Do you offer smaller cheese wedding cakes suitable for each separate table?

Yes! We offer cheese table cakes for your guests and this is becoming hugely popular. We carefully select  3 or 4 small cheeses to offer your guests a quirky cheese tower for each separate table. We are always available to talk cheese so please contact us for any extra guidance.

How do I decorate my cheese cake?

We do just supply the wonderful cheese for your celebration cake.

You will want to make your cheese cake your own, we recommend keeping any decorations simple as the cheese itself offers such stunning colours and earthy textures. We supply a beautiful range of decorations to complement our cheese cakes, including raffia, pearl beading and ribbon, candles and sparklers and cake toppers.

Fresh fruit, such as figs, grapes or plums can be a beautiful addition to the cake, as can seasonal flowers or herbs, but overall the cheese speaks for itself and any decoration should be minimal.

Why choose a cheese wedding cake?

Cheese wedding cakes have become hugely popular allowing brides and grooms to match their personality and taste. A cheese wedding cake can be chosen in addition to the more traditional cake, while an increasing number are now opting solely for a cheese cake on their special day. Cheese towers can be significantly cheaper than the usual traditional types and a lot of people are just not a fan of sponge or fruit cakes, especially with each guest having a dessert at the wedding breakfast. It also seems the lure of cheese seems more appealing with the alcohol that is on offer! Our stunning collection of cheese towers will make the most beautiful wedding cake, either as the main cake or as a wonderful cheese board for your guests.

Do I need to order more of the small cheese on the top tier?

As you get higher up the tiers so the cheeses get smaller. If you want an even selection for everyone to taste, we recommend ordering a few extra of these smaller ‘top tier’ cheeses to be served once the cake is cut.

What about delivery?

We deliver your hand picked artisan cheese cake by DPD, who are an overnight carrier. Our next day delivery cost in £7.99 for each address in the mainland UK for up to 20kg, perfect for all your celebration cheese needs. All our parcels can be tracked and we offer a text prediction service, so by supplying a mobile number we can send a text on the day of delivery advising the hour in which your delivery is due. We deliver to your home address, caterer or chosen venue on Tuesdays- Fridays. We can also deliver to the Scottish Highlands or Isle of Wight so please contact us for pricings.

How will my cheese cake be packaged?

We send all our cheese celebration cakes in one of our environmentally friendly card boxes. We add ice packs so the cheese is kept at the correct temperature in transit and use bubble wrap to keep the moisture away from the products and rest of the packaging.

Can I order a cheese cake which isn't for a wedding day?

We now supply a large number of cheese cakes for every kind of celebration, including birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, dinner parties and lots more. Cheese cakes make the most beautiful addition to every kind of gathering and are a very cost effective way to offer guests a diverse and memorable cheese board. All our cheese cakes come with tasting notes and are a fantastic addition to any party.
