At five tiers for £30, it might have just become our plan for Saturday night in the house (Picture: Tesco)Standard wedding cake flavours include vanilla, chocolate, or fruit. But what about a cake made of cheese for your nuptials?
Tesco’s new offering to the market gives the chance for you to have exactly that, and for a fraction of the price of a usual cake.
It’s a five-tier ‘cake’ that features five different wheels of cheese on top of each other. Those cheeses are Coastal Cheddar, Red Leicester, Blue Stilton, Wensleydale with sweetened dried cranberries and sweetened dried blueberries, and a nice hearty St Endellion Brie. Certainly something for every fromage fan out there.
Although it’s not exactly vegan-friendly, it’s a perfect option for those getting married who don’t want to go for a sweet option.
Plus, at £30 and with a weight of 2.9 kilos, it’s also a very purse-friendly option.
To give it a wow factor, some figs, grapes, and assorted chutneys can be arranged around the stack, as well as some edible flowers to make everything a bit more wedding-y.
Waitrose have their own cheesy offering too (Picture: Waitrose)You need to order the cake six days in advance, making a quickie elopement pretty difficult. However, the next best thing on the high street is quite a bit more expensive, so them’s the breaks.
If you do want to go for something a bit more fancy, Waitrose have a 5.5 kilo cheese wedding cake.
Their starter cheese wedding cake has three tiers, comprising of Hafod Welsh Organic Cheddar, Cropwell Bishop Stilton, and Cornish Yarg. It’s more expensive at £114, but it does serve 85 people.
In typical Waitrose wording, they say it ‘pairs wonderfully with dry cider or a crisp floral Reisling’. It should also pair nicely with the cheesy dance moves your family will be pulling out at the reception.
