What are cheese wedding cakes?
Cheese wedding cakes are cakes made entirely out of cheese. That’s right – no cake, just cheese! These unique cakes are becoming increasingly popular as more and more couples are looking for ways to stand out from the crowd on their big day.
They are completely customisable, so you can choose your favourite cheeses to create a cake that is truly unique to you. Plus, they taste amazing! If you’re looking for a show-stopping centerpiece for your wedding reception, a cheese wedding cake is the perfect choice.

a brilliant service
Love Cheese in York have provided a brilliant service for my niece’s wedding. We ordered a cheese wedding cake from Love Cheese. This started with a great cheese tasting session to enable us to choose which cheeses would make up the cake. Love Cheese kept in regular contact between ordering and picking up the cheese wedding cake. When we picked it up it was all boxed up and ready for us, and Harry, the owner, even carried the box to my car for me. The cheese wedding cake was a major centrepiece for the wedding and everyone loved it. A great shop and a brilliant service.

We loved the ‘cheese tower’ cake provided
We loved the ‘cheese tower’ cake provided for our wedding at York Guildhall by Harry & the team at Love Cheese. It was brilliant (and a great indulgence!) to have a guided tasting beforehand to select our cheeses, and they all worked brilliantly on the night. the cake was a massive hit among our guests and the service provided by Love Cheese is superb. We’d recommend them to anyone!
Wedding Cake FAQs
How do I cut the cheese in my cheese wedding cake?
Knife, samurai sword, axe. Go wild. Or alternatively, ask your caterer to portion up the cake once you have taken pictures.
How do I pick the cheeses for my cheese tower wedding cake?
With a cheese tasting! Before you decide whether or not to even choose a cheese tower for your wedding cake, you can book a tasting to choose what cheeses you want in your tower. You get to sit down with one of our cheese experts and try 20 different kinds of cheese to make sure your cake is built out of cheeses you love! A tasting costs £25 per couple.
How long will my cheese tower wedding cake last?
Soft cheeses will generally last 2-3 weeks, hard and blue cheeses around a month but possibly longer. You can also freeze any cheeses that are consistent and without cracks.
How many people will my cheese wedding cake feed?
We recommend about 50-80grams of cheese per person, so if you have spent £200 to £300 you may feed around 100 people. If you spend £100 to £150 then you may feed around 50 people.
How much does a wedding cake made of cheese cost?
Well, it’s kind of up to you and your budget… We’ve done cakes for £27 and cakes for £527 – it’s all about what you want, and how much you want to spend. We charge for the cheese based on weight, and so the more cheese you get, the pricer it gets.
How will my cheese tower wedding cake get to my venue?
We will get all your cheeses ready a week in advance, meaning you can pick up the cheese wheels and take them to the venue in plenty of time – the main thing is to make sure you can keep your cheeses refrigerated. Due to some of the cheese wheels being quite big, it’s important to make sure either you or your venue have room to keep them. We can deliver cheeses, but we only deliver locally if your venue is happy and able to store the cake. We will also charge for delivery and this will be worked out for each individual cake.
Who dresses the wedding cake?
You do! We don’t have anything to do with the dressing of the cheese towers – we just provide the cheese! However, we are very happy to give you some advice on ways you can dress it and what works or what would look good with the style of your wedding.
