There are wedding cakes and cheese boards but who would have thought of a Cheese Wedding Cake? The familiar three-tiers but made out of the most mouth-watering fresh, natural, local cheese … Cheese Wedding Cakes offer a modern and delicious alternative to traditional cakes – and great for when your guests get a little peckish later in the evening. Some couples will opt for both a Cheese Wedding Cake and a cake wedding cake to satisfy both their savoury and sweet toothed guests!
But the question is how should you decorate such an unusual cake?
Lindy has always embraced a bit of sugar and spice but as you know likes every cake – sweet or savoury – to look amazing. That’s why, she has come up with the perfect Bride and Groom sugar toppers and runs one of her Lindy’s workshops in modelling with the user-friendly Artista Soft. Artista is a perfect medium because it is incredibly versatile. It contains no toxins or resins and is predominantly made from rice and potato flour and never becomes sticky so is wonderful to work with! It comes in a range of colours and can be blended to create bespoke colours as you would with sugarpaste. For detail, you can use a sugarshaper to create the hair and embossing sticks to add ‘embroidered’ texture to the fabric, as often seen on the groom’s waistcoat and bride’s bodice.
A Bride & Groom Topper is a wonderful adornment to put on the top of a wedding cake where you can create a detailed and personalised keepsake of a bridal couple. Perhaps their most endearing feature is that the Bride & Groom Toppers are both stunning & humorous in equal measure as they can be personified in caricature style. Figures can be matched to the bridal couples hair, skin, bridal flowers and clothing with the topper being a permanent reminder of a wonderful occasion.
For the actual cheese cake, there are some dedicated cheese specialists who work hard on concocting tiers of flavours that will delight and surprise your wedding guests. One is cheese company, La Cremerie designing bespoke Cheese Wedding Cakes from petite cheese cakes to feed 40 guests up to gargantuan towers of cheese to feed over 250 people. La Cremerie’s cheese expert, Emma Dandy uses delicious British cheeses in the cakes, with more than 100 different cheeses to choose from. She offers brides and grooms a free cheese tasting and consultation to find out which cheeses they do (or don’t) like in order to come up with a suitable cake.
The sugarcraft creations are hard to beat but sometimes it is nice to pamper our palate with a savoury pay-off and have that something a little different for that special day. Once you’ve thought about cheese, you may wish to be even more adventurous and go for a few wedding tiers in pork pie … Where will it end?
Happy Sugar Topping and Cheese Tasting!
