Orwell Cheese Wedding Cake

Serves 95 - 135 guests ~ Free UK delivery ~ Self assembly to match your wedding theme ~ British artisan cheese

The largest of our cheese wedding cakes is a spectacular six-tiered stack of British artisan cheeses. Magnificent nettle-wrapped Cornish Yarg provides the base, upon which sits a wonderfully savoury wheel of Sparkenhoe Blue. Distinctively shaped Ticklemore goat’s cheese, with its delicious lemony flavour, is next, followed by Mrs Temples’ full-flavoured Binham Blue. Our fifth layer is creamy Brie-style Baron Bigod, whose exquisite softness is protected by a wooden box for delivery. The crowning glory is ash-coated Pavé Cobble, a fresh sheep’s cheese named and shaped in honour of the cobbled streets of Europe.

The Orwell cheese wedding cake is the perfect way to share your love of cheese with friends and family on your special day. This cake weighs 9.4kg and will serve between 95 and 135 guests. The diameter of the base cheese, Cornish Yarg, is 25cm. The cheeses are delivered unadorned, ready for assembly and for you to decorate with seasonal fruits, flowers and decorations that echo the bride’s bouquet or your wedding theme. Read more
