We are getting married in Aug and I would like a wedding cake made from cheese(I love the stuff)

Whats the problem? A lot of people dont like wedding cake anyway

Never ever heard of this, but what a talking point.

Go for it.

I remember someone having a pork pie wedding cake, so why not?

Jollygood 1-0 to the cheese

Id love it! Provide some yummy bread/crackers & scrumtpious chutneys ... mmm heaven!

My friend had it at hers, looked amazing and was really appropriate.

(I was a bit sad though, I proper love wedding cake.)

I saw them on the Paxton and Whitfield website and was gutted I didn't know about them before my wedding.

What about this?

My work colleague is doing this - entirely do-able, apparently!

MissTrumpton Tue 15-Jun-10 20:03:43

Lots of people like cheese. Maybe you could have a plain fruit cake (like M&S do) in the back for people who desperatly want a piece of cake.

Jasonthunderpants Tue 15-Jun-10 20:04:00

Blimey ,comments coming in to fast for me to keep up

DP will dare not go against public opinion

Go cheese ,go cheese, go cheese
If I had a south African trumpet I would be blowing it nowsmile

scurry they had a fruitcake and cheese layer wedding cake on one of their pages, god it sounds mouthwatering.

I had Apple pie and cheese in a diner in the US once...

nymphadora Tue 15-Jun-10 20:04:49

We were going to have one but never got round to ordering itblush

FiaGrace Tue 15-Jun-10 20:05:06

Do it, two of my friends had cheese wedding cakes and I must admit they were lovely.

I made quite a pig of myself on both occasions actually grin

deaddei Tue 15-Jun-10 20:05:14

My SIL had a porkpie 3 tier one.

I have been to a few weddings with cheese cakes, they look a bit naff IMO and I'm not a huge cheese fan so it's not something I would personally choose.

However, like all these things, if you like it do it! Your wedding day, your rules.

Back in 1996, I wanted chocolate cake as my wedding cake, and I was looked at as if I had 2 heads! In the end, I paid good money for fruit cake I HATED with a passion. Now chocolate and biscuit cake is the norm.

So you have the cake you want, it's your day and your money.

sumum Tue 15-Jun-10 20:05:45

My goodness they look fab fab fab.

I want one and I'm married!!

RobynLou Tue 15-Jun-10 20:06:20

my friend did this, it was awesome, but they ended up with ALOT of cheese left over (no bad thing!) also you need o make sure someone is on hand with dencent knives to cut it up, it was 'serve yourself' at my friends wedding, and most people struggled to cut it.

wubblybubbly Tue 15-Jun-10 20:07:54

I love the idea. Much better value than a cake.

Decorated with grapes etc, they look lovely, I could eat this right now.

KickButtowski Tue 15-Jun-10 20:08:26

WOW what a wonderful idea. I have never heard of doing this but I think it is brilliant. Go Cheese definitely, and post a pic so we can see what you went for.
