A cheese wedding cake is a unique and delicious centrepiece for any special occasion. Choosing the right cheese wheel is essential to ensure a memorable experience for you and your guests. 


In this support article, we will guide you on how to select the perfect cheese wheel based on factors such as flavour preferences, occasion, pairing options, and serving size. We will also offer suggestions on matching cheese wheels with specific dishes or wines.


1. Consider your flavour preferences

With a wide variety of cheese wheel options available, start by considering your flavour preferences. Are you a fan of soft, creamy cheeses or do you prefer bold, strong flavours? Our cheese wheel options include Admiral Collingwood, Alpine Creamy Kaltbach, Applewood, Ballyblue, Beenleigh Blue, Berkswell, Blacksticks Blue, and many more. It is important to choose a cheese that you and your guests will enjoy.


2. Think about the occasion

Cheese wedding cakes can be customised to suit any occasion, from a formal wedding to a casual gathering. Consider the overall theme and atmosphere of your event when selecting your cheese wheel. A traditional choice like Brie de Meaux Rouzaire or Blue Stilton may be more suitable for a formal wedding, while a fun, fruity cheese like Wensleydale and Cranberry might be better for a casual party.


3. Pairing options

Consider the foods and wines you plan to serve alongside your cheese wedding cake. Some cheeses pair beautifully with specific dishes or wines, enhancing the overall dining experience. For example, soft cheeses like Camembert Rustique or Chaource pair well with sweet wines like Moscato or Riesling, while stronger cheeses like Colston Bassett's Blue Stilton or Cornish Blue call for bolder wines like Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel.


4. Serving size

The size of your cheese wheel will depend on the number of guests attending your event and the other food items being served. It is important to ensure that there is enough cheese for everyone to enjoy. You can estimate the required cheese weight based on the number of guests and whether your cheese wedding cake will be the main attraction or just a part of a larger menu.


5. Experiment with different combinations

Don't be afraid to mix and match different cheese wheels to create a unique and exciting flavour combination. Combining two or three different types of cheese can create a delicious and visually appealing cheese wedding cake.


In conclusion, selecting the right cheese wheel for your cheese wedding cake requires careful consideration of factors such as flavour preferences, occasion, pairing options, and serving size. By following these steps, you can create a show-stopping centrepiece that will delight your guests and make your special day even more memorable. Enjoy experimenting with different cheese wheels and pairing options to find the perfect combination for your event.
