Earthy Cheese Cake
Our Earthy Cheese wedding cake will feed approx 50 people
(Do read below for options to feed 100+ people)
The base layer is approx 7.5″ diameter
Base/1st tier: Tomme de Savoie, 1.4kg – a beautiful thick, earthy brown grey rind encircles this semi-soft cow’s milk cheese from the Alpine region of France. Cheese that tastes this good isn’t usually good for the waistline, yet Tomme is made from raw skimmed cow’s milk after the cream has been drained off, giving this cheese a low fat content. The flavour varies a little throughout the year, ranging from grassy and slightly nutty to mushroomy, earthy notes. A slight tang and some delicate citrus notes (N.B: The rind can be a little bitter so plunge straight into the good stuff inside)
2nd tier: Cornish Blue, approx 1kg – This is delicious farmhouse blue cheese, with a lovely grey outer rind. It’s sweet, mild and creamy and has been internationally recognised by the many awards it has won
3rd tier: Baby Cornish Yarg, 1kg – This unique cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves which are picked wild from the surrounding area. A semi-hard cheese, slightly creamy and crumbly, texture is a bit between a cheddar and caerphilly. The flavour is fresh & lemony when the cheese is young becoming more aromatic with age and the edible nettles impart a delicate, slightly mushroomy flavour as the cheese matures. This is their 1kg baby version
Top tier: Dorstone – Individual fresh goats milk cheese covered in ash with a beautiful wrinkled rind. A lovely creamy texture with zesty notes
For larger wedding parties: Add another rustic cheese, such as the very delicious Hoe Red Leicester – please don’t think bland supermarket Red Leicester, this has caramel notes and is flavoursome, rich & delicious. This has a base diamater of approx 9.5 inches and is approx 3.4kg in weight, so will feed an additional 45 -50 people, making this an ideal cake for over 100 people. Simply add the £165.00 button to include this additional cheese.
Alternatively add the fabulously smooth Quickes Extra Mature Cheddar, a superb full flavoured traditional tangy Cheddar – approx 3.6 – 4kg in weight, ideal for 100 – 110 people. Simply click on the £170.00 button to include the cheddar with your cake order
