Say cheese to an alternative wedding cake

wedding in Tuscany cake idea

PH: Lisa Poggi

When most people think of Italy they think great views, wine and yummy food like pizza and pasta and I must agree that these are the first things that I would think of too but another thing that is extremely good is cheese…just think mozzarella, parmesan, asiago, pecorino…I could go on and on. So if you’re thinking of having an alternative wedding in Tuscany why not think of having a cheese cake?


When I say cheese cake I don’t mean the typical cheesecake you would get anywhere but a cake made up of cheese wheels just like the one you see in the photo of  Rebecca & Rob’s wedding. The wedding cake is quite an important part of the wedding day but if you’re feeling like you don’t want to have the traditional cutting of the cake then pull out those knives and dig into some gorgeous Italian cheese!

If you want your wedding to end with a bit of a twist then an alternative wedding cake could be a great way to surprise all of your guests. This obviously doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to satisfy your sweet tooth, just have a dessert buffet at your wedding, this way you get the best of both worlds!

I must admit that I am a great cheese lover so I fell in love with this idea as soon as I saw it but the more I thought about it the more ideas to make all the cheese wheels look amazing came to mind… you could add flowers or fruit to make this kind of cake look even more fantastic and you won’t even have to give up the cake topper.

Another plus about having an alternative wedding cake made out of cheese is that it won’t go to waste because seasoned cheeses keep for ages…you will be able to enjoy your ‘wedding cake’ for months after the actual wedding in Tuscany. Are you liking this idea? we can arrange for it to happen and even arrange for you to go on a tour of the pecorino cheese factory.
