Bespoke Wedding Cakes
If you are interested in a cheese-based wedding cake for your big day, then Crook and Churn can supply the cheeses to create a fabulous addition for your after-wedding celebrations.
Each cheese will arrive with you in peak condition during the week leading up to the wedding, depending on where you are. You just need to refrigerate the cheeses until the day, and then unwrap, assemble and finally decorate it to your taste. You can see a few ideas from some of the cakes our customers have decorated in the past below.
Choosing the cheeses could not be simpler. Just click here to see our list of wedding-cake cheeses complete with dimensions and prices. As a rule-of-thumb 70g to 100g per person is the usual guideline. 70g is ample if you are serving the cheese immediately after the breakfast or as part of a buffet. If the cheese is the main part of the evening buffet, you will need to allow at least 100g per person.
We recommend that you build the cakes with the heavier hard cheeses at the base, and then as the cake is built consistently smaller cheeses are chosen to create a tiered effect. Most people seem to choose between 3 and 5 cheeses, but the final decision is down to you. Please feel free to contact us for advice.
Finally, we understand how expensive weddings can be, and here is where we can help. Because we are wholesaler of cheese (not a retailer) you basically cut out the ‘middle man’ and should find that our prices reflect this.
All we ask from you is that we have at least two weeks notice, although many people prefer to order much earlier than this.
If you wish the cheeses to be delivered to a place within our delivery area then we can arrange this at no extra cost. If however, it is outside our area, we would then use a courier which would incur a delivery charge.
Payment can be made by BACS or cheque and has to be no later than 7 days before delivery.
