Our Tips for the Perfect Tower
How much cheese do I need?
About 70-100g of cheese per person is ideal for an after-dinner course. Double that if you are making it the main attraction!
When should I order my tower?
Always order your cheese wedding cake well in advance so you can be sure that the cheese will be available and perfectly ripe on the day. We suggest a minimum of one month prior to the event.
How should I display my tower?
Make sure you buy, hire or make a great cake stand - whether it’s a rustic round of wood, or a traditional glass or ceramic piece.
When should I start putting my tower together?
Your cheese tower can be assembled hours before you need it and stored in a cold room or fridge until needed. Make sure the tower is brought out an hour before serving, so the cheeses are at room temperature when consumed!
How should I put the tower together?
When putting your cheese tower together have a plan in mind. Prepare by unwrapping your cheeses. Place the hardest cheeses with the greatest diameter at the base of the tower (usually a cheddar). The softest and smallest can be placed towards the top of the tower. Then dress with your floral decorations, dried and fresh fruits to your own style. Tip: Ask your florist to assist with wired flowers and just get creative.
What should I decorate the tower with?
There are many styling options: flowers, fresh fruit, dried fruit, herbs, mini bunting, cake toppers, greenery, nuts and honeycomb. You will also want a selection of breads and crackers to serve your cheese with – and don’t forget the knives!
