Cheese Wheel Cakes

A recent trend in the cheese world and weddings is to have a tiered “cheese cake” or “cheese wedding cake” made of whole wheels of artisan cheese and decorated with seasonal flowers, fruit, and/or fresh herbs. The Cheese Traveler’s staff will work with you to plan your special “cheese cake” for your wedding or large social event. For ideas, check out our pintrest page. Please call to make an appointment.
