A Cheese Wedding Cake?

When it came to planning our wedding, my partner and I knew we wanted to avoid the traditional route wherever possible. Both of us are ardent cheese lovers, and the idea of a standard wedding cake just didn’t excite us. That’s when we discovered No2 Pound Street, an artisan cheesemongers and deli renowned for their exceptional cheese wedding cakes. This is our story of how No2 Pound Street made our dream wedding cake a reality and why a cheese wedding cake might just be the perfect choice for your special day.

The Initial Search

We started our search for the perfect alternative wedding cake by researching various options online. The idea of a cheese wedding cake piqued our interest immediately. It seemed not only unique but also a delightful twist that would surprise and impress our guests. Our search quickly led us to No2 Pound Street, a gem located in the heart of Wendover, Buckinghamshire. Their glowing reviews and impressive portfolio of cheese wedding cakes convinced us to book a tasting evening.

The Tasting Evening Experience

From the moment we walked into No2 Pound Street, we felt warmly welcomed. The atmosphere was cosy and inviting, with the delightful aroma of cheese filling the air. The staff greeted us with genuine smiles and a clear enthusiasm for their craft. We were guided to a private tasting area, set up beautifully for our evening.

The tasting evening was nothing short of spectacular. We were presented with a selection of cheeses that spanned various textures and flavours, accompanied by a curated selection of wines. The knowledgeable staff took the time to explain each cheese, its origins, and how it would complement others. They were attentive to our preferences and budget, ensuring that every detail was tailored to our needs.

Crafting the Perfect Cheese Wedding Cake

With the guidance of expert cheesemongers, we embarked on the delightful task of creating our cheese wedding cake. We sampled a variety of cheeses, from rich and creamy Brie’s to sharp and tangy Blues. Each cheese was more delicious than the last, making our decision both delightful and challenging. The staff were incredibly patient, offering suggestions and advice based on their extensive experience.

After much tasting and deliberation, we finalized our selection: a stunning tower of cheese that included a base of strong British cheddar, a middle tier of robust Stilton, and a top tier of delicate, creamy Sinodun Hill. The cake will be adorned with figs, grapes, and rustic flowers, creating a visual masterpiece that is both elegant and mouth-watering.
