'A different kind of wedding cake' by pocketcultures, via Flickr

 

At the moment, wedding suppliers and brides-to-be are busy preparing for the Spring 2015 wedding season. One trend which has been gaining popularity recently is that of having a cheese cake instead of a regular wedding cake. This isn't a traditional cheesecake with a biscuity base and a flavoured mascarpone topping. Here, we're looking at a stack of cheese wheels layered on top of each other, in order to resemble a stereotypical wedding cake. These are cakes which are literally made of stacks of cheese! Cheese cakes are set to be some of the hottest things to sweep the wedding world next year: are they just a foodie fad, or will they become a staple at celebrations?

There are so many benefits to having a cheese cake. For starters, it can double up as the dessert. What better way to end your meal than with a course of cheeses, crackers and good wine for your guests?

On the upside, it's a lot easier to keep several layers of cheese cake than sponge cake if there are any leftovers. In addition, cheese creates a lot less mess, which is particularly important if you'll be doing the cleaning up afterwards! Anything that helps to avoid hoovering trodden-in cake crumbs has got to be a good thing!

Of course, one of the most appealing features of having a cheese cake is that it's still relatively unusual - for now, at any rate! Although cheese cakes are becoming much more popular these days, they haven't quite become common yet. This means that brides choosing a cheese cake can stay ahead of the trend, having something unique which their guests won't have seen before!

On the other hand, maybe it's unusual for a reason. There may be a reason why fruit and sponge cakes have been the most popular cakes at weddings for centuries!

Let's face it. At the end of the day, the guests will probably be expecting something sweet and decidedly cake-like. Unhappy guests do not make for an enjoyable wedding at all!

Furthermore, there are countless different things you can do with traditional wedding cake, in terms of flavours and design. Whatever the style or theme of your wedding, you can create a cake to suit.

All things considered, it's not difficult to see why cheese cakes are becoming so popular. They're a little different from the norm and they can double up as an extra (rather sophisticated) course. However, there's nothing quite like tucking into some sweet, crumbly, cake-y goodness. It seems like cheese cakes are putting a welcome twist on modern weddings, but I don't think they will ever really surpass traditional wedding cakes!
