What’s a bride to do if she doesn’t have a sweet tooth? Wedding guests expect a cake, after all.
Luckily, cheese mongers found the solution, creating crave-worthy treats for couples that prefer Brie to buttercream. Stacked just like a multi-tiered wedding cake, these cheese-wheel towers are popping up at weddings across the country--and newlywed couples are setting up elaborate spreads of crackers, fruits, and nuts for their guests. As a nod to the sugar-lovers at their celebrations, some couples are even pairing cheese-based cakes with small chocolates.
The savory creations are nothing short of show stopping, just like their sweet counterparts. We stumbled across cakes decorated with dainty flourishes from ribbon to chocolate tuiles and filigree. Check out all of the surprisingly elegant cakes--made from everything from Edam to Roquefort--below.
Don't let the olive branches and roses fool you; that's cheese, not cake.
Garnishes of fresh fruit and savory spices--like rosemary--ensure every guest can find a pairing they'll love.
Green grapes and pears and fresh succulents give this cake a color theme instead of frosting.
For the savory fans, all you need is a cute cake topper to complete the setting.
