Frequently asked wedding cake questions:
When should I order?
We love early orders, so we can ripen everything to perfection and some cheese we do need to pre-order from our suppliers which can take up to 3 weeks so the sooner the better for us! You choose your delivery date in the third page of the checkout. We can of course take last minute orders but we only keep so much cheese in stock so if we get a lot of late orders so it may be that we need to swap things around a bit but we would always get in touch if that was the case.
Please order for a Thursday delivery if you can for a weekend wedding and generally a few days before you need it. Since covid, the couriers no longer guarantee a 24 hour delivery, although 99 out of 100 do get there in time. Obviously you don't want to be the one that doesn't if it then means your wedding cheese is in a depot for the weekend! We put plenty of ice in so if it takes 48 hours the cheese will be fine and at least then if there's a broken van or someone off sick you'll still get your cheese in time for your big day!
Decoration and set up
All of our cheese is sent out in it's original packaging if possible as this is best for the cheese. You will need a sharp knife to get into any vacpacked cheeses (the worcester hop/whittington oak if they are in your stack) and it's best to have some clingfilm to hand to use when handling the cheese so you don't need to touch it.
All of our wedding cakes will stand under their own weight, you can literally just stack them up in the order in the picture and they will be fine, no dowel or anything required.
There is no decoration supplied with any of the cheese stacks. A few flowers/figs/grapes/herbs can work wonders!
Can we swap cheeses around?
We often tweak the wedding stacks on the site to suit peoples tastes. we are obviously limited by the sizes of the cheeses available but we can mock things up so you can get an idea how things look and recommend substitutes if you have doubts about something in a stack, just get in touch at email@example.com and let us know your thoughts.
