Amazing Cheese Wedding Cake

Posted on September 15th, 2012

Today one very happy customer sent us the result of a unique wedding cake she built…out of cheese!

The cake comprised a base of Goulds Cheddar, Red Lecister & Double Glouster whilst the middle layer was a full 2.5kg Blacksticks Blue. Finally the cake was topped by four Ravens Oak cheeses, with their white rind giving a lovely contrast to the deep orangey hue of the Blacksticks Blue.

We think a cheese cake is not just a brilliant idea for a wedding but a party in general, its unique and does two jobs in one! Everyone loves farmhouse cheese, which means there will never be any waste, and if there is…it won’t stay around for long as people rush to take the leftovers home!

Let us know what you think of this lovely cheese cake or if you need anything similar, get in touch with us at Butlers Larder.

Trotter Hill & friends


Our very special Trotter Hill Tasty Lancashire made the cut and we’re delighted!

Trotters Hill is a fully matured and very special rinded Lancashire Cheese. It is named after the steep hill near to our dairy in Inglewhite village. The locals used to trot horses there during the village fair.

We wrap Trotters Hill in muslin and store it at Throstle Nest Barn for one yearunique flora in the barn gives the cheese its deep, complex, savoury flavour and creamy pale yellow colour. We recommend enjoying it with a glass of your favourite local ale!

You can buy it from our online shop
