Your wedding day should be a complete and utter fairy tale, down to even the tiniest of details. Planning out the essentials until the very moment you meet your Prince Charming at the end of the aisle can be a tad stressful, even for the gal who has her sh*t together on the regular. To ensure you make this memorable day your very own happily ever after, let’s begin with a reception staple, shall we? It’s no secret that sweet dreams are made of cheese, and for all of my fellow cheese fanatics out there, this one’s most especially for you. Wedding cakes made out of cheese may very well be the stuff of dreams, but you can also have one IRL on your special day. Get ready to swoon and salivate, people.
You’re probably thinking, “You’ve got to brie kidding me,” right? A wedding cake made entirely out of cheese may not be the traditional route to go, but who will be judging, anyway? It’s your day, and you make all of the rules. So bow down, betches. Besides, everyone loves some good cheese. Well, all of your gouda friends most likely do, so they’ll be here for this unique take on the typical wedding cake.
FYI: I have no problem going on with cheese puns all day long. Sorry, not sorry. Quite honestly, I'm sure many of us diehards would happily choose to live off of cheese alone for the rest of our lives. Needless to say, making cheese an esteemed guest at your wedding is only appropriate. Get the spotlight ready to slay. Warning: The photos in this article may very well make you faint because they’re just that damn delicious.
