Tesco is now selling a five-tiered cheese wedding cake for £30

All of the yes

There are so many things to think about when you’re organising a wedding – the venue, the dress, the flowers, the invites, the seating plan, the wedding readings, the food…

But if there’s one thing that’s a traditional (and extortionate) wedding staple, it’s the cake. A vital part of the day, but also one that can end up costing hundreds of pounds depending on the size and number of tiers.

So how do you decide what flavours to go for? Do you copy Meghan Markle and opt for an organic lemon and elderflower bake? Or do you go rogue and choose a rich chocolate sponge?

Or do you forget going sweet completely and get yourself a wedding cake made entirely of cheese? Tesco have recently made this an option, and the best part is that it’s only £30.

The five-tiered cheese wedding cake uses a variety of flavours, from Coastal Cheddar cheese at the bottom, followed by Red Leicester, topped with Blue Stilton underneath a Wensleydale with sweetened dried cranberries and sweetened dried blueberries, with the final layer a delicious St Endellion Brie.

All that cheese for £30 is an absolute bargain.

Sound good? Yeah, we think so too.

The whole cake weighs just under 3kg and Tesco says that it will serve 23 people – so if you’ve got a long list of cheese-loving wedding guests, you might need to consider getting a few in.

If you want to get your hands on one for your big day you’ll have to ordered it six days in advance.

Tesco isn’t the only supermarket to offer a cheese wedding cake. Waitrose has a three-tier offering, weighing 5kg, but it is almost four times the price, coming in at £115. It includes Hafod Welsh Organic Cheddar, Cropwell Bishop Stilton and Cornish Yarg and sounds like a delight – so the option is there if you want to shell out a bit more.

Otherwise, Tesco has you covered and we’re sold.
