Cake love: a wild and natural cheese wedding cake decorated with garden grown lavender and herbs


Wild and natural cheese wedding cake tower with garden grown herbs and willow cake topper

I didn’t last long did I before I returned to a wedding cake covered in flowers, although in my defence this isn’t a sweet wedding cake – instead it’s a tiered tower of scrumptious cheeses.

Spotted over on a rather lovely wedding on Love My Dress that was featured recently, this cheese wedding cake is mounted on a tree trunk stand and covered in herbs, lavender and gypsophila.  If you go and have a look at the full wedding, a locally sourced homegrown flower affair (which you should!), you’ll discover that the bride’s mother grew and arranged all of the wedding flowers, including decorating this cheese tower.  What a mum!

Decorating with herbs in this kind of way is really up my street and I’ve featured a number of similar wedding cakes on the blog if this is a style you are looking for.  There was this rosemary wreathed wedding cake, this rustic wedding cake with herbs and ferns, and this lavender and rosemary decorated wedding cake.  For a winter wedding, why not consider this frosted cranberry and rosemary wedding cake?
