    I don’t like cake, and nor does my FI.  But there’s nowhere in my hometown where I can get a tiered cheesecake.

    Just a FYI is you plan to serve cheesecake, just make sure that it stays cold and doesn’t sit out in room temperature.  My MOH had cheesecake and I helped serve it at her wedding, and it was so hard to cut, we pretty much had to scoop it out of the pan and didn’t look very good!  I know plenty of people have it, but just make sure it stays nice and cold!!!  Good luck with choosing and I Love Both, so it wouldn’t matter to me which one you had:)

    I think cheesecake is too rich for me. SAo, I’d rather have cake. Why not have cheesecake be the bottom layer of a tiered cake? Since it’s heavy… dunno if it’d work though. Or you could also do cupcakes and have all kinds of diff flavors.

    @stormy9973: This same thing happened at a party I went to! It still tasted okay (just a little mushy), but it didn’t look very appealing. You might not be able to display it all night like a regular cake because it might get too warm sitting out.

    I’m not a big cheesecake fan and I think regular cake appeals to more people. But if thats what you want then go for it..its your day!

    @missmouse29: me too! Both!!!!

    I’d eat either and be totally happy with either (although I’d MUCH prefer cheesecake to cakecake made with fondant).

    ETA: We considered cheesecake (read: I wanted to serve cheesecake) but too many of our guests (read: FI’s family members) are lactose intolerant, so we went the more neutral route.

    I like cheesecake better so that is what I picked… but I think MOST people will eat cakecake and quite a few people will not eat cheesecake..

    Our cheesecake wedding cake was the hit of our wedding!  It was three-tiered, buttercream frosted and looked just like a traditional wedding cake until you cut into it.  We even had three different cheesecake flavors: chocolate hazelnut, raspberry and lemon blueberry.  Everyone still talks about it.

    I would totally recommend doing this if you are at all interested, but do be sure that you work with a vendor who knows what they are doing! If you vendor doesn’t have a lot of experience in stacked cheesecakes for weddings they might have problems with temperature and consistency and also in the structure.  If you don’t want a stacked cake, individual cheesecakes can work well too!

    I chose cake just cause cheesecake is soo rich and you want people up and dancing. Not moaning and sitting 🙂 Maybe have a small one for you and FI?
