    I love it!  We are going to our bakery tomorrow but I’m so against traditional cake because I feel like no one ever eats it.


    We are also doing a plate of italian desserts and pastries on the tables and a chocolate fountain with fruit.  More people are excited for that than anything!


    Would love to hear how it turns out!!!

    cookie is awesome.. i would want cake though. i get mad at weddings when they serve the cake  really late and i have to leave early… or when there is no cake…  my fil had petite fours for his wedding cake and i wasnt happy cause they didnt order enough for everyone to have more then one… one bite of dessert is not good when dinner is authentic spicy food that no one at the table knew what it was or if there was an ingrediant that i am allergic too….

    I love cake, but if I got cookie and frozen custard I would be totally happy with that. I would eat a little cheese but I wouldn’t be that excited about it, LOL.

    I think the “cheese” cake is an awesome idea and so are the jumbo cookies for each table!  If this is what represents you and your fiance, then I say go for it!  I think the biggest thing is that a lot of people like to end the night with something sweet.  So as long as there is enough custard/cookie for everyone at the table, no one should miss the cake.  Personally, I LOVE cake.  It’s going to be one of the main events at my wedding, but I would be thrilled to get your dessert too.  If someone is disappointed, they’ll get over it.  Go with what will make YOU happy!

    Wedding cake is usually not all that great so I would love it.  FIL and ex step mil had bread pudding and cake and the breadpudding was a hit

    @delovely13:  I would eat both! I love cheeses (I, ahem, tend to eat them by the block). And I prefer cookies over cake (Pizookies, anyone?).

    I really want this:

    BUT since it’s a heart attack, wrapped in a stroke, smothered in diabetes, I’m not sure how committed I am to subjecting my guests to death by chocolate-brownie-cheesecake-cookie-graham-marshmallow-more chocolate.

    That is such a fun idea! I would be perfectly happy with cookies and icecream. I love it when there is a unique wedding “cake” that means something to the bride and groom. Makes it so much more personalized. Doesn’t matter if it isn’t actual cake! I can get sponge cake and buttercream at any bakery whenever I feel like it.

    But that said….


    omg that cake looks phenomenal.  I will take the death by chocolate, svp 😛

    That is a great idea! Especially because it incorporates your family and your personalities.

    We are doing a small 2 tier cake that serves 100. With this we can still have our cake cutting photos, feed each other cake and have cake for those that do eat wedding cake (FI and don’t usually). We are also having cookies for 200 people (we have an extremely large guest list). There will be 2 in a bag. This is for those that don’t necessarily like cake but want something sweet (this is more Fiance and I).  A friend of mine had a huge 4 layer cake “on display” and 4 sheet cakes in the back at her wedding. She ended up throwing away most of her tiered cake and 2 of the sheet cakes. I don’t want to spend all that money on a wedding cake and throw most of it away.

    I love your idea! I think that having something besides cake can portray more of the bride and grooms personalities. My fiance and I are not big cake fans so we are having ice cream and cookies for our dessert!

    I am a goddess of cake and even to me this sounds great! Cheese and cookies and you’re still technically cutting a cake? Amazeballs.

    I think the literal cheesecake is a cute idea, especially if your family is known for being in the cheese business but I also really like cheese. Not really “out there” but we’re having a regular wedding cake but instead of a groom’s cake we’re having several cheesecakes. One large turtle cheesecake (since most people will probably want that) and the a smaller pumpkin-maple cheesecake (Fall wedding) and some kind of fruit like raspberry or blueberry. My dad goes to church with a lady who makes them around the holidays and not only do the takes amazing but they are also GORGEOUS.

    I’m originally from Wisconsin and love cheese! I usually being cheese back (specifically cheese curds) whenever I visit. Anyways, I would choose cookie or cake anytime!

    I really like this idea!  I cannot eat gluten, so there’s usually nothing for “dessert” at a wedding that I can have.  I would be so excited to see a cake made out of cheese!  This would also be great for diabetics, those without much of a sweet tooth, etc.  Plus, with the cookie cakes, you have your bases covered.  Go for it, girl! 🙂

    I love this!  I think it is funny and cool.  Lucky you, cheese store 🙂
