Um, I think that may be the best idea ever. 

But I would definitely consider that some people don’t like cheesecake – but of course, some people don’t like regular cake either, so I guess the non-cheesecake eaters could just deal! 🙂

Cheesecake sounds wonderful and more people like it than those who like cake actually. I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like cheesecake but there are probably some that exist. I’d pay more for a dessert that folks actually eat than to buy something they won’t touch which ends up being wasted money on your part.

However, most people do not like any toppings, buttercream or otherwise, on their cakes. It does alter the taste of the cheesecake underneath even after it is scraped off. Because cheesecake is so dense and heavy, a large number of bakers refuse to tier or stack it because it will collapse on itself. Having different flavors though is a great idea.

Here are examples of cheesecake setups at a wedding:

I LOVE CHEESECAKE. What a great idea. I think if your budget can swing it, you should do it. Alternatively, you could only have cheesecake as one tier (perhaps top tier), and have the rest be regular cake, in order to save. That way you have a compromise. Unfortunately cheesecake is really expensive…but that is often why it is sooo good and rich 🙂

I was contemplating on having cheesecake wedding cake, too, but the majority of my FI’s side’s family prefer regular cakes…  I was out numbered.  I’d LOVE to have a wedding cheesecake so if it works for you, go for it!

My gma makes amazing homemade cheesecake so she’s doing cheese cakes for the wedding. They aren’t going to be stacked. We’re doing chocolate chip and then plain so that people can add fruit and drizzle.

That sounds amazinggggg.  If dessert is your thing, you could choose to splurge here and cut back in other areas, but it’s really dependent on your budget.  BTW, can I call dibs on one slice of each flavor? : )

My sister did a tiered cheesecake for her wedding.  Each tier was half cheesecake and half corresponding regular cake.  For example one level was turtle cheesecake and chocolate cake.  I’m not a big cheesecake person but it was really good… a big hit.  And for those who didn’t want cheesecake she had a groom’s cake.
