Cheesecake may automatically make us think about the Golden Girls or The Cheesecake Factory, but soon it may bring weddings to mind instead. Cheesecake wedding cakes have taken receptions by storm for a few reasons: allergies, fun and originality. Let’s look at each of these.
Food Allergies and Sensitivities
The first and maybe most important reason that many bridal couples are choosing cheesecakes is that food allergies and sensitivities are on the rise. Many people are now realizing that they are sensitive to gluten and sugar. Offering cheesecake at the wedding may help guests enjoy have their desert and eat it, too.
Gluten allergies and sensitivities are being diagnosed a lot more often than in the past. What does this mean to those wedding attendees who cannot eat gluten? Simply, those sensitive to or allergic to gluten should not or cannot eat wheat. Which means they cannot eat flour or cakes made with flour. Thankfully, cheesecakes can often be made without flour, and they can become the perfect solution to the cake conundrum at the wedding reception.
Due to the high fat content of cheesecake, the cake may be a great option for those sensitive to sugar. Hyperactive children, diabetics, and others may appreciate the cheesecake option, depending on their own dietary needs.
Fun and Originality
The other two reasons that cheesecake wedding cakes may be appealing to the bridal couple is that a cheesecake is fun and original. Who will forget the wedding where cheesecake is served? The fun and quirky choice will surely be memorable.
Another fun part of cheesecake comes when it is time for the bride and groom to feed each other cake. Smashing frosting cake in one another’s faces is fun. But smashing cheesecake into your husband’s face may be even more fun.
Although cheesecakes are fun and original, though, if you are seeking a cheesy alternative to the cake desert, the cheese “cake” may be a great option. This cake is simply a tier of cheeses. For those worried about allergies or those who desire a more original desert, a tiered cheese “cake” may be a better option.
Overall, cheesecake wedding cakes can be a fun, original choice that can help you and your guests enjoy the reception in a memorable way. When every guest can eat cake, the party may be better than ever. So book that cheesecake or cheese “cake” for your wedding reception.
