If you’re not a fan of cake, Costco now has another option for you. Sure, it’s less conventional, but it’s a viable option for couples in search of a more…savory option at their wedding reception.
Costco is now offering a five-tiered wedding cake composed entirely of artisan cheese. It weighs 24 pounds, serves between 105 and 150 people, and costs a whopping $439.99. Aptly titled the Cheese Lover Celebration Cake, this monstrosity includes five types of cheese: Red Leicester, Danish Blue, Murcia Al Vino, Tuscan Sheep’s Cheese, and Brillat Savarin Triple Cream Brie.
The cake does, however, come unassembled. The instructions read as follows: “Upon receiving your shipment, open the box and remove all of the cheese. Immediately transfer the wrapped cheese wheels into refrigeration until you are ready to use and assemble. Â When you are ready to assemble, take the cheese out of refrigeration, unwrap it and start stacking with the largest wheel on the bottom and end with the smallest on top. Decorate with dÃ©cor of your choice (flowers and dÃ©cor are not included).”
Some may say it’s a bit cheesy not to get a dessert wedding cake. In this particular instance, they might be right.
