Quick and easy appetizer for Bridal Showers or Weddings

Whenever I host a party, I always serve some sort of cheese and love to use cookie cutters to cut the cheese into shapes that match the theme of the party.  I was in the middle of creating the recipe for my next blog post (a cheese ball decorated to look like a wedding cake), when I came up with the idea for these cute little wedding cakes just made out of thick slices of cheese. I searched the Internet, sure someone had already come up with this idea, but couldn't find anything and wanted to share this simple yet clever idea with you.

I'm keeping this blog post as short as the recipe, so I can get back to work on my next recipe/post. Just a reminder about my current blog giveaway you can enter for a chance to win a $25 gift card. Contest runs through May 16,2011 and two winners will be selected.

Three Tier White Cheese Wedding Cakes

1/2" thick white cheese slices (Gouda, provolone, mozzarella, Gruyere)

Special Equipment Needed:
round cookie cutters 1", 1 1/4", and 1 1/2"
optional: small heart cookie cutters - 1/2", 1", 1 1/4"


Buy 1/2" thick cheese slices from your deli counter.  Use the round cookie cutters to cut an equal number of 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/2" round pieces from the cheese.  Place a 1 1/2" round on a serving platter. Stack a 1 1/4" on top and then a 1" on top of that. Repeat to create as many wedding cakes as you need.

Optional Decorative Cheese:

Use small heart shaped cookie cutters to cut out hearts. You can even make heart shaped wedding cakes.

Plan ahead and cut the rounds out of cheese and keep them stored in an airtight container until the day of your bridal shower.  Just before your party you can arrange the little wedding cakes on a serving platter. Add some heart shaped cheese for a nice touch. Serve with your favorite crackers.
