At George and Joseph we have many years experience assisting our customers with their cheese cakes/towers for weddings and other celebrations. We can offer a bespoke service tailored to your individual wants but we now also offer an "off-the-shelf" service for those wanting to just click and buy.
There are three options for delivery - collect for free from our Chapel Allerton shop in North Leeds; UK-wide courier delivery; and we also offer a Yorkshire-wide delivery and set-up service which is available upon request at a cost dependent on location - please email us for more details.
As well as our larger cakes we also offer a selection of mini Celebration Cakes which look great as the centrepiece on any party table; cheese party packs which are whole pieces of cheese for those looking for a party cheeseboard; and party platters which are pre-portioned cheeses alongside chutney, crackers and fruit fully presented so you don't have to do a thing.
Here are some pointers on choosing cheese for your party:
firstly have a rough budget and headcount decided
as a very rough starting point we say budget around £2.80 per head
we recommend c100g cheese per person - however this can be reduced if it's a very small nibble you're providing and it would need to be increased if it is the main evening meal you are serving to your guests
those who would just like pieces of cheese for a cheeseboard should go for one of our party packs and those who would like a tower of cheese would need to choose one of our Celebration Cakes
we require a minimum two weeks notice before your event, however if you've left it later than this do still get in contact we can sometimes work a miracle of two
if you would like to order a cake from our website but it's not big enough we can add on additional weight of any of the cheeses which can be then be brought out alongside the cake at the time of serving - just email us with your additional requirements
softer cheeses such as Brie can go on the bottom with the use of supports which we can provide at no extra cost
you can also add on chutney, crackers, fresh fruit, decoration and fruit cake or pork pie layers
we can send any of our celebration cakes and accompaniments UK-wide via courier but this would not include any decoration or set-up service
we can provide a hand delivery and set-up service throughout Yorkshire and this is priced according to mileage - please email us for a quote
for any bespoke orders we can offer one consultation for free in our Chapel Allerton shop, any tastings/consultations on top of this would be charged at £10 per session
please ensure the cheese is brought out before serving to allow it to reach room temperature, however it is our advice it should not be out for anymore than four hours
with any courier deliveries we recommend delivery 2 - 3 days before the event - should there be any issues it then gives us time to rectify them but it also means your cheese is in the best condition for serving
All enquiries regarding bespoke Celebration Cakes should send us an email and we will respond as soon as we can.
