I have a request from a bride who would like a 3 tier wedding cake and she would like it to be cheesecake. Is this even possible?? icon_confused.gif
Any insight or experience with this would be most helpful.

id do something like that site
but fondant on a cheese cake, i dont see working! maybe something a bit fancier could be piped on, but id encourage the fruit/ chocolate approach.

Maybe one of those cake stands that hold each tier separately? I'm no expert on stacking but I'd be afraid to stack cheesecakes directly.

I've attached a picture of my cousin's wedding cake. Not sure how it was done, but it was all cheesecake. Maybe a visual will help.

Hi, you need to show a photo from that site and ask your bride whether that is what she wants. Because there is cheese cake wedding cakes. Which they put cheese cake in between a cake. I got a recipe from one of CC members which was from Toba Garretts book. I have one of her books, but I need to check whether that recipe is in there. icon_smile.gif

Just make sure the venue can refrigerate the cheesecakes until right before they are served. They can not be sitting out on display like a regular cake.

There's a reason that the cheesecake is cold when you get it for dessert in a restaurant. icon_smile.gif

Thanks everyone...very helpful. Clearly a cheesecake does not lend itself to a traditionally stacked tiered cake. But maybe seperate tieres on a stand...hmmm icon_cool.gif

The cheesecake was very thick and frosted in a whipped icing, not buttercream then decorated.

Well, for one thing, if you inserted dowels into the cakes, they'd crack, wouldn't they? I'd say separate stands or floating tiers are a must for cheesecake.
