There's an episode of Amazing Wedding Cakes where Merci Beaucoup Cakes makes a cheesecake groom's cake that looked like a wheel of cheese:

The only cheesecake wedding cakes I have seen have been on separate stands like this http://www.towedding.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/wedding-cake-stands12.jpg

I have never seen one stacked.

after thinking about it ... i mean, just because the bride doesn't like cake doesn't mean all her guests don't either. maybe only one tier can be cheesecake.

Both good ideas. I'd already suggested making just the top tier cheesecake & the rest regular cake, but she hasn't decided yet.

Has anyone considered dowelling the layers? Do you think this would work with cheesecake?

I have made a stacked wedding cake using cheesecakes. I bakes the cheesecakes in foil lined cake pans, different sizes, 12", 10" and 8 inches. I overlapped the foil so I could lift the cheesecakes out of the pan after freezing. I baked them and froze them and stacked them on foam board that was cut just slightly smaller than the cheesecake itself. I stacked 2, 12" tiers and then 2, 10" tiers on top of each other, putting a set of plastic square dividers in to elevate the top tier. I then iced everything with Bettercreme and made decorations. Every one loved the look and the "cake" itself. What was great is I kept them frozen until I got to the reception area and lifted all out of the pans and set them on the foam board. Way easier to handle.

The only thing I would worry about was how long it would have to sit out for health reasons. I know some people do it, but I am too concerned about people getting sick! lol
