Whether you’re on the search for alternative wedding cake inspiration or simply fancy a late night snack, Tesco might have the solution to feed your culinary appetite.

The UK supermarket is currently selling a five-tier cake made entirely out of cheese.

Prices at just £30, each tier of the cake is made from five different types of cheeses.

At the bottom sits Coastal cheese, then Red Leicester, Blue Stilton, Wensleydale with sweetened dried cranberries and sweetened dried blueberries, and topped off with St Endellion Blue full fat soft mould ripened cheese.

Unsurprisingly, the cake weights a whopping three kilograms and must be ordered six days in advance.

However, Tesco isn’t the only consumer giant to sell such a magnificent cake option.

Competitor Waitrose offers a three-tier cheese wedding cake which weighs almost double that of Tesco at 5.5kg. The option is made from cheddar, stilton and Cornish yarg and costs £115.

Meanwhile, offers customers a five-tier version for £65.

It consists of two types of brie (Cornish Country Larder Organic and Goodwood Organic) and three types of cheddar (Vintage Organic Cheddar Cheese Truckle, Oak Smoked Organic Vintage, and Organic Heart-shaped Vintage), weighing a total of 2.5kg.

Tesco Finest Cheese Celebration Cake

The company states the “cake” is suitable for approximately 25-35 people. offers a slightly more premium priced version at £249, which is made from a staggering eight tiers of organic English cheeses.

Cornish Yarg, Colston Bassett, and White Nancy Goats Cheese are just a handful of cheese types used to build the foodie tower which is estimated to food 100-120 people.
