10 inch (25cm) Base Cheeses

We have available a selection of 10 inch/25cm base cheeses which you can purchase independently. Intended for our cheese cakes, but of course, if you are having a party a whole large wheel of cheese is always impressive.

All our cheese cakes give you the diameter of the base cheese we use.  If you like the look of some of our smaller cakes, with an existing base diameter of either 7- 8″ (17.5 – 20cm)  but need a larger cake, then why not choose one of the cheeses below and add to your order to create a larger cheese cake.

These are all handmade cheeses, so please note these are minimum weights and all dimensions are approx

Cornish Yarg
Cornish Yarg, 3kg – This unique cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves which are picked wild from the surrounding area. A semi-hard cheese, slightly creamy and crumbly, texture is a bit between a cheddar and caerphilly. The flavour is fresh & lemony when the cheese is young becoming more aromatic with age and the edible nettles impart a delicate, slightly mushroomy flavour as the cheese matures
Thomas Hoe Aged Red Leicester
Hoe Stevensons Red Leicester (now Rutland Red) , 3.6kg– We really love the superb nutty sweetness of  this aged red leicester. Comes into us clothbound, which we remove prior to sending.  This Red Leicester has a superb caramel flavour and deep rich colour. Makes a beautiful and colourful addition to the cheese board or your wedding cake.
Quickes Cheddar
Quickes Mature Cheddar, 4 – 4.5kg – A superb handmade traditional cheddar which has the quality and unique and complex flavour of a traditional rinded cheddar. The mature is a good all round cheddar with a good flavour but without too much bite, so a great crowd pleaser

pork pie and cheese cake

Hafod Cheddar, 4kg – The base cheddar shown in this picture is Hafod Cheddar. Hafod is a traditional hard cheese handmade on Wales’ longest certified organic dairy farm, Bwlchwernen Fawr.  This is an unpasteurised cheddar and does show signs of blue veining at times which is perfectly normal and edible, we don’t want you to think it’s off, it’s an acceptable part of unpasteurised cheeses at certain times of the year. This cheese uses Ayrshire milk which is rich in butterfat and protein. Hafod its buttery, rich with nutty flavours and a good strong flavour
