baby penguin cakeOur baby Penguin cake is a smaller variation on our Penguin cake.  This would make a lovely little cheese gift or great for a smaller party.  As always, a lovely unique way to serve your Christmas Cheese

1st tier: Baby Cornish Yarg, 500g half ring – 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. This is their 1kg baby version.

2nd tier: Perl Las Blue Cheese, 200g – Made entirely by hand in the lovely and lush valley of the river Cych in Carmarthenshire.  This is a beautiful mild/medium blue cheese it’s strong but delicate and creamy with lovely lingering overtones

3rd tier: Brillat Savarin, 100g –  a deliciously, rich decadent triple cream dessert
cheese. Chalky & fresh when young maturing into a luscious creaminess with rich buttery notes.   Made in the Ile de France region, it pairs well with Champagne! You’ll be wanting more than one!

Top: Capricorn, 100g – This little goats cheese has won a staggering amount of awards over the years.  It is a delicious, velvety soft goats cheese.  Mild and crumbly when young developing into a softer, creamier fuller flavour as it matures

INCLUDED: 3 x mixed penguins, and a small amount of green raffia
