Gift Box Option


Penguin CakeOur Penguin Cake has approx 1.8-1.9kg of cheese and will feed approx 15+ people as part of a buffet.  

You have the option to order an additional Perl Las so you have a little more blue cheese (simply stack two together and tie with raffia – supplied free of charge with the extra cheese)

The base layer is approx 6″ diameter. 

Cost £55.00

INCLUDED: 4 x mixed penguins, and wooden star (may be green or red)

Base/1st tier: Fine English Vintage Cheddar, 1kg – A delicious strong vintage cheddar with a smooth creamy finish. Very similar to Godminster even down to it’s lovely burgandy wax (this one has a cut top so you can see the cheese)

2nd 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

3rd 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

4th 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!

INCLUDED: 4 x mixed penguins, and wooden star (may be green or red).   No other decoration included but can be purchased separately from our ‘accessories’ page
