Say cheese!

I spent yesterday wandering the Lansing City Farmers' Market talking to some of its vendors. They are celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and I had a nice long chat with Glen Hill of Hills Home Cured Cheese. His family has been at the market since 1916 - wow! You'll be able to read more about the market and Glen in the next issue of edible WOW.

In the meantime, I wanted to share what I think is a phenomenal idea with so much potential. While Glen and I were talking, he had a customer come by to make selections for a wedding cake made from cheese wheels for one of her clients. I had never heard of this before, but apparently it is a growing trend. How fun and different, and how great is the mouse couple topper

  1. I like the idea of a cheese wedding cake - with some fruit on the side. But then, I am not much of a cakey person - unless it's chocolate! :)

  2. That is the cutest idea! You should send the cake wrecks lady that link, she features the real & great cakes on Sundays. Don't forget to drop on by and enter our Springtime giveaway! Hope you have a great weekend.

  3. This is wonderful- can't wait to tell Rosemary at the Cheese shop in Mattituck!

  4. Hi Nicole!

    I left a blog award for you on my blog. :)

    Have a good one!

  5. Thanks so much, Artfulife! I didn't know about the cake wrecks lady and love her blog! I'm sending her the link right now…
