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 in this photo found on Flickr from Burrells of Gressenhall!
