Using black and white cheeses creates a striking, dramatic and much more designed look. Finding cheeses to make this was quite a challenge, and to do it we've had to venture a little outside our usual Westcountry selection. But the seven-layer result is one that we're delighted with, and if you want to amaze your guests this might be one way to do it!

The black cheeses are waxed, and two of them (the biggest and smallest) are the Snowdonia Cheese Company's 'Black Bomber'. Now take note: this is a properly strong cheddar. The middle-sized black cheese, however, is a great contrast - Devon's own Curworthy, a lovely mild, easy-going thing.

As for the whites, down at the base is a Cambazola - the very popular German blue brie. Next one up is a Duckett's Caerphilly - a classic which, again, will contrast nicely with the cheddar. A  Cranborne brie and a very small Gevrik complete the picture.

9.5kg in all: we'd see this as suiting 90-100.

Decoration Pack

The cake shown was decorated by Annie, photographed by Bim. Don't forget that we're only supplying the cheese, so you'll need someone to take on the decorating job! If it helps, add the Decoration Pack which will help you get the look, though we can't send the spangly crowny thing (which Annie rather unhelpfully got in Oslo). Also - we don't include the white rose used on top, or the black olives - but everything else you can see there.

Blue 88

The Blue 88 is still black-and-white! But it features a Beenleigh Blue in place of the Duckett's Caerphilly. Beenleigh is white with tiny blue flecks, so it preserves the look
