1. Three-Tiered White Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe From Taste

This cheesecake wedding cake is simply amazing. Like a traditional wedding cake, it features 3 tiers.

These 3 tiers look absolutely stunning, different in size, but apart from that they’re identical.

There’s a shortbread base, and the main part is made with gelatin leaves, cream, cream cheese, condensed milk and melted white chocolate.

To decorate, you’ve got pretty roses and fresh raspberries and strawberries, with a drizzle of berry sauce, made with raspberries and icing sugar.

2. No-Bake Two-Tier Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe From Cooking Tree

This beautiful, elegant can look simply gorgeous if you’re meticulous and get it right.

This version features 2 tiers, but if the couple wish, you could easily adapt the recipe to make a more traditional 3 tier cake.

There’s a lotus cookie base and vanilla and lemon flavored cheesecake filling, but before you pour your cheesecake mixture into your chosen mold, you place halved strawberries on the inside wall of the mold.

There are also red layers made by boiling some strawberries with sugar, before grinding the mixture in a blender and adding red food coloring and melted gelatin.

You simply pour this mixture onto the hardened cheesecake and leave them to cool.

Altogether this creates a stunning effect, and you can also decorate the top of the cake with more fresh strawberries.

3. Wedding Cheesecake Trio Recipe From Baking Mad

Granted, the trio of cheesecake recipes you can follow here aren’t necessarily intended to replace a wedding cake, but there’s no reason why you can’t adapt the recipe so that there are two or more tiers of each, for that wonderful wedding cake effect.

The three cheesecake recipes here include one no bake Oreo cheesecake, complete with an Oreo cookie crumb base.

There’s also a vanilla cheesecake with blueberries and mini meringues decorating its top.

And the showpiece, I would say, has to be the strawberry Prosecco cheesecake, which features fresh strawberries that have been left to marinade in Prosecco overnight.

4. Two-Tiered Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe From Live-In Kitchen

This two-tiered chocolate cheesecake will really go down a treat!

It’s perfect for a rustic style wedding because the white chocolate cigarette-style sticks that surround the outer edge give off a really rustic look.

The larger tier is positioned on a crust made from chocolate wafer cookies, sugar and butter.

The filling is the same in both tiers, made with chopped chocolate, semisweet and bittersweet, cream cheese, sugar, cocoa powder and eggs.

On the top you can drizzle some caramel topping and sweetened shredded coconut.

Let me tell you, this cheesecake tastes as good as it looks! And it’s a showstopper!

The crust has a rich chocolate flavor, thanks to the Oreo cookie crumbs and butter. Then there’s a thick velvety cheesecake filling made with the likes of flour, eggs, sugar, cream cheese, sour cream, and vanilla extract.

The covering the top of the cheesecake are juicy, glistening, ruby red morello cherries doused in dreamy kirsch liqueur.

You can also sprinkle a garnish of dark chocolate curls for full effect. So decadent and indulgent!

8. Luscious Almond Cheesecake Recipe From Taste Of Home

Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ones. This cheesecake may look very simple at first glance, but if you were to add one or two extra tiers on top, and take care to decorate in a manner befitting a wedding, then this could really be something special.

The base is made with crushed vanilla wafers, chopped almonds, sugar and butter, while the filling is made with the usual ingredients such as cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract.
