2. Say Cheese

For those with a more savoury tooth – the alternative rustic cheese cake. Pile up the cheeses of choice, lay out the crackers and prepare your guests for a savoury feast. Soft cheeses such as goats cheese and brie shouldn’t be left on display for too long so add them as top tiers at the last minute, or put soft cheeses around the bottom of the display.
