THE FUW enjoyed a successful Welsh Dairy Show, celebrating the industry with members and key stakeholders, highlighting why #FarmingMatters. FUW president Glyn Roberts said: “We have enjoyed a successful Welsh Dairy show, putting the spotlight on #FarmingMatters and celebrating our dairy industry. Over the last two days we have met many successful and outstanding dairy businesses, who are a credit to the industry. “Wales has the potential to be an exceptional rural economic powerhouse and there are plenty of opportunities for us to grasp in light of our exit from the European Union. The dairy industry has shown us some great examples of how we can do that, how to overcome the challenges posed by a volatile market and we can be proud to have such passionate and enthusiastic producers.” A Dairy Show wouldn’t be complete without a selection of delicious cheese and therefore the FUW showcased a Welsh Cheese Wedding Cake at its stand on the day. Speaking at the Welsh Dairy Show, FUW Carmarthen county executive officer assistant Nerys Edwards, whose time is also split between being actively involved in the running of the home farm and keeping a successful occasion cake business ‘Cacennau Moethus’, said: “The ‘Wedding Cheese Cake’ has in recent years become an increasingly popular option by bridal couples, combining both the concept of a beautiful tiered cake and the traditional cheese board. “In fact, according to experts the Wedding Cheese Cake is now chosen for one in ten weddings and as there are over 700 different types of cheese made in the UK, it’s no surprise that couples are opting for this type of ‘cake’.” A cheese wedding cake is a bespoke addition to a wedding feast and often has added edible decorations to suit the theme and colour scheme of any wedding, Mrs Edwards explained. The Wedding Cheese cake on display was sponsored by Caws Cenarth, a multi award winning artisan cheese maker, based at Fferm Glyneithinog, Lancych, Carmarthenshire. A family business established in 1987 by Gwynfor and Thelma Adams, and now run by their son Carwyn. They are a sixth generation of cheesemakers and are the oldest established producer of Welsh farmhouse Caerffili cheese. With over 10 varieties of artisan Caws Cenarth cheese to choose from, the possibilities are endless for a unique Welsh a Wedding Cheese Cake.
