49 Fall Wedding Cakes We're Obsessed With
With its cool, crisp air and warm, fiery color scheme, autumn is a lovely time to get married. If you're planning to tie the knot sometime during this popular season, we recommend serving guests an autumnal wedding cake. With an abundance of festive motifs and seasonal flavors, your fall dessert can be both beautiful and tasty.
Are you a chocoholic? Obsessed with all things pumpkin spice? Truly give guests a taste of the season with a celebratory confection. Other popular autumn flavors include caramel, nut, and maple, which are all delicious cake options and are sure to be popular amongst attendees. Add seasonal fruits like apples and pears to the mix to ensure your dessert offers an extra dose of seasonal flavor.
When it comes to design, the possibilities are also plentiful. A safe bet is to go with fall colors like red, yellow, orange, and green. Gold is another great pick, as are metallics in general. Overall, you can't go wrong with deep, warm, or shimmering shades. Use in-season flowers or autumn foliage to spruce up your tiers or use molds or edible paint to recreate them.
For visual inspiration, look no further. We've found a wide range of autumnal desserts that you can model your own confection after. There are tons of options for a rustic wedding, but also many for a formal celebration. Naked cakes, small cakes, colorful cakes—the list goes on as far as what we've included. This incredible Magpies Bakery carrot cake (with berries, acorns, feathers, and more) is just the start.
