The foliage in autumn is alone a fabulous source of inspiration for those who are having a fall wedding cake but don’t know what to use for the decoration. We love fall nuptials because they are cheerful, fun and commodious. Besides this, the colors and the flavors are extremely spicy and romantic.

The changing leaves of fall are the ideal decorative items for an autumnal cake. There is no better ornament for a fall-inspired cake than leaves. The palette of colors for fall’s foliage is rich and very seductive. It would be impossible not to find something to suit your dreams. Deep rich reds, burnt oranges, deep golds, chocolate browns, hunter greens, bronzes and bright yellows – these are some of the most popular colors you can find in a fall landscape. The flavor can be anything between chocolate, spiced rum and vanilla. Decorate the cake and the table with autumn foliage and add a few pumpkins with candles inside for a more romantic special look.
Use real leaves or make your own out of paper or other fabric you like. There are many ways to enhance the autumnal nature of your cake with leaves. Add a few flowers too to make the cake look even more elegant and feminine. Zinnias, gerberas, traditional roses, chrysanthemums or dahlias – these are popular choices in this sense.
The wedding cake is an optical high – light at every wedding party. Just like other elements in the wedding, the cake must match the theme and style of the wedding.
Because of the beautiful colors and cozy and romantic atmosphere that is always created at a wedding, many couples choose to celebrate their wedding in autumn. If you are one of these couples and you’re going to have an autumn wedding, here we have some ideas and tips for a unique wedding cake.
For your autumn wedding cake let yourself be inspired by the beautiful colors, flowers and also by the incredible flavors of autumn. Chose a wedding cake that represents you, your style and personality but let nature be your guide. Be inspired by all the beautiful elements of the nature in autumn. Your autumn wedding cake should have at least one of the colors representative for autumn (marigold, red, brown, bronze, yellow, burnt orange, deep pink). If you would like a more traditional and sober wedding cake and you are afraid that a colored cake will not match your wedding theme and style, chose a white cake and decorate it with elements of these colors.
It is also a great idea to decorate the wedding cake with romantic wedding flowers like autumn lilies, mums, zinnias and asters. If you do not want to have flowers on your wedding cake use other autumn related elements of decoration. You could choose to decorate your autumn wedding cake with colored leaves. Use real leaves or silk leaves or even leaves made out of modeling chocolate. Or you could decorate your wedding cake with small ornamental pumpkins and squashes (real ones or ones made out of chocolate or marzipan).
As autumn is the season for harvesting you could incorporate elements reminding of this event. Use wheat grass on your wedding cake topper. Or you could tuck some wheat grass on ribbons and put them at the base of your cake. Use apples (real apple or ones made out of sugar, marzipan, chocolate etc.) when decorating your autumn wedding cake.
There is a lot of criteria which should be considered so as to decide how to look your autumn wedding cake. For example you could choose a wedding cake depending on the location of the wedding. If you will have a vineyard wedding, decorate your autumn cake with grapes. Grapes are representative as well as for vineyards and as for autumns. If you are going to have a Thanksgiving wedding, chose a turkey shaped wedding cake or a pilgrim cake. For a Halloween wedding chose a cake looking like a jack – o – lantern or maybe one shaped like a witch or something scary and spooky – this idea is only suitable for a more unconventional bride who does not give much on traditional cakes. If you just want a cake representative for autumn, chose a wedding cake shaped like a leaf.
It is also very important that your wedding cake tastes like autumn. You should choose a spiced or chocolate spiced wedding cake, but nothing reminds more of autumn the apples, pecan and pumpkin – that’s why you should choose an autumn wedding cake with one of these delicious flavors.11
