Although we don’t want to think about summer coming to an end, a lot of couples are in the midst of planning their fall wedding which are quickly approaching. If you haven’t decided on a cake, we have some guidelines to help you narrow down your decision.
If you’re planning an autumn-themed wedding, it’s time to start thinking about a wedding cake that evokes the changing of the seasons.
Read on for a few ideas for fall-themed wedding cakes that will help you achieve a fall theme through a decadent dessert.
Less Can Be More
Less can often be more when you are planning a heavily themed wedding cake. Resist the urge to go all out with abundant red foliage, pumpkins galore and a scarecrow on top. Instead, pick one or two fall-inspired elements to work into your cake instead.
Colors of the Season
Orange is the quintessential fall color, along with reds and yellows. Consider adding fresh orange flowers or fresh fall “leaves” on top of the cake to provide elegant, fall-inspired accents.
If you prefer a more classic palette, you can still incorporate fall elements into your cake design. Burlap, twine and a tree-bark inspired cake topper lend rustic, country-style elements to a classic cake.
Keep it Fresh
Fresh fall fruits – think apples, figs and berries – provide flavor nuances and fall flair to delicious wedding cakes. Try thinking outside the box and pairing the fruit with chocolate ganache or a naked cake.
