Fall Theme Wedding Cakes

If you're planning a fall theme wedding, cakes might seem like the least of your problems.

Yet it's usually those little ideas that inspire the best memories of your big day, so they shouldn't be overlooked. fall theme wedding cakes

The first bite of cake you take with your future spouse will be immortalized by your wedding photographer, as well as your guests. It should be delicious, but it should also fit your style and the theme of your wedding.

For a fall theme wedding, cakes can be used to show off your style. From football themes for sporty couples to a fantasy of gilded leaves and golden apples for a swanky reception, it's all about finding the cake that fits you and your wedding. The season offers plenty of inspiration for a unique cake your guests will rave about, and that you'll remember for a lifetime.

Here are a few fall wedding cake ideas to get you started:

  • Changing Leaves: One of the most popular themes for autumn wedding cakes uses the colors of the changing leaves to reinforce a fall theme wedding. Cakes are frosted in shades of red or green and gold, with edible fondant leaves or leaf-shaped designs. Some couples go as far as making edible tree branches or using a small bonsai-style tree as a cake topper.

  • Holiday Themes: Autumn is home to many holidays, including the start of the Christmas season. Holiday-themed weddings are very popular for fall, which often include holiday-inspired wedding cakes. Try fun shapes like a bat or black cat for Halloween, or a turkey-shaped groom's cake at Thanksgiving. Trees, cornucopias, and apples are popular shapes for fall theme wedding cakes.

  • Seasonal Flavors: One way to bring some seasonal flair into any wedding theme is to experiment with flavors associated with that season. For autumn wedding cakes, this includes rich harvest flavors like nuts, berries and fruits. Try adding a layer of hearty apple or cranberry filling to your cake, or alternating tiers of standard and seasonal flavors.

  • These ideas barely scratch the surface of what's possible for autumn wedding cakes. Shop around for a skilled and imaginative baker, and they'll likely have albums full of fall theme wedding cakes they can recreate for you.
