No doubt about it, fall is one of the best times to hold a wedding. If you are planning a fall wedding, be sure to make the most of the season. Bear in mind that your wedding cake is one of the most important details of your wedding and must be chosen with the utmost care. It should not only look good, it should taste great. If you love everything about fall and want to incorporate the season into your cake, here’s how to do it.
Incorporating Fall into Your Wedding Cake

Try a Unique Shape
Nowhere is it written in stone that your wedding cake must be white. Sure, your friend’s white wedding cake might have looked gorgeous, but why choose the same design when there are so many options to choose from? You can choose a cake shaped like a pumpkin, a petal, or even a hexagon. Square cakes may have a sleek and modern look, but they are most definitely not unique.
Add Fall Flowers, Leaves, and Elements
If there’s one thing a wedding can never have enough of, it is flowers. The more flowers you use, the better a venue looks. You can integrate flowers like Japanese anemones, camellias, asters, and perennial sunflowers into your cake. You can also add elements like acorns, leaves, and other fall elements. Request your baker to make flowers that resemble those on your bouquet. Some bakers ‘paint’ flowers on cakes using edible dye.

Choose Fall Flavors
Optimize the season by choosing a cake with a distinctive fall flavor. For example, you can select a spice cake with blackberry filling or a pumpkin cake with whipped cream frosting. If you prefer a lighter cake that still brings fall to mind, choose almond lemon cake with lemon frosting.
Pick a Fall-Inspired Color
When it comes to creating a fall-inspired cake, color is everything. Pick fall-inspired hues like red, yellow, brown, and burnt orange – you can never go wrong with these colors. However, try not to go overboard by mixing too many fall colors. You can use one color on the cake and others on the decorations.
