Wedding Cake Ideas for Your Fall Wedding

If you are having a wedding in autumn you may want to consider a wedding cake that fits the season. Even if your wedding isn’t a fall-themed event, you may still want to have a wedding cake that reflects the season.

As you decide what you want your fall-themed wedding cake to look like, you may want to consider one of these three themes for your special cake.

Pumpkin Theme
Woodsy Theme
Fall Foliage Theme

The pumpkin is a quintessential fall symbol. As shown below, there are many ways you can incorporate pumpkins in to your wedding cake from making them the centerpiece of the cake to having them serve as a cake topper. Pumpkin-themed cakes often include fall foliage as well.

If you don’t want a wedding cake that “screams” fall but yet want one that fits the season, you might want to consider a woodsy-themed wedding cake. A woodsy-themed cake uses natural elements such as various ferns and acorns along with colorful leaves. As you can see in the first cake on the second row, there are fall leaves with acorns along with woodsy elements. And while this cake definitely works perfectly for autumn, it is a subtle approach to the season.

  1. Could you please tell me how you made the letters fall in love ? The one with the leaves and pumpkins. Is the lettering fondant? A friend of my daughter wants this for her wedding cake but I’m clueless on how to do the writing. Thank you for your help.
