Fall Wedding Cakes

Autumn is a time of bold colors and rich flavors, and this gallery of fall wedding cakes highlights both. Couples can choose from a wide range of wedding cake designs and decadent tastes that will bring the full flavor of autumn to their celebration.

cake with fruit

Wedding Cake with Fruit

Fruit adds a unique touch to a buttercream wedding cake - apples and grapes are popular fall choices. For even more autumnal variety decorate your cake with miniature pumpkins, gourds, or whole nuts.

red fall cake

Bright Fall Cake

Fall colors don't have to be dull; accent your cake with bright ribbons, flowers, toppers, and other decorations that coordinate with your wedding colors. This adds interest to a cake that may have otherwise been frosted in basic brown or darker fall colors.

white and gold wedding cake

White and Gold Cake

All white cakes are perfect for any season, and a touch of gold blends well with other fall colors. Icing swirls are also reminiscent of falling leaves.

pastel cake

Pretty Pastel Cakes

Not every cake has to feature deep fall colors. Instead, focus on a hue which accents the season, like pale yellow or peach. The soft pastel tones are a pretty alternative to the traditionally dark seasonal colors.

daisy wedding cake

Wedding Cake with Daisies

Daisies in fall hues are a great accent to any wedding cake, and they can be used to add color to each tier. For more variety sprinkle in other flowers in matching colors.

orange autumn roses

Harvest Colored Roses

Roses are a quintessential wedding flower, and they are a beautiful choice for a fall cake topper in an orange hue. Frost the cake in cream instead of white to provide contrast to the white piping.

cake with sugar roses

Edible Flowers

Add edible sugar flowers and other details to your cake for a traditional design. Reds and golds are perfect colors to choose for a fall wedding cake, or choose a pale pink for a feminine, romantic touch.

exotic flower wedding cake

Exotic Flower Accents

Exotic fresh flowers can brighten up a fall wedding cake in somber tones. The more exotic the flowers, however, the fewer you should use so they have a powerful impact.

ferns on wedding cake

Classic Cake with Greenery

If you don't want to use leaves on the cake table, opt to decorate it with rich greenery such as ferns. Other popular fall options include stalks of grain, corn sheaves, and hay.

orange flower fondant cake

Orange Flower and Fondant Cake

Fondant icing is smooth and luxurious, and here it is perfectly accented with a bright pop of autumn orange. For a modern look, choose different types of flowers in the same color.

brown ribbon with flowers

Ribbon Accents

Ribbons are a simple addition to any cake, and rich chocolate ribbons add extra "pop" to a fall cake. The metallic finish of the middle ribbon adds a luxurious touch.

chocolate cake

Chocolate Autumn Cake

Chocolate enthusiasts can choose a cake with ganache or chocolate buttercream that also fits into the fall season. The rich chocolate blends perfectly with the season's color palate. A little greenery and white flowers are all the decoration you'll need.

blue pinecone cake

Vibrant Pinecone Cake

Plan a modern autumn wedding cake by having the decorator frost it in a vibrant blue. Brown pinecones add a rustic touch to this brightly colored cake.

cascading maple leaves

Cascading Leaves Cake

Maple leaves are a true sign of autumn. Instead of having a ribbon or floral arrangement cascading from your cake tiers, add a cascade of fondant or gum paste maple leaves.

polka dot cake

Contemporary Polka Dot Cake

Contemporary polka dots can fit into a fall theme when you do them in seasonal colors. This adds a bit of whimsy to your cake, even though your overall theme may be autumn.

brown vine cake

Vine Cake

The design on a fall cake doesn't have to be intricate. Instead, consider a simple vine design with elegant table decorations that will make the entire area stand out.

tree cake stand

Fall Wedding Cake Stand

Display your cake creatively with a tree-shaped wedding cake stand decorated with fall leaves. Other autumn-themed display options include miniature hay bales or iron cake stands. Having a beautifully displayed fall wedding cake brings your theme together at the reception.
