17 Gorgeous Fall Wedding Cakes

Get inspired by these autumnal-themed designs.
by Andrea Fowler

Looking to tie the beauty of fall into your autumn wedding? Your cake is the perfect opportunity to bring a bit of fall charm into your reception. The biggest way to make a statement is with unique cake flavors, since taste and smell are the two senses that play the largest role in crafting a memorable dining experience. Delight your guests with seasonal flavors like pumpkin spice cake, maple icing glazes or salted caramel drizzles.

If you're a classic dessert person who prefers a good, old-fashioned vanilla or chocolate cake, opt for a few fall-themed décor elements or accents to give your tiers a seasonal style. Ask your baker to decorate the tiers with a few red, orange and yellow buttercream rosettes or craft fondant maple leaves. If you want the cake to look more natural, dress it up with fresh fall blooms, like sunflowers or dahlias.
