Whilst here in NZ I am looking forward to Spring, Autumn is just around the corner for most of you – and I am quite envious! So far I have shared with you 5 of the prettiest palettes and 5 beautiful bouquets, and I am keeping with the Fall theme for this week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons. Today it is time to look at 5 ideas for creating the most amazing Autumn wedding cakes! These ideas will guarantee your wedding cake is memorable, yummy and just perfect for the season!
1. Decorate in Autumn Colours
OK, so this may be an obvious one, but nothing says Autumn quite like the colour of leaves as they fall. Ice, paint or drape in flowers using shades of deep red and burnt orange, and your wedding cake is guaranteed to have a definite autumnal feel…..

2. Choose Chocolate
Perhaps it is the colour, or the comfort that a slice of gooey, moist chocolate cake brings; but either way there is something about the use of chocolate for a wedding cake that gives it a distinctly fall look. Plus, brown cakes look so much prettier than they sound! Iced or naked, who doesn’t LOVE chocolate??…..
3. Decorate with Seasonal Produce
Berries, figs, acorns, whichever you prefer! By making your wedding cake topper beautiful seasonal fruits or nuts, you’ll not only save a few pennies, but also create a cake that is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach!…..
4. Yummy Wedding Cake Alternatives
Or how about forgoing the traditional wedding cake in favour of something a little different? Like some of those yummy comfort foods we so associate with the colder seasons? Think berry pies, shortbread sandwiches or cookies….. you could even use grandma’s of a family favourite recipe for a real personal touch!
Or, if you have a more savoury tooth how about a delicious cheese truckle tower?…..
5. Autumn Dessert Tables
Or heck, how about both? You only get married once after all! With a dessert table you can share ALL of your favourite sweet (or savoury) bites with your friends, family and loved ones. Or make it a DIY affair by asking guests to contribute their signature sweet – they’ll love the thought of helping with your big day and just imagine the display of desserts…..
…..hmm I think my mouth may actually be watering! Wedding or not, this reminds me of another reason why I love Autumn – the comfort food.
To help you recreate the look I have found you a few essentials for a fabulous fall dessert table and amazing wedding cake…..
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
