A Year of the First Great bridal shower gift … – #Bride party gift # of #A #First #Year
There are many wonderful colors and motifs which a bride can choose to incorporate into her autumn wedding. From whimsical to nature inspired to classic, the options are plentiful. These are some ideas for the most beautiful fall wedding cake designs.
As one of the showpieces of your reception, your wedding cake should definitely make a statement. It should also tie into the theme and overall style of the rest of your wedding. Let's say that your taste is mod and playful. Design a whimsical cake frosted in brown fondant and decorated with fun circles in different sizes. A great look would be to use primarily fall colors like orange, sunflower yellow, and russet, but then throw in one surprise color like fuchsia or lime green for contrast. The same colors can be pulled into the wedding attire, right down to colorful custom bridal jewelry.
Without a doubt, when people think of fall, they think of pumpkins. Why not create a festive autumnal pumpkin cake? If your wedding is small, an oversized cake designed to look like a real pumpkin would be a super fun surprise at the reception. Make it really realistic, right down to the stem and some curly green tendrils falling down one side. When a larger cake is needed to feed all the guests, the pumpkin cake would be a great groom's cake. Since the groom's cake is usually made with a sense of humor, it would be fun to make a jack o'lantern cake ... maybe with the groom's face "carved" into it! Choose a cake flavor such as a spice cake that complements the pumpkin design.
A falling leaf motif would be lovely for a fall wedding cake. Frost the cake in a cream color and have scattered fondant or gum paste "leaves" in autumnal hues tumbling down the sides of each tier. You could create a minimalist design with leaves cascading down just one side of the cake, or let the fall leaves swirl and tumble all around the cake. This would be a very pretty design for any autumn wedding, whether you are using a leaf motif throughout the wedding or not.
For a very elegant fall wedding cake, choose one with stacked octagonal layers. Wrap a laser cut baroque motif around the base of each tier as if it is "growing". A metallic gold finish for the baroque design would be the height of style, perfect for a black tie wedding complete with a ballgown and ornate custom bridal jewelry. Under the gold design, frost the cake in smooth fondant in a rich color such as burgundy or a velvety moss green. A customized matte gold monogram cake topper would be the perfect decoration to perch atop such an elegant dessert.
Flowers are always pretty for cakes. In the autumn, choose either fresh or sugar flowers in an array of warm colors. It can be a casual assortment of fall blossoms like mini sunflowers and yellow mums, or opt for a very chic arrangement of rust colored orchids with stripes and spots. Natural elements like berries and sprigs of wheat would be a charming addition to a fall harvest theme cake. You could even add details like marzipan acorns for a fun surprise to your fabulous fall wedding cake.
