Common elements for a fall wedding cake include the use of warm autumn colors, such as gold, orange and burgundy, and seasonal flowers or branches. Another idea is to use popular fall flavors, such as pumpkin or apple, in the cake.
Autumn colors are sometimes used to color the whole cake. This is often done by dying the outer fondant layer in orange, gold or any other color. Other times, autumn colors are used as accents by decorating the cake with fall flowers.
Other nature elements are often used on fall wedding cakes. These include using either real or candy branches to decorate the cake or adding small gourds or fall leaves.
