Fall Wedding Cake Decorations
Take inspiration from the season for fall cake decorations. Fall foliage, harvest fruits, grains, pumpkins and gourds can all be incorporated into your wedding cake design. A cake covered in bright marzipan leaves is an obvious choice. You can also decorate your fall wedding cake with miniature pumpkins, red apples or pears.
A unique idea is using sprigs of wheat (real or made from gum paste) to decorate the layers of your wedding cake. Marzipan ferns climbing up the tiers of the cake or meringue mushrooms and marzipan branches add a playful woodland touch to your fall wedding cake.
Flowers in autumn hues like sunflowers, orange roses, marigolds, zinnias can be placed on your fall wedding cake using fresh blooms or flowers made from gum paste or fondant. Floral berries can also be used to invoke the autumn spirit.
You can also use real fruit to decorate your fall wedding cake. Grapes dipped in caramel or covered with superfine sugar can cascade down the tiers of the cake or be placed in bunches at key points all over the cake. Small in size, lady apples or crab apples can also be used to decorate wedding cakes. If you’re doing a Halloween themed wedding, consider decorating your cake with caramel dipped lady apples.
