Inspiring Autumn Wedding Cakes

Calling all those with a sweet tooth as this week we take a look at some of the most tantalisingly tempting wedding cakes with an autumnal theme!

Our fabulous wedding planners at Manor By The Lake see their fair share of wedding cake creations, so here are just some of the ideas that they love for autumn weddings.



Traditional with a Twist

If you want to stick to a traditional tiered, white iced wedding cake, then there are plenty of creative touches you can add for an autumnal twist.

Why not drape your tiers with delicately crafted fondant icing leaves to create an autumnal trail from top to bottom? We love this version that includes tiny edible acorns – you could also achieve a similar effect with icing berries and twigs.

If you dare to go a little further off-piste, we love this traditional style square cake that’s been designed to appear as if it’s positioned in a barrel of apples. This is definitely a design to get people talking!


Dark and Gold

If your autumnal wedding palette includes rich purples and plum colours with gold accents then this could be the exact style of cake to match your theme. A rich chocolate cake is seen in all its glory with unctuous oozing chocolate icing seeping from each layer.

A scattering of blackberries and figs adds to the rich colour palette and will provide some welcome palate cleansing from all that rich cocoa. As a final touch, two majestic gold deer represent the couple standing proudly on top of this stunning creation.


Delicately Dripped

The dripped cake is still proving extremely popular with brides and grooms and is quite an artistic and decadent style. We love this single layer cake with its generous toffee topping dripping gracefully down the sides.

The mouthwatering heap of fruit and leaves is a clever nod to the season, again using berries for a rich purple accent colour as a wonderful contrast to the white icing.


Pumpkin Tastic

For an October wedding and particularly any date around Halloween, this pumpkin cake would be amazing. Creating the illusion of a stack of real pumpkins, we love the shape and colour of this quirky design and think it would create the most dramatic centrepiece to a wedding reception this autumn.


Marvellous Macaroons 

Finally, if you’re looking for a complete alternative to a traditional wedding cake, why not give your guests dainty macaroons in autumnal colours? We love these gift bags of orange and chocolate macaroons that could also double up as wedding favours as well as making a wonderful sweet treat to serve with after-dinner coffee.


So there you have our favourite options for your autumn inspired wedding cake. At Manor By The Lake, we love everything about autumn weddings and would love to help you plan yours.  Please give our fabulous wedding planners a call today on 01242 245 071 or email to book a private tour of our stunning country Manor.
