Get Ready for Fall with These Amazing Autumn-Inspired Cakes!


With the the first day of fall rapidly approaching (this year it lands on September 22!), it's time to put away our favorite summer wedding details and jump straight into harvest-inspired accents. From your dress to your décor, there are endless ways to incorporate aspects of the cool season into your wedding day. But our absolutely favorite place to start adding autumnal details into your wedding day is the tastiest one: your wedding cake!

If you're tying the knot between September 22 and December 20, serve a cake that's bursting with autumnal flavors, like sweet apple or comforting pumpkin. Your guests will love these tasty picks, and your baker will be able to use completely fresh ingredients to achieve the flavor. If you prefer a more classic cake, consider having your baker adorn your dessert with fall details, like burnt orange and red leafs, fresh fruits, or seasonal flowers, like mums and asters.

We tapped bakers from across the country to find the prettiest fall-inspired cakes. Whether you're hosting the traditional fall wedding or looking to add just a few seasonal touches to your day, you'll love these confections.
