If you're hosting a fall wedding, choose a wedding-cake design that reflects the beauty and bounty of the season. Here are six of our favorite wedding confections perfect for an autumnal affair.
Fall Leaves (above): Connecticut-based cake designer Erica OBrien created these incredibly realistic-looking falling leaves by collecting real leaves and copying them onto edible wafer paper with an edible ink printer.

Seasonal Fruit: "Naked" or partially frosted wedding cakes continue to be all the rage. We love this fall-inspired version decorated with fresh, in-season fruit like pears and figs.

Flower Appliqués: For a more modern take on sugar flowers, decorate your cake tiers with hand-painted floral appliqués.

Chocolate Ganache: Have your cake designer create chocolate-ganache tiers for a dramatic look, then embellish the confection with a bounty of edible fall decorations like pomegranates, pears, and pumpkins made out of modeling chocolate.
