Ideas for autumn-themed wedding cakes

Autumn-themed wedding cake displayed on a log Q – We’re having an autumn-themed wedding and would love to incorporate the time of year into our cake. Do you have any ideas?

"Autumn provides a wide variety of rich tones from gold and bronze through to burnt orange and rich, vibrant reds. When combined with rustic elements, it creates a warm, welcoming feel for you and your guests.

"Surprise your friends and family with delicious seasonal flavours such as spiced chocolate, carrot, chocolate with a hint of ginger ganache buttercream filling or a warm cinnamon coffee and walnut cake.

"Use flowers such as garden roses, anemone and calla lilies in a deep plum and combine them with a mixture of red, bronze and gold berries or mini pumpkins and little crab apples.

"Cascades of autumn leaves also look stunning with the addition of berries and twigs. These can be natural or coloured in bronze or gold to add interest.

"Make the most of texture with wood and bark effects and combine them with smooth tiers painted in a shimmering bronze finished with buttercream.

"Display the cake on a log and surround it with a mixture of seasonal pumpkins, leaves, berries and woodland creatures."
