An Autumn wedding cake

The Autumn Fall is nearly here.  I love this time of the year with all its´lovely warm colours and the beauty of its landscapes. I think it is a very romantic time of the year to get married, so if you are thinking of doing so, think about giving your weeding day an autumn flair.

If you are thinking of having a wedding cake on the day, why not surprise your guests with an Autumn wedding cake.  Here are some ideas that might help you achieve the desired effect.

Autumn colours are lovely and they blend nicely together, so don´t hesitate to use them in your wedding cake.  If your cake has got flowers on it, use colours such as orange, yellow, brown or even ochre. The flowers can be part of the cake´s design or you might even choose to have natural flowers as part of the decoration.  I am very fond of having natural elements, such as fresh flowers, because I believe it gives the whole thing a very romantic touch.

I think the photos with whole fresh apples or other Autumn items such as leaves, pine cones, berries… are very inspiring.  And the idea of displaying the cake on a wooden trunk is just great ! Just have a look at how lovely those little birds perched on the cake look.

The decoration of the table where you are going to display the cake is also important. Not only does the cake have to have an Autumn feeling about it but you can also display flowers and jars with tomatoes, berries etc around it, for an Autumn scenario.  In one of the photos I have seen gazing through different wedding blogs, my attention was drawn to a cake with orange flowers displayed on old leather books. They matched perfectly and  you felt it was really cosy !

Another cute idea is having an old wooden frame with a picture of a little forest animal, on the top of the wedding cake instead of the classic bride and groom little figures.

The sweet desserts and cake table

It is nowadays the fashion to have a centre table where your guests can have access to all those delicious cakes, cup cakes, homemade cookies… If it is done stylishly and with taste it can be an attractive element of your banquet decoration and why not ? a colourful and sweet touch.

You will have to bear in mind where you are going to place the table so that it looks attractive and accessible to everyone. Depending on the style of your wedding you will have to carefully choose the crockery. If it is a vintage wedding you might want to use pieces of fine china or carved crystal glass plates and trays, but if it is a more whimsical wedding you might choose to have trays in bright colours and different shapes.

It will all depend on the style of wedding you have in mind. The food can also be chosen to match the colours of the wedding. One final hint, remember to attach cards with the name of each cake etc to the trays. There is loads of ways to do this, all very attractive.

Original Wedding Cakes

We are all anxious, the bride and groom are going to cut the wedding cake and all our eyes are fixed on it. It is delicious, original and fits in well with the décor.

This is what we want our guests to be thinking in that precise moment. Wedding cakes nowadays are real works of art and they must reflect the tastes and personality of the bride and groom.
In a recent article I read how a professional, specialized in designing wedding cakes, was asked to design a cake in the shape of the arch of triumph, in Barcelona, because that is the place where the couple got engaged. So as you can see there are no limits to the imagination and creativity in this field.

We have chosen some cake designs that we think are really creative according to the colours and style of the wedding. You are sure to find many inspiring ideas amongst this selection.

Just have a look at this turquoise cake. Ideal fdor a wedding by the sea. And if you like something jovial and colourful just take a look at this next cake.

Tartas nupciales

If you are thinking of a Spring or an Autumn wedding these two cakes are perfect. They have got such lovely colours and the work on them is so detailed you just can´t avoid falling in love with every single one of them.

Are you looking for colours that match your wedding colours? Here is a selection of cakes from burgundy to yellows or the more sophisticated black and whites. As you can appreciate on them floral motifs are all the latest.

Now just relax and enjoy your piece of cake. Cheers!
