Popular Autumnal Wedding Cake Styles

What are the most popular autumn wedding cake designs? Well, we've asked some of our lovely Recommended Suppliers this question and this is what they've said! Wedding cakes are often used as decor by couples who want their cake to reflect the theme, colour scheme, and season of their day! This is why seasonal colour palettes are essential. The most popular autumnal cakes include shades of orange, gold, brown, silver, green, and red, which are normally brought through sugar paste or decorative florals. Dried flowers are a great addition to an autumn cake, savouring what’s left of summer and adding that perfect boho style. Autumn brings a wilder feel that embraces natural and textured designs. Suppliers are also seeing a lot of dried fruit, and nature-inspired designs that reference animals, pumpkins, and more! Recommended Supplier, Cakes by Tasha, is seeing a lot more retro wedding cakes. Sustainable choices for decorations are also on the rise, including sugar and wafer paper flowers.

Top Tips on Coordinating Your Wedding Cake With Your Theme

Your consultation with your wedding cake maker is essential in making sure you can get what you want and your supplier can deliver with confidence. This is your chance to get to know each other and build trust. Go into colour schemes, bring along samples or photos of things you've already sorted for your wedding (your venue, stationery and outfits etc.). This way, you can also add personal touches as well! If you got engaged in Italy, maybe some lemon slices would be a great decor idea and so on. Recommended Supplier, Peak Patisserie, recommends not leaving anything unturned. You should pick a cake designer that you feel you relate to and can build a relationship with to ensure they truly get the vision for your day to create your dream cake.

What wedding cake suppliers wish you knew about cakes

Recommended Supplier, Bella and Bean Cake Design, is a firm believer in our ethos! Your day, Your way! Your cake should be a reflection of you - your day, your style, your personality and something you really are excited to eat. So pick flavours you love. If you love colour, go wild with it, wedding cakes don’t have to be white. They also don’t have to be smooth and round - if you like the contemporary, have you considered a square or playing with texture - or spacers which add illusion to the overall look. Also, try not to pick a designer solely on price! Whilst budget is a major factor, couples should also take time to study and research whether the style and personality of the supplier fit with the vision. Hours of detail and planning go into making a dream wedding cake, it's never just eggs, butter and flour!
