Beautiful Fall Wedding Cakes

Fall 2018 is in full swing and those of you planning weddings in fall of 2019 may very well be searching for a beautiful wedding cake design.

One of my favorite features of the fall season are the vibrant colors: deep reds, wine, plums, burnt orange and deeper yellows - even a toned down green makes its way into the color palette.

While preparing for this blog post, I came across several photos of past work that I want to share. Each have their own story. Most of all, each are unique wedding cake designs that were created for each couple.

Fall Sugar Flowers Wedding Cake:

When I first met with Tiffany, she told me: "I know we're having a small wedding, but I just really want a beautiful cake with sugar flowers and leaves." Tiffany and her husband had approximately 15 people at their wedding. Tiffany loves the look of cascading flowers on a cake, but wasn't sure if this would work with a single tier cake. I'm sure you'll agree that it did! To add some real 'wow,' the sugar flowers cover most of the top of the cake, and then flow down are around to the side. We incorporated the following sugar flowers: peonies, lisianthus, roses, calla lilies and hit the fall high note with fall sugar leaves. When Tiffany saw her cake, she exclaimed "It's everything that I wanted it to be!" We are so thrilled!!

Sugar Flowers Cascade with Scrolls Wedding Cake

This wedding cake was created for a vineyard wedding in South Jersey. What I love most about this cake is the scroll work. Typically, you migtht see scroll work as a border around the cake tiers. However, to keep it unique, we took the scroll work and added it around the cascade to enhance the sugar flowers for a very interesting design element. .  The scroll work design is taken from our clients' wedding invitation.

Lastly, this month is the anniversary month for Kristine & Alfredo, and I'm happy to feature their wedding cake here. Kristine loved our wedding cake designs for their creativity and wanted a creative, fall wedding cake for her October wedding. During our cake tasting, we discussed a creative technique in design that she loved - hand painting! With nothing more than some general parameters to work with, Kristine left the cake design in our hands. The one request she did have was to include something that showed their love of their fur babies. Can you spot the paw prints here? This design features hand painted and highlighted acanthus leaves and fall sugar leaves. The elongated cake tiers helps add that 'falling from a tree' feeling. Happy anniversary Kris & Alfredo!
