While we all love summer, we have to admit to being just a little excited about all those cosy autumnal weddings. Bring on the dreamy hues of red, orange, yellow and gold, along with glamorous jewelled shades and mossy greens. Your cake offers the perfect opportunity to display your chosen style and colour scheme. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite autumn wedding cakes.
Introducing Autumn Shades
Sugar flowers and creative icing add the perfect colours to these designs.
Intricate sugar flowers introduce autumnal shades to this classic white, stacked cake.

Un-iced and baring all, we’re rather fond of the naked cake all year round.
The naked cake is a lovely choice for autumn, bringing the outside in and adding an abundance of autumnal fruits.

A semi-naked cake is a little less rustic and oh-so pretty.
