Fall has almost arrived – can you feel it in the air? If you’re getting married during the fall season, you may be in search for inspiration for rustic wedding cakes. Many brides hold their fall wedding at a barn, cabin, farm, or outdoor location – perfect for displaying rustic wedding cakes. With that being said, let’s dig our forks into some of the best looking cakes for fall weddings.
We are going to start off with cakes that are simple and sweet and end with more elaborate cakes that have a lot of design and texture. Choose to go with the cake that fits your style and taste the most – you’re guests will love whichever you choose.
One – Simple & Classic
This rustic wedding cake is designed to resemble a naked birch tree with light greenery. Place the cake on top of a barrel for that classic rustic charm.
Two – A Touch of Wilderness
Displaying the same birch tree cake pattern, this cake added a touch of wilderness by adding antlers, pine cones, dried fruit, and forest greens. Using a tree wood cake holder adds that rustic feel to your display.
Three – Ruffles & Burlap
A simple two palate color scheme mixed with detailed ruffles and burlap flowers. Use a wooden base or wooden table to display the cake and top with a wooden cake topper if desired. Love truly is sweet.
Four – Sweet Vintage
This beautiful wedding cake offers a soft rustic vintage feel, displayed on top of a tree wood stand. Vintage decor also surrounds the cake tying the overall theme of the wedding together.
Five – Golden Forest
Gold elements were added to the overall decor displayed on this cake. Golden leaves. antlers, and missing tree bark will bring the forest to life for you and your guests.
Six – Queen of the Forest
This delightful cake displays an elegance like no other – woodsy and charming all at the same time. Choose a mix of fall flowers, twigs, and forest greenery. Ask your florist or cake designer to incorporate them into a ring around each layer like above.
Seven – Rustic Cupcakes & Mini Cake
If you’re looking to do something different than the traditional wedding cake – do a cupcake tier and mini cake! The mini cake is made just for the couple of honor and the cupcakes are for the guests (however, feel free to taste a cupcake or two for yourself!) Dress up the cake stand with rustic elements, add little signs to the top of each one, or add fall leaf designs to the frosting. Your options are endless.
Eight – Delicious & Magical
By far one of the tastiest looking rustic wedding cakes we have seen. Apple cider donuts, white sugar glaze, and woodland elements – what more could you ask for? We want to dig into this cake right now!
Nine – Chocolate Delight
This classic dark tree bark frosting mixed with the couple’s initials is such a great idea! Top the cake with your favorite fall florals and choose a flavor you love – darker cakes on the outside typically means chocolate flavored – but it’s your wedding, choose what you enjoy!
Ten – Woodland Wonderland
This cake is pulling all the stops. Displaying a wide tree wooden base, pine-cones, pine branches, ferns, candles, and more – this cake is a show stopper for sure.
With many different types of rustic wedding cakes to choose from, you will never run out of creative options! Out of the 10 wedding cakes above, which was your favorite? We would love to know!
