Our favourite 6 Wedding Cakes for Autumn / Winter

Wedding Cakes have become as popular as the wedding decor itself now in regards to colour themes, styles and flavours.  Your wedding cake will feature in a lot of wedding photographs, which you will have to look at for years to come. A lot of couples want a particular bespoke design, or a personalised cake topper added to make their wedding decor complete. Thus, you should take some time to choose the perfect wedding cake.

There is a few things to think about when looking for your perfect cake..

How many people are attending your wedding? = How big / how many tiers does the cake need?
Does your wedding have a traditional/Modern/ Alternative theme? = The appearance style of the cake
What flavour would you want your cake to be? The regular vanilla or chocolate flavour?
Fruit cake or sponge cake? cheese cakes? (If you are tempted by different flavours and can’t make up your mind, you can have different tiers in different flavours!)

The best idea to start with without asking all those questions to yourself (unless you already have a few answers) is to have a look through local cake suppliers via websites / Social Media / Wedding Fayres.

Below is a few that we personally love for this Autumn / Winter Season..

I love the traditional ‘Royal’ Approach to this cake, the use of Ivory and Antique gold really gives the quality look and style. The subtle detailing and the added icing flowers is a lovely added touch too!

The Confetti Cakery

This cake just reminds me of autumn! The woodland theme, the autumnal colours and the element of the foxes and the names carved into the ‘tree’ tier. All the colours and styles of each tier work really well and the colours are vibrant and eye catching.

The modern approach works quite well here, there is a mixture of different textures and a series of bright and simple colours. The edible gold leaf is another quality detail that makes it unique to other cakes of the same style.

The Swoon Bakery

This cake is a great example of how a simple white iced cake can be decorated to be effective with the use of textures, materials and subtle colours. I personally love the added detail of the fabric flowers and the ‘love’ wedding topper to give the cake a rustic woodland feel, perfect for the outdoor autumn wedding!

You cant have the winter without a bit of sparkle! The frosty and icy glistening mornings along with firework night and christmas parties. This cake is perfect for a winter wedding! The different textures on each tier, the colour variation of the blue and the detailing of the flowers on the side make this cake a lovely touch.

Everyone loves a wedding cake different from everyone else’s and this cake is exactly that. It is a simple but effective cake with small beaded detailing and a subtle touch of autumnal flowers added. What makes this cake super unique is the angles and shapes of the tiers, there is a great sense of balance and you can see considering the simple design, that a fair amount of thought has gone into making this cake.

So these are a few of our favourites wedding cake companies;
If you haven’t yet ordered your wedding cake, think about what style, and colour scheme would best suit your wedding. Shop around when it comes to buying your wedding cake, although many cake suppliers can do the simpler cake, they all have their own different decorative style, many also provide a sample test to make sure it also tastes perfect.
