If you’re planning a wedding and have your heart set on getting hitched in the fall, you have a wonderful opportunity to choose a seasonal cake flavor that is festive and delicious. It’s probably too late to pick a wedding cake flavor for this year (unless you’re eloping), but I’ve got a list of ideas for you to consider for next year. If any of these sound appealing, you’ll want to meet with your wedding cake baker to see if they are able to accommodate your flavor wishes.
You could easily combine several of these tasty choices into one cake, doing each layer a different flavor. Or, if you’d rather do something like cupcakes instead, there are surely options for using these flavors for those too. Let these be your inspirational fall wedding cake flavor guide, but allow for variations to make them more personal. Ask your baker how to turn your favorite fall flavors into the wedding cake of your dreams.
Now, get ready to drool because these are going to make your mouth water big time.
