Orange And Burnt Orange Wedding Cakes For Fall Weddings

Orange, burgundy, and burnt orange wedding cakes are popular colors for fall weddings. I did a lot of cakes for rustic fall weddings, and many of the brides wanted to have an elegant wedding cake that matched their fall wedding color schemes.

These are some of the wedding cakes that matched the fall wedding aesthetic, ranging from casual to sophisticated, and using a lot of shades of orange.

This rustic wedding cake had wafer paper leaves in a cascade on the tiers. Since these are printed on wafer paper they’re thin like real leaves, and they look realistic because I used photos of real leaves to make them.

Fall wedding cake with callas.

This square tiered wedding cake had real satin ribbons on each tier, and gumpaste callas in burgundy and orange tones.

If you want to use satin ribbon on a buttercream cake, you can rub them with crisco so that they’ll absorb the oil evenly before putting them on the icing. That keeps them from absorbing the oils from the icing in a splotchy pattern.
