How are enchanted forest themed wedding cakes different from others? They evoke emotions of a fairytale woodland with their designs.

So, let’s take a look at the enchanted forest cakes for summer, spring, winter and fall!
Enchanted Forest Themed Wedding Cakes for Summer
Everything about your wedding is inspired by nature. Keep it colorful — enchanted forest themed wedding cakes may be embellished with flowers, summery ferns, vines, or fruits. You can glam them up with delicate touches of edible gold foil. Or you can watercolor a tier or two. Check out these incredible enchanted forest themed wedding cakes, a perfect fit for a summer woodland wedding.
Delicate Spring Cake Decorating for a Forest Theme
For a Spring enchanted forest wedding these delicate confections range from soft pastel colors to vibrant hues. Romantic brides may add sugar butterflies to their woodland wedding cake, gum-paste buds or flowers. After all, it’s the season where everything blooms, let the spring bloom on your cake.
Go with fresh and fruity flavor combinations like a blackberry lavender cake or a delicious raspberry vanilla filled drip cake. Or forget the enchanted forest themed wedding cakes altogether and delight your guests with small lemon lava cakes with mint leaves and strawberries.
Jaw-Dropping Enchanted Forest Cakes for the Fall
There’s a kind of spell that autumn casts on a forest. A certain peace and tranquility that is reflected on these enchanted forest themed wedding cakes. An abundance of half-naked or half-dressed, buttercream and drip cakes, metallics and detailed piping and decorative elements like oak leaves, woodgrain, and woodland foliage.
Some enchanted forest themed wedding cakes may even go “naked,” decorated only with colorful autumn berries. This is just a tiered cake without any icing and you can see the filling in between those delicious layers.
Of course, nobody would say no to a chocolate ganache cake topped with berries, amiright?
Amazing Winter Forest Themed Cake Ideas
Mountains, snow, forest creatures, birch trees and all things winter…they all relate to a winter woodland wedding, and there are some gorgeous cakes to go with that! From drip cakes decorated with moody-colored flowers to cakes that look like tree bark with the couple’s initials carved on the icing, there is something for all winter-loving couples. You can even set your cake on top of a piece of wood to add to the rustic feel.
Enter the buttercream. This mixture of butter and powdered sugar holds its shape during the cold winter months. Peppermint and double-chocolate, spiced pear, brown butter spice with cream cheese & maple buttercream were some of the favorite winter enchanted forest themed wedding cakes last year. What flavors will you choose this year?
