Forget the predictable lemon poppyseed or strawberry cake. If you’re planning a fall fête, take advantage of the caramely, spicy, gooey, deep autumnal flavors that warm our hearts, comfort our tummies and soothe our palates every season. Pumpkin spice, apple, carrot, caramel, fig — is your mouth watering yet?

Beyond the flavors, the decorative details at your fingertips to adorn a fall-flavored cake are show-stopping. Leaving your cake unfrosted, or naked, is particularly stunning adorned with seasonal fruit.

These fall flavors are a cut (or slice) above the rest.
