Wedding cakes are designed to be put on display, but these edible masterpieces take exhibition to a whole new level. Inspired by famous paintings both old and new, each of the following confections is a study in good taste.
The Inspiration: "The Basket of Apples," by Paul Cezanne, circa 1893
Designed by contributing editor Wendy Kromer, a cake maker in Sandusky, Ohio, this lemon cake was frosted in meringue to echo the original work's draped fabric, and finished with marzipan peaches and pears filled with nuts, dates, and figs.
