How amazing is this Sound of Music-inspired cake? I was browsing through the portfolio of Costa Mesa-based bakery Let Them Eat Cake and came across this design, complete with a Julie Andrews cake topper, song lyrics handpainted on the tiers, and scenes from the movie fashioned from fondant. It's proof that a talented cake designer can turn anything—even something seemingly non-nuptials-related as your favorite childhood film—into a wedding-worthy confection. What are some of the most inspiring cakes you've come across? —Heather Lee, Editor, Brides Southern California
