Modern Desserts

How about a warm mug of Tetrahedral City? Or a slice of Mondrian?
The Blue Bottle Coffee Bar at The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has been serving up desserts based on the works of artists, from Warhol to Lichtenstein Cake—and in a case of art being turned into cake, and then back into art, the 16 of April heralds the release of the Modern Art Desserts cookbook featuring 27 recipes.
Want a talking point at your next dinner party? Then grab the book from Amazon. [http://www.amazon.com/Modern-Art-Desserts-Recipes-Confections/dp/1607743906]
Here’s a sneak peek of what’s inside:
Bradford Cheese Plate  For beginner bakers, the simple cheese plate gets an upgrade with homemade buttermilk crackers, apricot butter, and savory slices of cheese arranged according to Mark Bradford’s layered, abstract paintings.
Mondrian Cake
Freeman’s white velvet cake and a chocolate ganache are carefully cut and arranged to resemble Piet Mondrian’s graphic works.
Fuller’s Hot Chocolate
Homemade marshmallows float in rich cocoa and are topped with sea salt for a delicious rendition of Buckminster Fuller’s Tetrahedral City.
