Thanks to my astute mother for discovering and documenting these incredible artist-inspired cakes served in the cafe of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The museum's resident baker, Caitlin Williams Freeman, invents an ever-revolving and evolving series of gorgeous cakes, ice creams and pastries in homage to the works on view. Personally, as an art historian and a cake devotee (understatement), this seems like the most brilliant of all possible combinations. I can't wait to see what Freeman comes up with next and hope to make it to the West Coast to taste-test her newest creations soon!
