Cake Boss: See SFMOMA's Tasty Works Of Art, Right Here!

Sure, one of the joys of swinging through the SFMOMA is gawking at the impressive modern-art selection. But, we wouldn’t be being completely forthcoming with you if we didn’t admit that half of the reason we frequent the museum is to get our nosh on at Blue Bottle Coffee's rooftop outpost.
If you haven’t tasted the notable Mondrian-inspired cake, we suggest you immediately pause whatever it is you're doing and jet there now. The sweet offerings aren’t just satisfying for the taste buds, they're also little visual works of art — literally, they're inspired by influential pieces throughout history. And, to celebrate, the pastry-chef extraordinaire Caitlin Freeman has just released a hard-copied tribute to the treats to help you recreate these delicacies at home (ambitious, we know!).
Before you run out and snag a copy of this must-have tome titled Modern Art Desserts , and even before you peep this cheeky promo video, we suggest ogling some of these hunger-inducing images inspired by world-class pieces. We'll warn you though, click at your own risk — as your belly is sure to rumble!
