MOMA part II ... Oh Sweet Art !

Mondrian inspired cakes are baked daily

A different kind of sensory overload awaits
high atop the SF MOMA

at the most recently added

rooftop sculpture garden

a lovely place high above the city
under a beautiful rolling sky

yes it can

Check out the amazing art inspired goodies by pastry chef,
Caitlin Williams Freeman

Her desserts pay homage to the art below
and gives visitors a new way to appreciate it

She is often is seen walking around the museum with a sketchbook in hand
looking for her next inspiration ...

( sample page from the sketchbook - I like how this woman thinks ! )

So, if you saw Katharina Fritsch's poodles and Jesus installation,
"Kind mit Pudeln"

Would you be in the mood for a poodle ice cream sandwich & cappuccino ?

How about Richard Avedon's haunting portrait,
"The Beekeeper"

does it make you jonesy for the "beekeeper petit-four" ?

One of my favorite paintings Wayne Theibald's "Display Cakes"

Comes to life. Sweet dreams ARE made of this !

So, if you are in the SF Bay area ...
this is a great stop
And a great place for blogging friends to meet ?!

( wink wink )

Have a delicious weekend !

I'm now in love with your blog, so now I must become a follower! That poodle icecream sandwich and coffee would be good right now.
