Book Description

20 May 2013
Taking cues from works by Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and Matisse, pastry chef Caitlin Freeman, of Miette bakery and Blue Bottle Coffee fame, creates a collection of uniquely delicious dessert recipes (with step-by-step assembly guides) that give readers all they need to make their own edible masterpieces.

From a fudge pop based on an Ellsworth Kelly sculpture to a pristinely segmented cake fashioned after Mondrian’s well-known composition, this collection of uniquely delicious recipes for cookies, parfait, gelées, ice pops, ice cream, cakes, and inventive drinks has everything you need to astound friends, family, and guests with your own edible masterpieces.

Taking cues from modern art’s most revered artists, these twenty-seven showstopping desserts exhibit the charm and sophistication of works by Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Henri Matisse, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Avedon, Wayne  Thiebaud, and more. Featuring an image of the original artwork alongside a museum curator’s perspective on the original piece and detailed, easy-to-follow directions (with step-by-step assembly guides adapted for home bakers), Modern Art Desserts will inspire a kitchen gallery of stunning treats.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of insider tips. 8 Jan 2014
By E.R.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very detailed instructions for making the deserts are accompanied by tales of how the desert was inspired and examples of the art upon which it was based. Having attempted to make the Mondrian cake at home before the book came out we can confirm that it is a difficult undertaking when you have no instructions! The full recipe plus tips and tricks on how to assemble the cake make sense and allow you to learn from years of expertise instead of making your own wasteful mistakes.
