Last December, Nicole J Caruth posted this photo of a "Mondrian cake" to her Twitter stream. What a fabulous piece of work!
Finally trying the Mondrian cake
This is at the cafe on the roof of the SFMOMA. The Mondrian cake is a regular menu item, but they also rotate in specialized items based on the work of exhibiting artists: Cindy Sherman pink bubble gum soda and Wayne Thiebaud lemon layer cake were recent examples.
Sadly it doesn’t taste as good as it looks, or it didn’t when I had it. Undercooked and straight out of the fridge so rather solid and cold.
It looks cool but easy enough to actually attempt. I may have to try this.

More like “Nomdrian Cake!”
The cake is more interesting than the artist.
Photographed from this angle it becomes Van Doesburg cake.
Now how about a late-period Mondrian, say “Victory Boogie Woogie” cake?
Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network did a piece on this cake a while back:
Oh hey look that’s the new winner of Top Chef Masters who did it.
If you covered the top with hundreds and thousands, would you be taking the Pissarro?
It’s Mondriaan, not Mondrian.
The artist actually changed his name to Mondrian.
stuff the cake (I’m diabetic), but what make is that tea service?
Now you can have your Mondrian and eat it, too!
