Cake with White Center

IMG_9905Whenever I go to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art I always visit Mark Rothko’s White Center, which is located in the Ahmanson Building. I find myself always staring at the blending colors with its striking white stripe in the center. What is it about this work that is so inviting? I am not sure. But what I am sure is that I can recreate this in the form of a cake. So I did. Combining various food dyes to try to produce similar colors to Rothko’s paint, I frosted Cake with White Center to resemble White Center.
