Cake with Blue, Red & Yellow

FullSizeRender-20After mustering up enough courage, my friends and I decided to actually try and make the famous Mondrian cake. Created by Caitlin Freeman, this cake was no easy feat. It took five helpers two days of baking, four different color loaf cakes, a dull serrated knife and a lot of chocolate ganache to make this cake. We had our doubts, but once we cut the cake we knew we had succeeded. We had baked and correctly assembled the Mondrian cake. Who else is up for the challenge?FullSizeRender-21

One of my favorite hobbies is cooking. I love to putter in the kitchen and experiment with new recipes. On a trip to San Francisco I discovered Modern Art Desserts by Caitlin Freeman, a cookbook that combined two of my passions — art and baking. Inspired by a recent exhibition of her work, I began with a recipe for a Wayne Thiebaud Cake. This cake was the first of many experiments trying to bake great works of art. What should I bake next?
