Mondrian Cake

This picture from Buzzfeed features a cake that is in the cafe at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It is based on the work of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, who was known for his paintings of “black horizontal and vertical lines, white background, and solid fields of the primary colors red, yellow, and blue,” according to SFMOMA’s website.
I want to eat this. Unfortunately, it is beyond my cake-making skills, so I might have to hoof it over to San Francisco for a piece. However, there is a pretty decent looking Mondrian cake recipe on Feasting on Art if you want to make your own. It is for pound cake instead of red velvet cake, but it looks pretty good:

  1. Very impressive! I’m the new pastry assistant at the SFMoMa Blue Bottle, & I can tell you that assembling the Mondrian cake is no small feat! I like the stained glass quality of yours.
