Lately, bakeries are making real cake masterpieces based on the art work of famous contemporary artists. Beside a very delicious taste these unique creations are surprising the clients with a real approach to the impressionist, surrealist, neoexpressionist, hip hop, modern paintings, creating a sweet confusion in everybody mind when you can actually eat a piece of Van Gogh “Starry Night“, a slice of Monet’s “Water Lilies” or a piece of Mondrian’s abstract colored shapes!
Gustav Klimt “The Kiss” Cake
Inspired by Klimt’s outstanding painting, this piece of “kissed art“ completely covered in the delicate swirls, geometric shapes, and expression that make Gustav Klimt’s painting “The Kiss so compelling and memorable”, will melt in your mouth, and the bakery people who manually painted the cake should feel happy that they realized such a piece of culinary art resembling the original.

Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” cake.
A pond full of blue icing and brown cake makes one of the most famous painting of the Impressionism very sweet and ready to be served as a delicious desert, with its “lively impressionist dashes of paint re-created in artfully applied icing”.
Water Lilies is a series of approximately 250 oil paintings by French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840–1926) who has painted the lilies from his garden in Giverny, France and became the main project of the “last 30 years of his life”.

Piet Mondrian Abstract Art Cake
One of the famous museums in USA, TheMuseum of Modern Art (MOMA) in San Francisco is offering their visitors, who will stop by the coffee shop, a sweet piece of
desert based on some famous artists’ work from its exhibits. Beside cakes, they serve also drinks based on the museum’s shows! The menu is different everyday and the most appreciated cake is Mondrian Cake, “which features colored cake blocks that look just like the modern artist’s famous compositions”.

Vincent Van Gogh Cake
Van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890) has used very thick layers of paint on his canvases, giving to the surface of the art work the impression of heavy texture almost a 3-dimensional look.
On the cake, the thick blue, yellow and white icing looks like the strokes of oil color on
Van Gogh’s painting, only the difference is that the last one seems very appetizing and invites you to sit down and have a piece of it thanking in your mind to the amateur cook who has baked and has painted the cake using only a print of the original masterwork and made everything to look so perfect and outstanding.

“With cakes like these, you’d have to be extra glutinous to eat such beauties!” We can talk now about contemporary “culinary art“ beside the real contemporary art. And exactly like art masterpieces, who are exhibited in Art Museums, these cakes belong in a Museum of Culinary treats!
