Cake Art Inspired by Masterpieces

 

My kid loves visiting the Getty Museum and her favorite painting is Van Gogh’s Irises. During our last visit she suggested we make a cake look like a painting.  Pretty clever. So I did some research and lo and behold the kid wasn’t the first one to come up the idea.  Far from it. See some of my favorite cake art after the jump…
