I gasped when I saw the cover of Modern Art Desserts: Recipes for Cakes, Cookies, Confections, and Frozen Treats Based on Iconic Works of Art by Caitlin Freeman! A Mondrian cake is the cover feature. Like a true librarians, I quickly flipped to the table of contents where thumbnails of the desserts accompany the recipe names and page numbers. Whom would I most imagine to be featured in a book of this title? Wayne Thiebaud, of course. And there are four cakes modeled after his art!
Oh, will I ever love reading the stories and recipes...and then attempting to make some of the art-inspired desserts myself. I am a grateful writer today for this surprise gift. Thank you.
