SFMOMA Art Desserts: Five Treats Inspired By Famous Artists (PHOTOS)

Talk about San Francisco's renowned Museum of Modern Art and at some point, the conversation will turn to Mondrian: the artist, the paintings and, of course, the cake.

It's what put the Blue Bottle Cafe at SFMOMA -- and pastry chef Caitlin Freeman -- on the map, but it's just one of scores of her art-inspired desserts.

These are five of the most famous, and they're all featured, along with recipes and assembly instructions, in Freeman's new book, "Modern Art Desserts" (Ten Speed Press, $25, 216 pages):
