SFMOMA's Colorful Mondrian Cake: A Recipe

One thing I've been a little obsessed with lately is the special dessert collaboration between Blue Bottle Coffee and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). The coffee company has created special desserts especially to be sold at the museum, all of which are inspired by famous modern artists. My personal favorite is a cake inspired by Piet Mondrian's "Composition in Red, Yellow & Blue". Mondrian worked with virtual simplification of forms until all that was left was thick lines and blocks that varied in color meant to create a sense of movement in the piece. Now replace all those lines and blocks with chocolate and fluffy pieces of cake, and you've got yourself something as fun to eat as it is to simply look at. The SFMOMA is currently under construction until early 2016, so you can only order full cakes off the Blue Bottle website. However, since their collaboration, head pastry chef Caitlin Freeman has also published a book full of all the different art-inspired recipes called "Modern Art Desserts". Here is the recipe for adventurous Vinglers who want to create a little edible art in their kitchen! (Attached is a bonus video of Blue Bottle Coffee making their on Mondrian cakes, plus my second place favorite SFMOMA dessert, the "Ocean Park #122"-inspired Richard Diebenkorn Trifle!) Mondrian Cake You will need 1 x 20cm square tin 3 x 450g loaf tin (measuring approx 16cm x 11cm x 7cm) or 1 battenberg tin For the cakes 500g unsalted butter 500g caster sugar 5 eggs 500g sour cream or Greek yogurt 750g self-raising flour 1 tsp of salt Red, blue and yellow food coloring gels or paste For the ganache 400g dark 50% chocolate, chopped 300ml double cream Preparation 1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F). Grease and line the base and sides of your tins with baking paper. 2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy using a food processor, electric hand whisk, or a wooden spoon and some elbow grease. Add the eggs, one at a time, plus sour cream, self-raising flour and salt, and whisk together until smooth. 3. Spoon 900g of the mix into the 20cm square tin and put to one side. 4. Divide the remaining mixture into three bowls, with approximately 450g of cake mix in each. Color one bowl’s mixture with the blue dye, another with the red and finally, yellow. You want the colors to be vivid, so really go for it. 5. Spoon the different colored mixtures into the three separate loaf tins and place in the oven, along with the square tin, for 45-50 minutes, until an inserted skewer comes out clean. (You might want to rotate the tins so that they’re evenly cooked.) Leave to cool, then transfer to wire racks. 6. Meanwhile, make the ganache, which you will use to stick the cake together and coat the outside. Put the chocolate into a bowl and heat the cream in a saucepan over a medium heat. Just before it boils, pour it over the chocolate. Leave to sit for five minutes, then stir until smooth. Leave to cool. 7. Place the cooled cakes on a chopping board. Using a bread knife, slice all the edges off the cakes so that you’re left with long, brightly colored rectangles, approximately 18cm in length. 8. Using a picture of your chosen Mondrian for inspiration, very carefully measure and slice the cakes to make straight-edged long rectangles. Put the cake slices together as you build your picture. 9. Line two trays with baking parchment. Piece by piece, spread the cake lengths with the chocolate ganache, using it like glue to stick your strips back together to recreate your Mondrian on one tray. Put in the fridge to firm up for about one hour – this hardens the ganache and makes the cake easier to work with. 10. Remove the cake from the fridge. Spread the ganache over the cake, using a pallet knife to smooth it over the sides and top. Transfer to the fridge for one hour to firm up. Remove from the fridge, place the second lined baking tray on top and invert the cake. Use the rest of ganache to coat the remaining edge – you may have to heat it up slightly to loosen it. Make sure the ganache is evenly spread. Place in the fridge for a final hour, then remove and allow it to reach room temperature. Finally, slice the cake, feel smug and serve.

Check: Delta Cancellation Policy Delta Airlines baggage fees Delta Airlines baggage fees are complicated and can be difficult to understand. The website for Delta Airlines has a page dedicated to baggage fees, but it's not always clear which fee is applicable and when. If you have questions about your specific situation, we encourage you to call customer service before booking your flight. Delta Airlines' basic checked bag fee is $30 per bag. However, this fee can be reduced or eliminated with certain ticket purchases. For example, the fee can be waived if you purchase an Economy Comfort ticket or if you buy a One-Way fare. Delta Airlines also charges a fee for oversized or overweight bags. This fee is calculated based on the dimensions of your bag and ranges from $75-$150 per piece, depending on how much oversize/overweight your bag is by inches/pounds. When calculating this fee, Delta takes into account the length+width+height of your bag in inches (excluding wheels). The weight limit for each piece of checked luggage is 50 pounds; however, this limit can be increased by buying additional weight allowance at check-in or online before departure (for an extra cost). For travelers in the Main Cabin seat on a flight within the United States, without a Delta SkyMiles® American Express Card, Medallion Status, or Active Military exceptions: $30 For your first standard checked bag under 50 lbs. (23 kg), each way $40 For your second standard checked bag under 50 lbs. (23 kg), each way Baggage size must not exceed 62 inches (158 cm) when you total LENGTH + WIDTH + HEIGHT. For carry-on baggage sizing and requirements, please visit our Carry-On Baggage page. If you are a Delta SkyMiles Medallion Member or a Delta SkyMiles® American Express Card Member, your first standard checked bag flies free. Please note that the checked baggage allowance and price each way vary by route and fare class. Delta Airlines Standby Fees Delta Airlines standby fees are charged to passengers who have not booked a ticket before and want to fly standby. The fee is $75 per segment or part of a flight. Each segment is considered to be one part of a journey, such as a trip from Los Angeles to New York City. The fee must be paid by the passenger when they check in to their flight and apply for standby status. If you're not able to board a flight after checking in as standby, you may be required to pay an additional fee of $75 per segment on top of your original standby fee if it's necessary for another passenger to take your seat on the plane. The fee can't be waived even if you've paid for an upgrade or extra legroom seat on the flight because these are considered separate purchases. Delta Airlines pet fee Delta Airlines charges a $150 fee for pets in the plane's cabin. If you're flying with more than one pet, you'll have to pay the fee for each one. The fee also applies if you want to check your pet and bring it back into the cabin at any point during your flight. Each carrier has different restrictions and regulations, but all of them require that your pet be 8 weeks old or older and weigh less than 10 pounds. If you are traveling within the United States, Alaska, or Canada, there are no additional fees for Delta's PetSafe Program. However, if you're traveling between states outside of those listed above or internationally, an additional fee will be associated with transporting your pet. Delta Airlines priority boarding fee Cardholders receive Main Cabin 1 priority boarding on Delta flights, which means they can get on the plane before other economy class passengers. Having priority boarding means you'll have more time to find space in the overhead bins for your carry-on and a bit of breathing room to get settled into your seat. Delta Airlines Priority Boarding fee is $15 for domestic flights and $50 for international flights. The priority boarding fee can be paid online before your flight, at the airport, or onboard your flight. If you pay it online, you will receive an electronic receipt that can be used as a boarding pass. You can also purchase the priority boarding fee when you check in online or at the airport. If you pay for priority boarding at the airport, you'll need to present proof of payment when you board your flight. If you have purchased a Delta SkyMiles credit card, you can show your card instead of paying with cash or a credit card. Delta seat selection fee Seating on Delta flights is based on a combination of factors, including your booking class, frequent flyer status, and the overall availability of seats in the cabin. When you make your reservation, you'll be able to view your seat selection options as well as any applicable fees. If you're a SkyMiles member or have purchased an eligible fare, you'll have a choice of three seating categories: Main Cabin Extra (economy), Main Cabin (economy), and First Class. If you're traveling with two or more companions in the same booking class and you all want to sit together, please let us know when making your reservation so that we can accommodate your request. Delta also offers two ways to pick a seat even when flying basic economy. Starting seven days before departure, you can log into your reservation and pay for a seat assignment, which typically costs $29 per seat. If you're feeling lucky, you can wait until the check-in window opens 24 hours departure. The Delta seat selection fee is a charge that passengers pay to be able to choose their seats. The airline charges this fee for each person who wants to select their own seat on domestic flights, as well as some international flights. Delta will charge a fee if you don't choose your seat before check-in or at least 24 hours before departure Want to choose a seat, you must do so either online or in person at the airport at least 24 hours before departure. If you don't make your choice, Delta will assign one for you. If someone else is traveling with you and wants to sit together, they will be charged for this service.
World’s most beautiful clock towers
A welcoming view in San Francisco San Francisco’s Ferry Building, a Beaux-Arts building with a 245ft-tall tower, was the city’s primary point for arrivals and departures between 1898 and the late 1930s, when the Golden Gate and Bay bridges were built. Inside, a 660ft-long skylit atrium that once provided access to ferries now houses shops and restaurants, including Blue Bottle Coffee and the Asian restaurant Slanted Door. It is especially crowded on Saturday mornings when a farmers’ market takes over the space in front and in the rear of the building, overlooking the bay. (Julie Clarke-Bush) Colombia's grand gateway From a mosque-like tower in Malaysia to one of London’s most iconic structures, these five landmarks were designed to stand the test of time. In Colombia, the four-sided Torre del Reloj gate grants access to the most charming part of Cartagena – a walled section of 18th-century mansions, leafy squares and street cafes. The tower and clock were added in 1888; in the foreground, a statue of city founder Pedro de Heredia keeps watch. (Guillermo Vasquez/Flickr) Prague’s macabre mainstay Clockmaker Hanuš, who perfected Prague’s Old Town Hall Tower in 1490, was supposedly blinded so that he wouldn’t make a more beautiful version elsewhere. As the perfect revenge, Hanuš stopped the clock from functioning, and it was 100 years before someone would figure out how to repair it. The clock is known for its 12 marching apostles; a skeleton on the right, depicting Death, starts the show by pulling on a string and looking at his other hand, in which he holds an hourglass. Then, two windows open, allowing the apostles to make their moves. A magnificent late-Gothic door in the adjacent house serves as the main entrance to the Old Town Hall. (Reed Kaestner/Corbis) Moorish notes in Malaysia Completed in 1897 by the British colonial administration, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building anchors Kuala Lumpur’s Merdeka Square. Its Moorish style can be attributed to the mosques that architect AC Norman observed while in India. The Union Jack flag was replaced by the Malaysian flag on 31 August 1957, and many national events have taken place here since. (Boris Henriot) A storied sight in London “Big Ben” was originally a nickname used for the gargantuan bell inside the London clock tower. These days, the moniker refers to the bell, the clock face and the 315ft tower too – though the beloved icon was officially renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012, as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebration. Built from the inside out, the stone and granite tower got its finishing touch with the clock tower’s installation in 1859. The cast-iron minute hands proved too heavy, so they were replaced with today’s lighted copper hands. (Paul Hardy/Corbis)
Thursday Is Donut Day!
To celebrate the incredible progress of my plastic surgery journey, which you can read all about here, I decided to call a couple friends of mine to join me for donuts this morning. WHY? Because LA donuts from random mom and pop shops are the best, and can turn any post-op rhinoplasty into something called bliss! @Butterflyblu knows all about these dreamy eats in and around LA. This time, however, I wanted to venture out to a different donut shop. One that I'd never been too. And this is what happened: Kettle Glazed! Coming from the Valley, take the 101 S. to Vine street and go East, which turns into Franklin. Just passed Argyle. If you hit Gower, you've gone too far! Turn around! I know, parking is hit or miss, but if you have to park further than you like, imagine all the calories you'll be burning, which will make diving into these nuggets of sweet heaven all the more decadent! Their Cronut is A REVELATION OF ALL THAT IS RIGHT AND GOOD. Don't skip this!!!!!!! I think this is my new hotspot for donuts. For realz. If you live in LA, and you've never been here before--VINGLE ME! LET'S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Would you ladies care to join me for some donuts here sometime?! :) it's not a date, just a time to chill... @jordanhamilton @kaminisingh @alywoah @TessStevens @ChelseaHeyes @QueenYuki @KyotieWolf @kristenadams @Donnas @stargaze @flymetothemoon @ImUrBestFriend @galinda @Bekka @RaquelArredondo @jazziejazz @rmayra1 @prgurl4u2envy @DemiP @alannasofia @danidee @daniachicago @simplysam12 @TAIJIOTTER
Art Field Trip: Japanese American National Museum's Hello Kitty Exhibit in LA
Yesterday, my friends and I were able to visit the Japanese American National Museum's Hello Kitty retrospective, "Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty", which opened in the LA-based museum last month. Running through April 26, the exhibit celebrates everything Hello Kitty to commemorate her 40th anniversary. From backpacks and notebooks to toasters and even motor oil, the variety of products that have featured Sanrio's most iconic character is seriously staggering. Here, you get to see some of the most impressive of these. You even get to see Hello Kitty outfits and accessories once worn by celebrity Kitty fans ranging from Cameron Diaz to Katy Perry. (You can even get up close and personal with a Lady Gaga performance dress made of nothing but Hello Kitty stuffed toys!) But perhaps my favorite part of the exhibit is a complete art gallery filled with paintings, sculptures, and interactive works all inspired by Hello Kitty. The artists featured represent both American and Japanese artists, and include such popular ones as Audrey Kawasaki, Gary Baseman, D*face, and Yoskay Yamamoto. Check them out in the attached pictures!

Koreatown LA: Desserts, Desserts, & More Desserts!
One of my East Coast friends is flying to LA this summer and staying in Koreatown. Since I'm a San Diegan that sometimes heads up to LA on weekends, she asked me what to eat and where to go when visiting K-Town. Being that we've got a whole bunch of K-Entertainment fans on here, I figured it might be useful to list places for ALL of you - so if and when you're in California, you know where to visit to try some delicious food. I figured I'd start off with a card dedicated to some of my all-time favorite Koreatown desserts! Bingsu @ Cafe Heyri 755 S Hobart Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90005 There's plenty of places to get Korean-style shaved ice in Koreatown, but none of them have the variety of Cafe Heyri. There's traditional red bean (pat) bingsu, melon, green tea, coffee, chocolate, and - my personal favorite - seasonal fruit (pictured above)! Macaron Ice Cream @ HAUS by Coffee Hunter 3826 W 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020 A growing trend in dessert cafes is the ice cream macaron - an ice cream sandwich made by layering ice cream between two very big macaron shells. Not only is HAUS' version my absolute favorite, but if you're a K-Pop fan, this cafe's got massive flat-screen TVs that play all your favorite music videos while you eat! Bungeoppang @ Okrumong 3801 W 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020 Not only is Okrumong famous for its incredible take on traditional patbingsu, but it's also one of the few places in Koreatown where you can get a basket fresh bungeoppang - fish-shaped waffle-like breads filled with red bean - to share with friends! Animal Donuts @ Fantastic Donuts 1101 S Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90006 You can read a little bit more about these adorable donuts here, but Fantastic Donuts has become pretty Instagram popular for their cute animal and character donut designs. (However, I'd definitely also recommend their cereal-topped ones. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch one almost tastes like a churro!) Honeycomb Ice Cream @ Honeymee 3377 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 116, Los Angeles, CA 90010 I was telling my fellow So.Cal foodie @hmfong that I've never been able to check out Honeymee personally. Why? Because every time I'm in the neighborhood, there's a huge line of customers! How's that for a testament about how locals feel about this simply vanilla soft-serve topped with liquid honey and a generous REAL honeycomb on top? Mochi Ice Cream @ Mikawaya 118 Japanese Village Plaza Mall, Los Angeles, CA 90012 So I'm cheating and throwing in a Little Tokyo wild card - Mikawaya! Chances are, if you've ever had store bought mochi ice cream, it was made by the Mikawaya company. But LA is the only place where you can visit its shop and order some pretty unique mochi ice cream flavors, including plum wine, black sesame, and mint chocolate chip! So which one of these would you be down to try? Have any of you visited Koreatown and have other recommendations?
