the art fund has kicked off a fundraising initiative that encourages art lovers and creatives to make edible masterpieces, with all money raised going towards the support of hundreds of UK museums and galleries. the philanthropic bake-off asks entrants to create food-based works of art, with recommended recipes including a mondrian-inspired battenberg, a jackson pollock themed marshmallow treat and a glittering cake mimicking the familiar diamond-encrusted damien hirst skull. campaign co-ordinator katharine richards explains, ‘we’re hoping to inspire people, through the medium of food, to raise money for our national museums and galleries. what could be more fun than recreating your favorite work of art out of simple ingredients you have in your fridge – which you can then eat!’
