the image cake

The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art is a peaceful place to spend an afternoon. They have a private lawn (rare in Tokyo) and a delicious cafe that overlooks it. The cafe itself is famous for its “image cakes,” confections which hint at the artwork on show. This fondant au chocolat really captures the gist of William Eggleston’s photo of a Parisian leg, no?
