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?

  1. The cake looks delicious! How was the Eggleston exhibit?

    What’s so interesting to me is the final photo — it could have been taken anywhere. There are no clues to indicate that it was taken in Japan.

  2. The cake was delicious. In fact the image cakes are consistently good. Eggleston is beyond words.
