The Art Fund, a UK-based charity which raises money to help galleries purchase and exhibit works of art, is using edible artwork as an upcoming fundraising initiative called Edible Masterpieces. It’s a philanthropic bake-off.

To help inspire prospective participants, the Art Fund created and staged a series of recipes, which include a Mondrian-inspired Battenberg cake, a Jackson Pollock-themed rice krispies treat, and a glittering skill-shaped cake made in the likeness of Damien Hirst’s diamond-encrusted skull. For those more inclined towards a savory treat there’s even a van Gogh-inspired ploughman’s lunch.

All funds raised will be used to support UK museums and galleries. Click here to learn more.
