The pastry chefs at Blue Bottle Coffee Bar at the San Francisco Museum of Art say it's the art around them that inspired a range of dishes that look like, well, art.

Caitlin Freeman and her team have created a menu that includes dishes that look like famous pantings, including works by Mark Rothko, Donald Judd and Damien Hirst. Freeman is also the author of Modern Art Desserts, a cookbook that's set to hit shelves on April 16.

Check out Freeman's work in the gallery below, and scroll down further for a video featuring another creation -- a Mondrian cake.
