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.

August Queen of Heaven, Sovereign Mistress of the angels, Thou who from the beginning hast received from God the power and mission to crush the head of Satan, we humbly beseech thee to send thy holy Legions, that, under thy command and by thy power, they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks and drive them hence into the abyss of eternal woe. Amen.
- A tradition prayer to Mary for protection against evil spirits
