Get together with your friends, family or colleagues on Friday 9 October to see who can make the most amazing edible creation inspired by your favourite work of art or cultural icon, while raising money for the Art Fund.
You could decorate a cake to look like a contemporary artwork, bake a biscuit that resembles an Old Master painting or make a pie inspired by a landmark building. If you’re not a dab hand in the kitchen, don’t worry. You can recreate a whole host of artworks with uncooked ingredients, such as vegetables, fruit or cheese. For inspiration, take a look at last years’ creations.
You could raffle off the cakes, organise a private view or hold a bake sale – the choice is yours! All funds raised will help to support museums and galleries to buy and show great art for everyone. Find out more about our work.
Please take lots of photos and post them on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ediblemasterpieces – we will be sharing our favourites. Have fun!
