Edible Art: Kusama Inspired Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles

A fun pumpkin truffle recipe inspired by the artwork of Yayoi Kusama.

This is the second recipe I created after being inspired by a memorable visit to Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama‘s traveling exhibit “Infinity Mirrors”, when it was at the Hirshhorn Museum in DC. So what do Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles have to do with contemporary art?

Well, reflecting (har-har) back to the time I took my little spawn nugget to see the polka dot displays made famous by Kusama, I remembered the walk-in exhibit “All the Eternal Love I Have For the Pumpkins.” Created with LED lit pumpkins reflected for eternity in a black glass lined room, the sea of polka dotted gourds glowed for as far as the eye could see.

A fun recipe for candy s’mores bark inspired by marbled art.

Check out these lazy bears swimming in a groovy swirly sea of pink, turquoise, and lavender. I want to jump in right now! Or are those bears sunbathing on Unicorn Beach on Planet Pretty in a galaxy far far away? Oh, it’s white chocolate bark! I’ll just go ahead and it eat it now then, thanks.
