Photos of Desserts Inspired by Famous Artworks

New York-based photographer Sarah Anne Ward has a knack for elevating food and drink to inspired heights—you may recall her tantalizing, mouth-watering vintage cocktail series. Her new project, in collaboration with talented food stylist Heather Meldrom, transforms traditional kid treats into famous works of art. Ward says it’s an ongoing series she will continue to build as inspiration comes to mind. Some artists to look forward to on the plate: Dali, Picasso, and possibly Warhol. Once she finishes the desserts, Ward is planning to do a sub-series with various pizza pies.
