6 Museum-Ready Artworks That Will Also Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

Everything is better when there's cake involved.

One college student has found a great hobby to ease the stress of Ivy League demands. The icing on the cake is that her artistic creations are also edible. 

Emily Zauzmer's life at Harvard University may be demanding, but she's found her Zen place in the sugary goodness of baking cakes. Still, this 20-year-old is no Betty Crocker. She's more like the Vincent van Gogh of pastry chefs. 


Zauzmer's art-inspired cakes feature famous masterpieces made out of icing, and the replicas of classic portraits such as Grant Wood's "American Gothic" and Edvard Munch's "The Scream" are sweet! 

While her culinary pursuit is intended to ease the stresses of school, these cakes are no easy task. Zauzmer's backbreaking artistic expression often takes anywhere between 12 hours and four days to complete. But despite the time commitment, she told Mashable, "I really look forward to it, because, with school there's so much work at all times." 

Check out Zauzmer's icing artworks below:

1. "The Scream" by Edvard Munch

2. "The Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh

3. "Girl With the Pearl Earring" by Johannes Vermeer

4. "Oh, Jeff ... I Love You, Too ... But ..." by Roy Lichtenstein

5. "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat

6. "American Gothic" by Grant Wood
