Love Minneapolis’ Spoonbridge and Cherry? Now you can eat it
Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden by scarfing an edible replica of the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture at Gather by D'Amico at Walker Art Center.
The dessert is available through the summer as a special item on the menu and includes a chocolate mousse dome on a chocolate shortbread, a chocolate almond cake filled with cherry cheesecake and a bittersweet-chocolate tart drizzled with cherry compote.
To finish it, a marzipan cherry is perched atop a spoon made of molded chocolate.
Spoonbridge and Cherry, by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, has been a staple of the Minneapolis landscape since 1988. The iconic structure (much beloved by Twin Cities-area residents) can also act as a fountain during the warmer months - water spouts from the top of the Cherry’s stem. [x]
