Books take the cake in contest

Posted: Monday, March 12, 2012, 9:43 am

Enter an upcoming Library competition and you may never look at titles like Green Eggs and Ham, Stone Soup or The Catcher in the Rye in quite the same way!

To enter the library's fourth annual Edible Books Contest, scheduled March 29 at Northwest Library, your entirely edible entry must have a book or literary theme.

In addition to celebrity judges and awards for professionals and amateurs, there's a new category this year: Child/Family, for participants under the age of 18!

Registration and set up starts at 6pm and judging and viewing will take place from 7-8:30pm, at which time awards will be presented and the entries eaten.

Celebrity judges include Columbus Dispatch Food Editor Robin Davis and local food blogger Nick Dekker. Don't miss the creative concoctions entered by professional bakers, Our CupCakery and Sassafras Bakery.
