Have Your Book, and Eat It, Too
Published on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 - 6:05pm
The Chevy Chase Library will be having an Edible Book Contest on Saturday, October 2, at 1 p.m.
What is an Edible Book Contest?
An edible book contest is a fun and creative way to celebrate reading. Express yourself through a literary culinary creation: whether it's an edible version of your favorite book’s cover, a yummy pun on its title, or a reference to a scene or character.
What are the contest guidelines?
1. Your edible book creation is...edible!
2. Your edible book is family-friendly.
3. Your creation has something to do with a book.
4. You disclose the ingredients of your edible book.
So, when should I be there?
1 p.m. – The judging begins.
Anything else going on that day?
While the Judges are deciding, learn how to make fondant.
What are the prizes?
First prize is a free cake from Bread and Chocolate!
Other Prizes include gift cerificates from Child's Play and Starbucks!
How do I register?
Call a participating library to register and for more information on their contest and prizes.
