Library Hosts 'Incredible Edible Book Contest' on Saturday
Professional judges include Clarendon's Bayou Bakery Chef David Guas and Bakeshop's Justin Stegall.
Have you ever loved a book so much you devoured it? The Cherrydale Branch Library is taking that concept literally.
Professional judges including Bayou Bakery's David Guas will judge Saturday's Incredible Edible Book Contest.
An edible book, according to the library, is "any representation of a book title that is made primarily from edible materials. It can look like a book, refer to a character, be a pun on a title, etc. It can be as fancy as a decorated cake or as simple as a bowl of grapes (The Grapes of Wrath?)"
Entries should be dropped off between 10 a.m. and noon Saturday at the Cherrydale library, 2190 N. Military Road.
The public can begin viewing the entries at noon. Awards will be given out at 3 p.m., followed by light refreshments.
