books! sweets! friends! What else could be better?
On Saturday, April 10, my friends Susan, Chloe and Meagan and I presented two edible representations of books at the Seattle Edible Book Festival in Wallingford.
Our two entries were Frank Hubert’s Dune
Here’s a photo of our display.
Layered spice cake, vanilla frosting, cinnamon and sugar on top, Twinkie, marshmallows, fruit roll-ups, frosting — and inedible plastic figures.
Our second entry was from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon.
Here’s our sleeping dog.
At the end of the judging, we were given plates and forks and we consumed our edible art. It was delicious and entertaining! A creative and fun way to spend the afternoon — especially for librarians (and book-lovers) with a sweet-tooth!
