Where was I last weekend?

April 7, 2015

loganberry logotorte-MThe wonderful Loganberry Book Store held their annual Edible Books Festival on Saturday, April 4, where edible portrayals of real books were displayed, voted on, and consumed.

Here are some of the entries:

What am I reading, er, eating on tattoo Tuesday?

Watermelon Seed Prize2

Our lovely, local, independent bookstore sponsors an Edible Book Fair every April.  Everyone is invited to submit a totally edible interpretation of a book.  The entries are displayed, judged, and eaten.  The set up and the voting takes a couple of hours.  You can’t imagine how quickly the displays are devoured!

The book I chose was The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli which is the Recipient of the 2014 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award for the most distinguished beginning reader book.

I humbly announce that our entry (above) consisting of a fondant-covered red velvet cake watermelon with watermelon slice-shaped sugar cookies won the award for Most Appetizing.  The prizes in the contest are, not a surprise, books! It is a lot of fun to see what people – kids and adults – come up with.

Edible Book Festivals have become a global event, read more here.

Tuesday would not be complete without tattoos:
