New Orleans Museum of Art says
Edible Book Day is an international celebration of literature, art, and food. Museums, libraries, and universities throughout the world participate to create a program for creative individuals and community groups to highlight their artistic, baking, and decorating skills. Local community groups and individuals are invited to bake and decorate cakes inspired by books through the integration of text, literary inspiration or form. Ribbons will be awarded for the three best cakes in each category, and one “People’s Choice” ribbon will be awarded. This year’s judges are Charles Brown, City Librarian/Executive Director, New Orleans Public Library; Susan Ford, publisher of Louisiana Kitchen and Culture magazine; and Susan Larson, host of The Reading Life on WWNO-NPR 89.9 FM.

Contestants should fill out an entry form by March 31. Ribbons will be awarded in six categories: Funniest/Punniest, Best Visual Presentation, Most Creative, Most Like a Book, Students (for those taking baking and pastry art classes), and Professional Categories (restricted to those in the culinary industry). Photos of the winning cakes will be posted to NOMA’s Facebook page.
