Edible Book Day
Cake Decorating Contest
Friday, April 4, 2014
New Orleans Museum of Art
Café NOMA/NOMA’s Elevator Lobby

An event for people to demonstrate their love of books, baking and art!

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. All edible books must be “bookish” through the integration of text, literary inspiration or form.

The cakes will be judged in the following categories:

  • Funniest/Punniest
  • Best Visual Presentation
  • Most Creative
  • Most like a book
  • Professional categories (restricted to those in the culinary industry)
  • Students (for students taking baking and pastry art classes)

Ribbons will be awarded for the 3 best cakes in each category, and one “People’s Choice” ribbon will be awarded.
Photos of the winning cakes will be posted on the on NOMA’s Facebook page.

Our judges includes Brett Gauthier, Ralph Brennan’s Executive Pastry Chef, Susan Ford from New Orleans Kitchen and Culture Magazine, and Susan Larson from WWNO’s The Reading Life.
