A Festival of Edible Books? Preposterous!

17003509295_bb8e48920f_oNow is the time to grab a spatula and let out a primal scream for Read It and Eat It, our third annual edible book festival, is nigh! Our promotion of literacy and gluttony and whimsy will occur in the Glass Pavilion on March 31st from noon – 2:30. Did I mention eating cake? Because you get to eat cake!

Last year’s festival featured existential dilemmas, a watery grave, and the untimely collapse of The Cat in the Hat’s hat. Who knows what culinary mischief lies in the hearts of this year’s baking champions?

As is tradition, prizes will be awarded by popular vote in the following categories: most delicious dessert, funniest dessert, best effort, and overall best in show. Golly gumdrops, do we have prizes! Fancy a dinner at The Brewer's Art or The Food Market? Care to see a show at the Everyman Theater or Chesapeake Shakespeare Company? Then you have to bake to win!

Ready to register? Then do so quickly. The deadline to enter a cake is 11:59pm on Tuesday, March 29.  Need some inspiration? Follow our sugary crumbs to tumblr or  Pinterest to gain inspiration from cakes of years past!
