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

April 8, 2014

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:

    Good on ya! That layout looks delicious.


    • I actually did not get a chance to taste the cake – the the cookies were yummy. Thanks!
