2016 Edible Book contest

Looking to way to express your creative baking skills? The Bowman Regional Public Library is excited to announce the first annual Edible Book Contest! How does is work? Pick a book title or character of a book, make a pun on a famous title, or simply make your creation in the shape of a book (or scroll, or tablet, etc.) Then let your creativity skills take over! Make a Cat in the Hat cake or decorate a stack of graham crackers to look like books. You can even make Rainbow Fish cookies! You are limited only by your imagination (and the entry guidelines found on our website). Really, the possibilities are endless!


GUIDELINES: Any adult, family or group of any size can submit an entry that is made of edible materials and related to books in either shape or theme. Please remember to be conscientious of safe food handling. Entries may be made from anything that is edible (cake, bread, crackers, Jell-O, fruit, vegetables, candy, etc.) as long as it can sit out for an hour or two without melting, turning bad, or getting scary.


The Edible Book contest will be held on Tuesday, April 19th. Our celebrity judges will be Bryce Martin and Nate Lee from the Bowman County Pioneer and Aurora Keppler from the Bowman County Development Corporation. There will be plenty of fun and prizes so please start planning the best way to show off your skills!


Online entry form is here.

Update: Here are some of the 2015 entries!
