What is the Books2Eat Challenge?
This challenge is an annual library challenge that takes place during the spring. The only rule is to make edible art that has something to do with books as shapes and/or content. This challenge is an opportunity for students to collaborate, create, problem-solve and most of all celebrate their favorite books! Over the past few years, students have made their edible art from cakes, cookies, pancakes, ice cream, fruit, fondant, mochi, rice, whipped cream, marshmallows, pretzels, vegetables, and there have even been a few “book bentos”.
Photo Requirements: Submit 2 photos
Photo #1 – A closeup of the edible art and the book.
Photo #2 – A photo of the edible art and the baker(s).
