The Public Library for Union County recently hosted an Edible Book Contest in conjunction with the Lewisburg Cooking Club.
Participants were asked to create something out of 90% edible materials that represented the title, a character or theme of a book. All entries were judged on project description, creativity and use of edible materials, overall appearance and implementation of theme.
Ken Flewelling took First Place in the adult category with his entry for “Children of the Corn.” He used corn kernels and Sour Patch Kids (photos on the Adults’ page).
Kelly Csernica, baked her depiction of “Horton Hears a Who” and added Twizzlers and a marshmallow to claim First Place in the teen category. Brie Flewelling used Fruit Rollups, candy corn and toothpicks to create her vision of ”Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. She took second place in the teen category. Photos of the entries can be found on the Teens’ page.
The children in the SUM SACC Program used peppers, lettuce, raisins, green beans, and more to create their entry for “The Grouchy Ladybug, which took First Place in the child category. Gabriella and Kim Vaillancourt, took Second Place for their very “Pinkalicious” cupcakes. Photos of the entries can be found on the Children’s page.
