Photo Gallery: Edible Book Festival feeds and amuses students at Hornbake
The Edible Book Festival held at Hornbake Library hosted over a dozen edible creations inspired by various pieces of literature created by graduate students, undergraduates students, library associates, and more.
Held on April Fool’s Day every year, the festival encourages its contestants to use their wit to create puns on famous book titles such as “The Lady of the Cake,” or “The Communist Manipesto.” Other contestants used scenes or concepts from books as inspiration to create edible scenes from the literature.
During the festival, votes were cast to determine which creation was the most appetizing, wittiest, and other categories. After the judging was complete, anyone in attendance got to dig into any of the edible creations around them.
