Examples of Literary Cakes from 2012 contest.

Faculty, staff and students are welcome to participate in the Whittemore Library’s 3rd annual “book-themed” cake decorating contest. All you need to do is bake a cake and decorate it to represent a scene or character from a favorite book, be it a beloved children’s book or your favorite adult book. Check out photos from past year’s event here

(Only one cake per person and no commercially decorated cakes allowed!)

The rules for the event are simple. Register with Colleen Previte at or x4648, if you wish to participate in the contest.  Bring in your “Book-themed” cake to the Henry Whittemore Library on the morning of Friday, April 19th.  Please have your cake properly covered with clear plastic wrap. This will be taken off when the judging commences.  Please do not put your name on your cake; you will be assigned a number for your cake submission.

We are allowing anyone coming through the library to judge the cakes, and they would put a token in the box of the cake they find to be the best. There will be bragging rights, a photo in our library blog, and ribbons for 1st-3rd place as well as notices for honorable mentions.

Judging will run from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.  Winners will be announced at 1 p.m. or via phone/e-mail.  At 1 p.m. we will cut into these delicious creations and offer them to patrons, unless told otherwise.

We hope you will consider participating in our 3rd Annual Literary Cake Decorating Contest! Thanks – Henry Whittemore Library Staff.
