Announcing our 5th Annual Literary Cake Decorating Contest

Last Year's Cakes

This April the Henry Whittemore Library will be celebrating National Library Week (April 12-18th)
Faculty, Staff, & Students, and patrons are welcome to participate in our 5th 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 last year’s event: http://www.slideshare.net/cprevite/4th-annual-literary-cake-decorating-contest-event
(Only one cake per person and no commercially decorated cakes allowed!)
The rules for the event are simple. Register with Colleen Previte at cprevite@framingham.edu or x4648, if you wish to participate in the contest. Bring in your “Book-themed” cake to the Henry Whittemore Library by 9:00am, Friday, April 17th. 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 will put a token in the box of the cake they like 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 9:00am-12:00pm. Winners will be announced at 12:30 pm or via phone/e-mail, at 12:30pm we will cut into these delicious creations and them with everyone, unless told otherwise.
We hope you will consider participating in our Fifth Annual Literary Cake Decorating Contest!
