CAG Edible Book Fair 2018

You can have your cake and read it too!

What is it?

The Edible Book Fair is the perfect place for you to show off your creativity! Just pick any book and create a display that depicts a scene from the book or the book jacket or a funny play on words. The only criteria is that it must be edible! Check the categories below and the special awards!

When is it?

The competition will be held on Monday, April 23rd. Projects should be dropped off before school or at the beginning of first period.


Classics - Everyone knows these books.

(Gone with the Wind, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Odyssey, etc)

Children's Book - What was your favorite book as a small tyke?

(Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are, Rainbow Fish, etc.)

Drop-Dead Gorgeous - This is pretty self-explanatory. Your project is beautiful.

Funniest/Punniest - Let your imagination run wild and show us your funny interpretation of a book. You could also use a pun or play on words to change the title a bit. (Maybe a scene from The Hunger Games would be "Peeping Day" instead of "Reaping Day." You would use marshmallow peeps as people.)

People's Choice - Your peers and the C A Gray faculty will vote on their favorite entries. It's an edible popularity contest!
