Chicka chicka boom boom!

The Ridgewood Public Library held a fun event this week: the first annual Edible Book Celebration. Library members of all ages were invited to bring in a cake inspired by a book. I was honored to be asked to judge the competition, and award first prize in categories for grades K-5, grades 5-12, and adult, as well as “pun-derful & funny” and Most Beautiful. They also asked me to bring a display cake based on one of my favorite books. My daughter suggested Chicka Chickja Boom Boom and she was right — it made a great cake!
