Bakers: Edible Book Day needs book-inspired cakes at the New Orleans Museum of Art

The New Orleans Museum of Art needs ... bakers. Bakers who are inspired by books, to be exact.

NOMA and Ralph Brennan's Caf NOMA are putting on an Edible Book Day on Friday, April 5, at the museum.

"We invite members of the community with a passion for books and baking to attend Edible Book Day where they can decorate a cake with the theme of their favorite book," said Sheila A. Cork, the museum's librarian.

Edible book competitions have been held elsewhere many times, but this is the first at NOMA.

Cakes will be judged in the following categories:


*Best Visual Presentation

*Most Like a Book

*Most Creative

*Professional (restricted to those who bake professionally)

To register or for more information, call Cork at 504.658.4117 or email her (scork@noma.org) for a registration form.

After the competition, a program on "Cakes, Tips and Tricks" will be presented by Brett Gauthier, executive pastry chef of the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group, in Cafe Noma, along with a cake tasting.

Gauthier will be one of the cake judges, along wtih Susan Ford, publisher of Louisiana Kitchen and Culture magazine, and me.
