Second and third place student winners were Karen James, for “Here Comes Peter Cottontail,” winning a $50 Visa gift card; and Taylor Keating and Katina Economidis for “The Cat in the Hat,” winning a $25 Visa gift card.

In the community category, Carol Graf won for her cake “Aunt Flossie’s Hat and Crabcakes Later,” made to resemble a floppy spring hat. She also received a trophy and Kimbel Library Gift Pack.

CCU students, faculty and staff, along with members of the community, were invited to create and submit edible books, which had to be at least partially edible representations of any written work.
