Happy National Library Week! We kicked off celebrations with an Edible Books Festival, held yesterday afternoon. Kresge staff submitted an entry: “Cosmos”-politans.
We were inspired by Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, and cosmopolitans were the perfect fit. We used jello to suspend edible glitter and candy in the glasses. For the space theme, we added asteroids (rock candy and chocolate rocks), alien saucers (satellite wafers), stars (candy stars, star confetti, origami stars, star shaped sprinkles), celestial bodies (bouncy balls), and rings (glow sticks).
Many people asked us for the recipe so here it is!
And a big heartfelt congratulations to the winner of the People’s Choice category: Rainbow Fish by Jenny Bai, Diane Jang, and Juliana Park. Juliana is one of our student assistants. In fact, she was working at the front desk when the judges announced it!
Thanks to everyone who came out to join the festivities! We hope you were inspired to create your own edible book!
