The Anthology, only edible

Every year, the lovely folks at Yale University Press have a bakeoff contest at their holiday party.  Categories change from year to year but the one constant is a prize for the Best Book Based on a YUP title.

Some highlights in the past have included a cake shaped like an electric guitar, another in the shape of New England with state-specific toppings on each state…people definitely get into it.

So what better for the holiday party this year than not one but two entries based on The Anthology of Rap?  Pretty sweet.
