We love Biscuitfest around here, because we love biscuits and we love festivals but mostly because we love biscuits. And we also love art, because, really, who doesn't love art? So the combination of art and biscuits sounds like a sure winner to us. If it does to you, too, then you need to get on this contest -- you've got five weeks to create something amazing.
