Jeremy McCord worked freehand with 3,500 M&Ms, several cans of white icing and a 32-by-40-inch frame. He went withDr. Seuss, the theme suggested for the 19th annual Edible Art Exhibition at Towson High School, and sculpted the bite-sized bits of red, white and black into a grinning replica of the Cat in the Hat. "I liked 'The Lorax' best as a kid, but the 'Cat in the Hat' is the most recognizable Seuss concept," Jeremy said. The framed piece took Best in Show last week and the freshman entrant chose a gift certificate for ice cream from a prize board.
