Birthdays and Holidays at the CDL

Below you will find the CDL's recipe list that children can use to select a special snack for their birthday. The snack becomes a class cooking project to help celebrate the special day. This activity is in lieu of traditional cupcakes or birthday cake. Parents are welcome to help provide ingredients for the snack or the CDL will purchase them. Your child's class will prepare the snack as a classroom activity. You are more than welcome to join us. Confer with your child's teacher regarding the time of day the birthday will be celebrated with their special snack.
