Kids Cooking Time Fun

Bring your kids with to have some fun making Cinnamon rolls.  Each team will get their own dough to roll out and have the filling to fill it with.  Once the dough is proofing and baking we will make up the frosting to top them off with.  Come ready to enjoy some fun hands on time with your kids on a cold winter day. You might want to bring a container with to take home your goodies in.  Since you will be working in pairs only the adult needs to register for the class.
