Notable Date to Celebrate: January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day!

You probably already know that at CMLE, we offer a service called “Notable Dates for your Noggin” which feature special holidays and birthdays of authors, as well as publications of well-known books. In an effort to help you get more from this service, we’ve decided to select one “Notable Date” each month to feature. We will include a few fun programming and activity ideas too, all for you to use!

Almost too pretty to eat!

January 27th is National Chocolate Cake Day!

The obvious way to celebrate this day, of course, would be to make/share/eat chocolate cake! Encouraging your patrons or students to try different recipes would be festive (and maybe they would share their cake with you!) And recipes are definitely out there in abundance. Try this one-bowl chocolate cake recipe,  or in case you are feeling adventurous, here is one for quinoa chocolate cake. (Please let us know how this turns out if you try it!)

Not in the mood for cake? Read about it instead! Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake looks adorable, or this one based in New Zealand called Chocolate Cake for Breakfast



You could also indulge in a different way and try this recipe for a chocolate facial! Sounds easy and yummy!

Finally, who could possibly appreciate Chocolate Cake Day more than Bruce Bugtrotter from Matilda? Celebrate the day by re-reading or watching the book or movie!
