This is a deliciously sweet culinary team building experience designed to bring diverse groups together in a competitive yet supportive environment. In our cake decorating team building exercise, the key event focuses on are creative thinking, communication, team interaction, presentation skills development and morale building all during a fun experience. Working in small teams, your group will conceptualize, design and decorate spectacular cakes. This event begins with delicious sheet cakes already baked to perfection and your teams will be challenged to turn them into a spectacular 3D cake. Rule #1- you’re not allowed to just ice and decorate a flat sheet cake. That’s too easy. In order to qualify for the competition your delicious design must be a 3-dimensional charm.

What to expect

• Naturally, we provide all cakes and a wild assortment of decorating supplies.

• Teams will have limited time to sketch their cake design, and will work together to focus the vision behind their sweet masterpiece. Event themes are totally up to you. Will your teams go for the company logo or some symbol that reflects how the team sees itself? Will it be a culinary caricature of your CEO? The sky’s the limit— although we’re happy to steer everyone in a common direction if you desire!

• When the clock starts, designs are sculpted according to each team’s plan, and the frosting begins to fly.

• Teamwork, diplomacy, bargaining, and plenty of laughter — all the necessary ingredients — are mixed in liberally.

• After the time had elapsed, a team of judges will evaluate each cake for creativity and execution to plan.

• The team which has the highest score at the end of the event will be declared the champion Cooking Canvas Cake Artists. Awards will be handed out to the winning team.

• Once the awards have concluded, teams will get to have their cake and eat it too when everyone gathers together to share in the fruits of their labor.

• Teams can share their sweet success to those in need, as cakes can be donated to local food banks or charitable organizations after the event.
