The Ulitmate Team Building Cake Off...

If you’re looking for a fun and extremely creative team building program, then The Ultimate Cake off takes the cake…

This team building program allows your team to let the creative juices flow as they design and create the best cake possible. Armed with all equipment necessary, teams must work together, communicate and delegate as they plan, build and shape their vision into reality…

In this challenge teams are faced with not only getting their creative juices flowing but their communication skills going, which come into play from the very early start. Each team has the same objective but the results are very often complete contrasts to each other. This event allows great camaraderie and team work to flow between the colleagues while there are some obstacles that might just hinder the progress a little, it is all dependent on the team on how well they can work together as a team.

One question waits to be answered…. Will there be too many cooks in the kitchen?

Stage one: The program kicks off as delegates are broken into small teams and briefed on the exciting challenge ahead. Each team will receive a chef hats and aprons that they will paint and decorate according to their team name for this event. Armed with a creative work station, all the utensils and equipment necessary including base ingredients, teams start work sketching a diagram of their master piece.

Stage two: is the base building of their cake. Teams will cut, stack, shape and align the base ingredients as their cake now begins to resemble the outline they imagined.

Stage three: is where teams require skill, craftsmanship, patience and most of all teamwork as now they must apply the covering layers and decoration. Teams will then complete small team building challenges to earn valuable items on offer. Teams will also be allocated shopping coins which they can use to purchase extra items including ingredients, decorations, or extra “bling” for their cake.

Each cake is judged on the following three criteria’s:

  • Client Satisfaction
  • Technical Difficulty
  • Artistic Appeal


At the end of the ‘Cake Off Challenge’ each team moves their cake to the judging area, where the three “judges” deliberate on the qualities and faults of each cake.

The team with the cake that has the most votes wins the ULTIMATE BRAGGING RIGHTS, plus the right to display it at their evening event / dinner or back at the office!

At the end of the day it is the judge’s decision as to which team is crowned the “Ultimate Cake Off Champions”…
