Once they get into it, everyone has serious fun designing and decorating a cake. Even (or maybe especially) if they’ve never done it before. This culinary team building event begins with delicious sheet cakes already baked to perfection, so forget that old line about needing to break a few eggs here; it’s all about decoration and presentation. Naturally, we provide all cakes and a wild assortment of decorating supplies.
Let Them Eat Cake! is framed as a friendly competition in which teams sketch possible designs, working together to focus the vision behind their sweet masterpiece. Will they go for the company logo? Some symbol that reflects how the team sees itself? A culinary caricature of your CEO? The cakes are then sculpted according to each teams plan, and soon the frosting begins to fly. Teamwork…diplomacy…bargaining…and plenty of laughter. And when your friendly TeamBonding Pastry Chef/facilitator calls time, each group gets to present their creation, complete with team cheer and an explanation of the design.
Any way you slice it, Let Them Eat Cake! is a fabulous morale booster and a great way to pull everyone together.
2 to 3 hours
No kitchen needed! A conference room, meeting room or pavilion with enough tables and chairs to accommodate your full group. A stage or open space at one end of the room is helpful.
