Bake-off Competitions

bake off competition

With the rise in popularity of baking shows like Great British Bake Off, many of our corporate clients are keen to introduce a competitive element to their events and a corporate bake off competition is the perfect way to do this!

After a welcome drink and nibbles, the group will be divided into teams and given the recipes before they set off baking under the watchful eye of our experienced teachers.

After everything has been baked our teachers will judge the bakes, following specific judging criteria of course, and small prizes will be awarded. There are stringent ground rules to be adhered to but a lot of fun is had at the same time! The whole group will then sit down to enjoy their bakes with tea, coffee or bubbly and anything that’s not devoured can be taken away to be eaten in the office the following day as a reminder of a fabulous event.

If you have limited time or budget, do let us know and we will try to tailor something to suit. We have a huge database of recipes and are happy to create bespoke menus for you.

For a flavour of our events, have a look at our video here.
