Bond Over Buttercream
Corporate team building is essential for developing a culture of collaboration and increasing employee morale. However, trust-falls and powerpoints can get old quickly, leaving your team unenthused about the idea of team building. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your corporate team building with an event your employees or co-workers are excited to attend, then look no further. Sweetology has developed a unique curriculum that can make anyone love team building.
During this team-building event, teams will first compete in a trivia session that enables them to earn points to purchase items for decorating. Each team will then design and decorate a cake utilizing our wide selection of tools, fondant, coloring, candy and chocolate. During the process, “market forces” cards will come into play, creating challenges to be incorporated into the design or process. Teams will be timed and will be judged according to time, creativity, neatness and alignment with overall objective.
Bond your team over the common goal of doing good for the community. Sweetology has partnered with It’s Your Birthday Inc., a non-profit that provides birthday parties for kids in domestic violence or homeless shelters. Each team will be given a cake design at random which is themed toward a birthday cake for one of these children. The groups will receive limited instruction and will be able to use any of the materials in the store to execute their design. Teams will be timed and will be judged according to time, creativity, neatness and alignment with overall objective.
During this team building event, individuals will be divided into groups and will be rotated through groups. Each group will have 15 minutes to complete a small specific challenge. For example, sculpt a minion out of fondant that can be placed on a cake. After the speed dating exercise, a larger team or teams will be formed to then create a cake design using the materials created during the speed dating exercises.
Show your team some finger-licking fun by hosting your next corporate event at Sweetology, or have us bring our decorating bar to a venue of your choosing. Whether you have a cake-boss style team competition or decorate your own cupcakes, our skilled Sweetologists will work with you to make sure your experience is one to remember.
