Icing on the Cake: A Cake {or Cupcake} Decorating Competition

Activity Overview

This activity is a great way to enjoy dessert and improve morale! Teams work together to plan, design, shape and decorate cakes. The event begins with a series of activities, all requiring teamwork in a competitive atmosphere. Teams are awarded points based on their performance during the activities. The points are necessary for the culminating event: the design, shaping, and decorating of a cake. Cakes are provided (baked and ready to go), all the confectionery, tools and decorative items needed. Collaboration and lots of laughs throughout this uplifting activity as facilitators lead the final ceremony including judging. Prizes and awards make it all the more fun. Which cake will be “too nice to slice?!”  What kind of cake and materials?  

Cakes: sheet cakes, cup cakes, rounds of all sizes (for tiered cakes), vanilla and chocolate 

Decorating Set: a full decorating set for each team, including pastry bags and assorted tips, food coloring, decorations and frosting. Finishing Touches: candles, sprinkles, candy or anything else you can find or negotiate from another team to decorate your cake
