Who doesn't love to decorate cupcakes?  High above San Francisco-- on the 46th floor of the hotel during a large convention--150 spouses participated in the Cupcake Decorating Challenge! Armed with piping bags and frosting, the teams decorated over 500 cupcakes. Part of the challenge was to box the cupcakes, so they could be given to two charitable organizations. What a fun event. A beautiful day, sweet frosting and lots of decorating materials.

TeamBuilding Unlimited designed this program which included tips and techniques and pastry chefs! Usually TBU includes the building of a display in the event, but not this time, since the group was more concentrated on how many cupcakes could be decorated in the allotted time in order to have a bigger donation. It was a win-win event for everyone, especially the children who received the cupcakes!

Want to do the Cupcake Challenge for your next Team Building eventContact TeamBuilding Unlimited. This fun interactive and delicious activity capitalizes on your team's creativity and sweet tooth. It's great before or after a meal and can be incorporated into your lunch, dinner or afternoon teambuilding treat. 

Teams are challenged to Decorate their Cupcakes so that they symbolize the team itself, the company, the theme of the meeting, their positions at the company, or another theme.
In addition each team will be given materials to create a "DISPLAY" in which they'll be able to stack their treats into showpieces. Prizes will be given to best overall display!

Each team will be given Cupcakes and a variety of cupcake design supplies, tools and assorted decorating materials, so they can turn their concept into reality. After the cupcakes are designed, decorated and displayed, each team will create a "commercial" to present their cupcakes to the entire group.

And last but not least, participants will enjoy their creations.

Project Banner: Company Team Event

Let TeamBuilding Unlimited lead your team through a fun customized interactive event that explores their creative sides: Project Art, the Company Banner.

Participants work in teams of 5-8 to "design" a Banner that when completed represents their group, organization, mission, purpose or another theme, depending on the goals and objectives of the event. TeamBuilding Unlimited will consult with the client prior to the event.

The completed Banners are composed of smaller panels that each team member executes in harmony with the other team members.... totally they will add up to one Banner for each team of 5-8—--the big ‘picture’. In all, each of the Banners must reflect the totality. Teams must strategize on theme as well as final positioning and any other decorative elements.

Each individual will design a portion of Banner that reflects their group, their team, their organization. There can be a competition at the end of the activity, and prizes will be awarded to the ‘best’ in several categories.

Depending on the way the individual team building Banner event is set up, each team might be asked to design a portion of the Banner (squared off) about their theme. Deciding on the theme of the Banner is part of the challenge.

TeamBuilding Unlimited works with your teams on color palette and technique—but the best part is the creativity of your participants.

This team-building event involves creativity, leadership, strategic thinking, sequenced planning and communication. The Banner is about Process, as much as art.

The final product is a visual documentation of the team's understanding and awareness of the theme they have selected and the process through which they went.

Goal: Separate parts that add up to one vision! The Big Picture! 

These Banners can adorn the workplace, the lobby, the cafeteria or...want to make this a Charity ChallengeThe completed Banners can be donated to hospitals, children's centers and schools.

The Sangria Challenge

The Sangria Challenge is the perfect team building activity to do after a day of heavy meetings... or it's great to begin the evening before or after a terrific dinner! or enjoy this fabulous event during your summer picnic!

TeamBuilding Unlimited will challenge your teams to make a very special alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink that includes White and Red Wine and lots of other "secret" ingredients.

Teams are 'instructed' in the basics of wine and Sangria before they begin to mix up their taste sensations. They are challenged to a trivia quiz to see how much information they have retained—but also to allow the winning teams to have the advantage of picking their ingredients first (the challenge portion).

The TeamBuilding Unlimited Sangria Challenge will tantalize your taste buds while challenging your knowledge and creativity. In addition to mixing lemons and lots of other fruits with wine and bubbly water and other "secret" ingredients, each team will develop a marketing plan for their drink, a new logo and slogan, a name for "their" winery and their specific sangria drink and so much more!

This is the perfect mixology team-building event!
