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.
