Event Outline

Virtual Christmas Bake Off, in a nutshell how does it work?  

Your guests will be entertained by our Chefs in a magical Virtual Christmas Bake Off from professional kitchen studios. Each Studio has 3 to 4 cameras for high end virtual experiences ensuring guests wont miss a moment, everyone has a front row seat with lots of giggles and icing promised.  Organizers sometimes wish to  log on 5 minutes before activities start to meet the Chef and share any birthdays or fun facts about guests with our team to include during the bake off.   On logging in guests will be welcomed by our team and engaged and inspired for 1.5 – 2 hours for Christmas Baking fun, full of hilarious moments and interactive baking demonstrations.  For our virtual Christmas Bake Off 2 or 3 bakes are included example are Christmas themed cupcakes, Gingerbread Houses, Mince Pies and our famous Christmas pudding chocolates.  For the Ultimate branding, we can send branding decoration for cupcakes.

Do you want to include a competitive element?

Why not turn up the heat and add a competitive element,  our chef will then score on presentation and creative use of ingredients.  Will you and your colleagues rise to the challenge?

Large Groups 70 – 2000

For large groups we have often had 3 or 4 studios running at the same time, this is ideal if guests have different preferences and large numbers.  In simple terms all guests would join together too meet and welcomed by our Team and your CEO, they would then be sent to different Studios for there virtual experiences and then magically all brought back together at the end of there activity to the main Studio to share highlights, award ceremony and goodbyes.  A good combination of 4 different Studios:

Studio 1 Gingerbread Houses

Studio 2 Virtual Chocolate Making

Studio 3 Virtual Cheese & Wine tasting

Studio 4 Virtual Christmas Culinary Games
