Introduction

Another of our creative activities, there is simply no limit to what can be done with a cupcake. All you need is a can-do attitude, a small amount of creativity, and a team armed with icing and away you go, so much fun but be warned – it can be very messy!

Event Outline

We will give the group an expert demonstration on how to make perfect cupcakes, this will be followed by decorating with butter cream, royal icing, piping techniques, modelling with sugar paste, and colouring techniques! All accompanied with hand-outs packaging and recipes for guests to take home!

Want a competitive edge?

Teams will have to create their own cupcake brand with a niche concept complete with their iced cupcakes and packaging ready for us to judge. We will be looking for a good use of skills, teamwork, originality, and flair to win! We will give bonus points for company branding or ethics that are brought in to the cakes or sales pitch. There will be a vast range of colours, powders, glitters sweets and treats to use, there is simply no limit to what theme can be done with a cupcake.
