Event Outline

Your event host welcomes guests as they arrive and  will quickly divide them in to teams, this is followed by a warm up activity piping names on opposing team hats, be careful as names written on hats are the names in which we will refer to them for the rest of the activity!

We have several practical and interactive quiz challenges all packed in to this event, please see below for an outline of each challenge. Please note not all activities may take place as it will depend on time restraints, however we will always include the most interactive and practical challenges first so nobody misses out on the messy fun!

The typical challenges available are:

Cup cake cup: a quick fire cupcake decorating challenge in which the chef will give a 5 minute demonstration icing and decorating cupcakes with snowmen, reindeers and Christmas trees,  its then over to the teams to recreate perfect cupcakes!

Quiz Round: Several quiz based rounds to include identifying Christmas chocolates celebrity chefs, brands and spices.

The Chocolatier:  Be warned this round is very chocolaty so roll up those sleeves for this action packed challenge, 50  festive chocolate snowball chocolates have to be made while the clock is ticking, a professional demonstration on ganache making, tempering and dipping techniques is given, teams must pay attention as the chef will not help once the demonstration has finished, judging will be based on taste, presentation and teamwork.

Its a wrap, each team is given christmas wrapping paper, the challenge is simple you must gift wrap your entire team, the team with the most coverage will win!

Christmas list, items will appear before selected team members they will have 30 seconds to write down as many items as they can remember on the Christmas list.

The Finale: To conclude we will give each team member a lump  of pasta dough, the size will depend upon how well they have done in the previous rounds, teams will then be armed with a pasta roller the rules are simple the longest single strand of tagliatelli wins(record currently stands at 6.2 meters)
