Team Building Activity: Holiday Cheer Cookie Decorating Competition

Bring some holiday cheer and friendly competition to this festive team building activity at your place. Chef Daniel will guide you in this decorating duel that will invigorate creativity and improve collaboration and communication skills in a sugary-sweet way.

First, your team will make homemade hot cocoa to sip on as you decorate. Then, Chef Daniel will teach the group how to master frosting cookies like a pastry-maker, including the proper techniques for flooding and piping your design. After the proper preparation, you'll break into groups to decorate gingerbread and sugar cookies. Work together to create festive designs to present to the judges to see who will be crowned the Cookie Decorating Master.


All necessary utensils will be provided by the chef. The venue is required to have access to sinks nearby, tables set-up to prep and garbage containers. Chefs are able to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes in advance.
