Enjoy some holiday cheer and friendly competition this holiday season with an exciting, inspiring team building activity complete with hot cocoa and gingerbread houses. Chef Doug will guide a gingerbread house decorating duel onsite at your office.
Before you start, Chef Doug will teach everyone the best methods for making indulgent homemade hot cocoa to get everyone in a cozy mood. Then learn the basics of decorating gingerbread houses with techniques such as flooding and piping royal icing. After that, you'll break into groups and compete to create the most enticing and creative gingerbread house in the room.
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.
