According to food historians, the ancient Egyptians were the first culture to show evidence of advanced baking skills. Cake technique and skill set have come a long way since then and your team will have the opportunity to showcase some of those modern-day cake skills during our team building cake decorating challenge in Mexico. Teams will be given an introduction into the art of cake decorating; however, the real fun begins after the instructions and teams incorporate their own inspiration and creative design decorating their own cakes with customized themes of your choice.

Here’s how it works…

  • 1Teams will be provided with basic decorating materials in their team kits. In order to receive more materials, they must complete a Legend of Cake quiz.
  • 2For each correct answer they will receive credits to the “Candy Store”. It will be up to teams to budget, prioritize, and utilize their funds effectively to make purchases at the Candy Store.
  • 3Once the time has elapsed, participants will be asked to score each other’s cakes. The team which has the highest score at the end of the event will be declared the Cake Legends and will be awarded the highly coveted Golden Fondant award. Once the awards have concluded, teams will get to have their cake and eat it too!

The Perfect Activity for Groups Who Are:


Your team loves working and interacting with all departments and socializing is part of something bigger than just a causal conversation. Your team understands the importance of taking a step back and seeing the “big picture” and how important relationships are in business.


Working together comes naturally to your team and they understand that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. The acronym T.E.A.M resonates strongly, and they know everyone will achieve greater results with a team first mentality. “Together. Everyone. Achieves. More” (T.E.A.M)


Always quick to come up with outside-of-the-box solutions, your group welcomes any activity that can help them think creatively and have some fun.

Employees will love getting to know one another in a fun and creative environment. Socializing and learning more about each other outside of the office while participating in our team building cake decorating challenge during their time in Mexico helps support healthy work relations.



“We are an Australian based conference and incentive manager with over 20 years experience in designing and delivering events all over the world. In June this year we had a high end group in the Riviera Maya for eight nights. These were well traveled guests we have been spoiling for many years with the unimagined and unexpected – definitely not your average group and one which is tough to keep engaged.

Jordan and Estefania put their hearts and souls into finding innovative solutions to our rather unusual requests and helped us deliver yet, another “best event ever”. If you are looking for a team in Mexico to work with you, rather than for you, your search is over “
