Traditionally birthday parties were occasions where family, friends and relatives gathered together at someone’s house to celebrate. This basic idea remains intact, but today there are new ways to enjoy birthday parties—like a culinary cooking party at The Stocked Pot Cooking School! There are plenty of awesome reasons to throw a birthday cooking party. Besides being fun and tasty, they serve a purpose–cooking together is truly a bonding experience. Beverages are included in each of our kids’ birthday parties. Sweet Iced Tea, Lemonade and chilled water.
Here are some of the exciting kids’ birthday parties we offer:
Hands-On Dessert Party and T.V. Food Show Competitions
Hands-On Cupcake Wars
You and your guests compete in a cupcake decorating competition. We split your group into two teams. Each team decorates already baked cupcakes in each of three rounds. Competitors take part in two challenges over the course of the 2 hours.
In round one, each person in each team must decorate one cupcake that is judged on theme alone.
In the second round each person in each team decorates two cupcakes and isjudged on both taste and presentation.
In the final round, each person in each team decorates three cupcakes. The team who the judges determine created the best cupcakes presentation in all three rounds takes home the winning gold medal for everyone in the winning team. Everyone in second place is given beautiful red, white and blue State Fair style ribbons with a culinary emblem.
Hands-On Nailed It! Competition
Two teams will compete in the “Nailed It!” challenge and will prepare two styles of cakes.
Nailed It! was inspired by the craze of people trying and failing to make elaborate cakes they found on the Internet. Two teams of amateur bakers will attempt to recreate edible masterpieces for the Gold Medal prize. Competitors take part in two challenges over the course of the 2 hours.
The first challenge is called “Baker’s Choice,” where the contestants pick one of three existing confectionery treats and try to recreate it. They have 30 minutes to create the baked cupcake.
The winners of this challenge get a special prize and will use edible gold spray paint to spray their white cloth chef’s hats gold—just like on TV!
In the second challenge, “Nail It or Fail It,” contestants have only 45 minutes to recreate a showstopping cake. Each team will decorate one two-layer ten-inch baked cake as a team.
Each team receives a “Panic Button” which allows them to get three minutes of assistance from one of the judges. The worst performing team from the first challenge gets a second button called “Freezer Burn” which forces opponents to freeze in place for three minutes!
Cake Sculpting Challenge
Cake Sculpting is a delicious and creative birthday party activity for kids of all ages. We split your group into two teams. Each team decorates already baked sheet cakes. Competitors take part in this exciting challenge over the course of one and a half hours. Creativity is the key to success as the two teams work to build a confectionary masterpiece. You will need to build a multi-layer themed cake. Each team will use a picture of a design to help them create their own cake design. They start with a variety of flavored sheet cakes and start cutting the cakes and the decorating begins! There are no rules here; it’s a no holds barred competition. Different colored icings, different colored gels, edible spray paints, an assortment of candy and cookies, rice crispy treats, sprinkles, popsicle sticks, and much more are provided to enhance their creativity.
When the masterpieces are complete, each team will take a Cake Tour and see all the wonderful cake creations. This fun birthday cake decorating challenge event is both delicious and fun; cake sculpting is the perfect event for making lots of wonderful memories with friends.
The team which the judges determine created the best cake sculpture presentation takes home the winning gold medal for everyone in the winning team. Everyone in second place is given beautiful red, white and blue State Fair style ribbons with a culinary emblem.
