6 Team-Building Activities To Feed Your Sweet Tooth

Posted on Posted in Blog

Have a serious sweet tooth and want to incorporate it into your next corporate event? Well, you’re in luck, because there are many venues across the country that offer dessert-themed teambuilding activities, and could provide some much-needed inspiration when you’re planning your next corporate event. In recent years, there has been a significant shift to wellness-inspired teambuilding activities, ranging from office massages to yoga retreats, but according to a recent slideshow from BizBash.com, sometimes groups are in serious need of a decadent, sugar-laced outing. 1. Build-your-own éclairs Éclairs are a very popular dessert and are actually much easier to make than you might think. Starwood’s Le Meridien hotels have paired both these facts and offer build-your-own éclair activities that can accommodate groups of all size. 2. Doughnut and pie making You don’t have to leave doughnut making to Dunkin Donuts or pie making to grandma at Thanksgiving. The Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts, now offers doughnut and pie-making classes to promote team building in the workplace. 3. Milk, white, or dark chocolate? New York’s Voila Chocolat on the Upper West Side provides a corporate event space for chocolate-making classes led by owner Peter Moustakerski. Attendees are given their own workstations, and depending on their tastes, can choose to work with milk, white, or dark chocolate. 4. Let the competition heat up (or cool down) Sometimes the best way to promote team building is by introducing a little competition. The Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa offers a cookie-decorating competition as well as an ice cream creating competition where teams race against the clock to hand churn ice cream. Don’t worry… you get to eat everything when you’re all done. 5. Want s’more? S’mores are a popular bonfire treat that can be made just about anywhere. All you need are graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars. Making s’mores around an open fire is a warm, intimate setting for great conversation and idea sharing. 6. Get a taste of it all   There are many venues across the country that offer tasting tours of local businesses. One of the most well known is the Sweet Treat Trail in New York’s Finger Lakes region. Attendees can sample maple syrup, cotton candy, locally made biscotti, and ice cream, all while enjoying the scenic countryside. Treating employees and clients to a day of desserts and treats is a great way to bring people together. Need any more tips of the trade? We’re happy to help, contact Fourth Wall Events today!
