From £750+VAT


75-90 mins




Clarence Belleville needs you to construct the best cake you can for the cake auction but which team can do Belleville proud? Splitting into teams of 5-6 people, you’ll complete various challenges to earn “cake coins” over the course of 70-90 minutes. Can you spot the counterfeit baking brands? Complete the redacted recipes? Draw the most convincing cake?

Using your hard earnt coins, you’ll then enter auction rounds, bidding for different cake decorations! Expect things to get loud and competitive. Watch out for the Cake in Your Face cards and try not to lose money to another cake company! After all the puzzle and auction rounds, the Belleville’s will judge the cakes and the best decorated cake will take the crown! We promise there are lots of props in this experience, to make it super hands-on and bring everyone together post-pandemic!

This game is the perfect combination of teamwork and high energy as it alternates between puzzles and auction rounds. A prize will be awarded at the end for the winning team so maybe you”ll get to eat your own sweet treat… who knows? Please note all the cakes that are decorated are made from polystyrene and felt so definitely not edible! All you will need in your venue is a table for each team’s cake, and a decoration table for all the options up for grabs! Travel fees are not included in the price but please provide your exact location, so we can give you the best price.

If your team have a sweet tooth, why don’t you also try our Chocolate Making Challenge?

How long does The Cake Auction activity last for?

This activity usually lasts between 75-90 minutes but this does not include set-up or take-down time.

What size groups can be catered for?

Group sizes of up to 80 people are welcome to book The Cake Auction but we do require a minimum booking of 10 people.

How far in advance do we need to book The Cake Auction?

To put it simply, as far in advance as possible. We do have a limited number of set-ups meaning we can only perform so many each day in each location. Get in touch as soon as you are ready to book!

Do we decorate real cakes during this activity?

Sadly not! Instead we use polystyrene bases that resemble cakes and felt to decorate them as this makes them easy to move around – can you imagine how messy the cakes would be after travelling round the UK?
