Cake Experiences! Hen Parties - Bridal Showers - Birthday Parties - Parent & Child - Corporate
We are thrilled to announce our Cake Experiences are back!
I am so excited to tell you all about our Cake Experiences.
But first to give you a little history. I started Vanilla Pod Bakery Cake Experiences back in 2012, I would travel to peoples homes and teach them what I knew about cake decorating and baking like a professional.
These events evolved into hosting lots of hen parties, team building events for offices, and workshops at primary and secondary schools. I even hosted monthly cake decorating evening classes at a local coffee shop in the centre of Cheltenham for a few years too.
Each experience was fantastic, I got to meet so many amazing people and it was fabulous to watch their cake skills grow before my very eyes.
As the business grew as a whole, we could only take on a very limited amount of Cake Experiences per year, and then covid hit. So I decided to wind this side of the business down completely, and focus on Vanilla Pod Bakery creating cakes for birthdays, celebrations, and weddings when they were allowed.
However, it has now been three years, and thankfully covid is now behind us. So I am absolutely thrilled to announce that our Cake Experiences are back!

We have quite a few options when it comes to our experiences. Our flagship Vanilla Pod Bakery event is our awesome Battle of the Cupcakes
, a brilliant interactive cupcake decorating game. We can also host smaller cake experiences, perfect for one-to-one classes or intimate parties.
Guests on a Battle of the Cupcakes Cake Experience Party
Battle of the Cupcakes is a fantastic afternoon of creative competitive fun!
Two teams battle it out to be crowned the champion of cupcake decorating! Each person has 6 naked cupcakes to decorate and each team can use heaps of buttercream, a rainbow of food colourings, piping bags, pretty sprinkles, yummy sugar paste and cutters to make the ultimate cupcakes.
We will provide a short demo to begin with and guidance throughout. At the end of the experience, one team is crowned the winner and everyone gets to take home their own yummy cupcakes in a professional bakery box.
You are welcome to bring your own alcohol to the event and we can happily decorate the room with personalised party decorations and balloons.
We can host Battle of the Cupcakes in our lovely cake studio (minimum of 8 guests and maximum of 20 guests) in Cheltenham or we can drive to a location of your choice (minimum of 8 guests).
Also watch this space for a DIY version! Coming soon!
Guests at a Smaller Cake Experience Workshop
Smaller Cake Experience Workshops
We also host smaller Cake Experience workshops, and these fabulous workshops can be tailored to your wishes. Within our small team at Vanilla Pod Bakery we have a wide skill set that we can teach, from sugar models, exquisite sugar flowers, baking, and beautiful cake decorating.
Over the years, I have found our most popular Cake Experience workshops to be:
Roses and Swirls Cupcake Decorating
Floral Buttercream Cupcake Decorating
Two Tiered Dried Pressed Flower Wedding Cake Creation
Two Tiered Semi Naked Wedding Cake Creation
Cupcake Baking and Decorating
These smaller workshops are for a minimum of 1 guest to a maximum of 6 guests. The pricing depends on number of guests and the workshop chosen. They are wonderful intimate events, that are very hands on, students leave with skills that they can use time and time again.
These events, are a lot more tame than our Signature Battle of the Cupcakes, and are great for Bridal Showers/smaller Hen Parties, Baby Showers, Pre Wedding Days out, Birthday Parties, Friendship Catch Up Days, Mother & Child Days, Father & Child Days, as well as One-to-One Cake Experiences.
