DS will be 9 in October and wants a GBBO party....note not a THEMED party, he wants to actually do GBBO.

So I guess we could have 3 friends over, give everyone a recipe and ingredients and let them get on with it, then the 4 children can all judge each other? Decorate the house in British bunting, while cake/biscuits/whatever are cooking they can have the birthday tea (I dunno....cream tea themed?!)

If there's only 4 of them I think we can cope, we have two ovens so could do up to 6 maybe. Could get them all an apron or a baking set to take home....

Does this sound completely wanky?!?

Can I come?

I would keep it really simple, like rice Krispie cakes with various optional toppings like, chic chips marshmallows etc, that way they will all make something delicious. Plus no egg everywhere .

Sounds great. If you did muffin pizzas and then some cake or biscuit, that would also be the food sorted! My 8 yr old would love it.

Oooooh making their own pizza dough for pizza as well as pud is a great idea!

You could pre make a sponge cake for each of them to decorate for the showstopper and they could take that home.
Pizza dough with toppings is a great idea too xx

I did this with my kids club. Each group got basic ingredients and a recipe for fairy cakes, plus icing sugar. Then there were a whole lot of extras, they got to pick 3 each and had to decide what went in their cakes and what went on them. I may have gone slightly ott with "bakers, you have x mins before your cakes need to be in the oven" etc, but they loved it!

Cakes were judged on taste, appearance, and best overall.

Nick that's great ot hear you've done this - how many children did you have?

chocolatecake I love the idea that they make pizza dough, then do a sweet bake of some description and the show stopper is decorating

I had about 15 kids (and 3 leaders as well as me!!!!) and they were in 3 groups. They made the cake mixture as a group, but decorated their own cakes individually. With less kids they could do their own cake mix too. It was a lot of fun, and the boys enjoyed it as much as the girls. I think the competitive element helped them take it seriously!!

I did something similar for my DD's birthday and they made cup cakes and then decorated them. They loved it!
