Bake for A Cause
Corporate Baking Team Building Singapore
Touch lives with one baked treat at a time. Come and join Bake for A Cause – A baking team building in Singapore.
Bake for A Cause is Palate Team Building’s widely popular CSR activity. A baking team bonding activity, Bake for A Cause is highly suitable for companies looking to give back to the community.
While fostering teamwork and spirit, your team will bake and donate their cookies and muffins to a charitable organisation of your choice or The Food Bank.
You can also opt for a 3-course meal cooked by the chefs at Palate Sensations before or after the baking session.
As a team that walks the talk, our team also held a Bake for A Cause as one of our corporate baking team building and give-back activities at the start of the pandemic.
We baked over 1200 muffins and gave them away to frontliners in various hospitals. These include not only the medical staff but also the security personnel. The smiles on their faces were priceless for us. The effort and resources we devoted into preparing the ingredients, mixing them together, popping them in the oven, and packaging them with messages of inspiration written on the bags, were all worth it. This was our simple way to thank our front liners for keeping up the fight against COVID-19, which two years ago was still a very much unknown disease.
As one of our corporate baking team building activities, Bake For A Cause can also teach your team the essentials of baking. Baking requires the discipline of precision. It is like chemistry performed in the kitchen and not a lab. Precisely measuring ingredients, mixing, and using the right temperature are needed to consistently achieve the best results.
The principles learned in baking can be applied in corporate leadership and team cohesion as well.
Try skipping an ingredient, for example, a baking soda, and you will see how a muffin for example would not look as fluff as it should be.
A dash of salt can help bring out the taste of caramel because flavours need to be contrasted. This can be said of inspiring diversity in your teams as well – only by harnessing the diversity of perspectives can the best ideas crystallise.
What lesson can be learned about the importance of waiting for the oven to be pre-heated before popping the batter in? How can results differ when team keeps their pulse on the best timings to launch a project, a communication, or a marketing campaign? So many lessons can be learned from baking that apply to better business leadership and that inspire great team unity.
Above all, Bake for A Cause is about having an opportunity to bring teams to work together to make a difference, to put a smile on someone’s face, and to spark joy.
