Frequently Asked Questions

Do you supply party favours?

The children will take their creations and a chef hat they have decorated themselves home. Party bags can be supplied at an additional cost of $5 per child which include 1 cooking utensil, stickers and a variety of lollies/chocolates.

My child has an allergy, do you cater for children with allergies?

We cater for any allergies! Upon booking we will ask for details on any children with allergies/intolerances or dietary restrictions and ask the parents of the child to complete a form for our records. We will cater for the child to the best of our abilities on the day by supplying alternatives to ensure they don’t feel left out. Rest assured, all of our recipes and snack food is nut free.

Do the parents have to stick around for the party?

Feel free to take this time as a well-earned break! We try to finish off the party with the cake cutting and singing of happy birthday. If you arrive back just before the end of the party, you’ll be just in time to join in on the birthday cake celebrations.

If parents do wish to stay, we are able to make available antipasto platters and hot/cold drinks at an additional cost.

Do you supply a birthday cake?

When it comes to the birthday cake, for most of our parties (excluding the cookie recipes for the under 6-year-olds) we will supply cupcakes to the guests to decorate themselves. At the end of the party, we will place them on a stand, throw some candles in and voila a birthday cake they have created themselves! The children usually love this idea. If you are after something in particular, we have partnered with a local cake designer who can whip up something special or you are always more than welcome to supply your own cake.

Do you have public liability insurance and working with children checks?

Yes and yes! We ensure all of our staff have up to date WWCC.

What exactly does the party entail?

The children will arrive, put on a colourful apron and head on over to our cooking table where they will begin decorating their very own chef hat. Once everyone has arrived and has their chef hats on, the cooking will begin! Each child will prepare their very own portion of the recipe chosen in advance.

While this is baking/setting in the fridge we will entertain ourselves with cooking related games, eating snack food and decorating cupcakes (not included in the cookie recipe parties). We then end the party with the cutting of the cake/cupcakes and singing happy birthday before everyone is on their way with their creations to take home.

Do we need to supply anything?

If you’re coming to us, then you don’t have to bring a thing! If we’re coming to you, it would be great if you could supply a couple of tables for the children to cook on, if you don’t have any large enough we can bring along our own. They can be set up outside (weather permitting) or inside it’s totally up to you, and we will need access to your oven, fridge  & running water. All other equipment, ingredients, food, drinks, aprons… you name it, is supplied by us!

Do you supply the invitations?

We do! Upon booking confirmation, a PDF copy of the invitations will be emailed to you, all you have to do is fill in each child’s name.
