Booked London Big Bake (LBB) as a fun group activity for my 30th Birthday and had an amazing time. At first I was worried that pop cakes for the June bake wouldn’t be worth the cost per person but Aimee nicely talked me through what to expect on the day and reassured me that my guests and I would have a great time and we definitely did.

The staff were very accommodating even When some of my friends and I arrived late. The atmosphere was great with music, the competitive feel of being on the Great British Bake Off and best of all each person got to take some cake home.

Even after the session, I realised I had left an item, this was quickly found and posted off to me, showing quality service provided.

I highly recommend London Big Bake for people looking to have a great day out with family and friends. Thanks for making my 30th special x

I couldn’t believe how well organised this was. We were lucky to get Fairdah as our head baker - she made it so much fun. Her team were supportive and helpful and ensured all 12 teams produced pretty decent cakes within 80 mins! I was surprised how clean and efficiently the team worked. The final 10 mins were for Fairdah to slice and judge our offerings with the top 3 being announced! There were so many toppings, spices and flavour offerings to choose from, very clear recipe sheets to follow and clean modern equipment at each work station. Against the clock you can really appreciate how stressful this would be for those on the TV show! The event was covid friendly and I would recommend it for couples, friends, colleagues, families - anyone with a competitive streak! You are truly against the clock, then given a box to take your cake home in at the end. Such value for money in my opinion!

I attended this with a group of friends. We purchased it as a birthday gift for one of us. It’s located at the rear of The Castle Pub so we had a lovely meal and drink beforehand. It’s a bit of a journey from central London so we stayed nearby. So the experience is in a tent like the normal bake off and you work in pairs. This month you have to make a woolly hat cake but they change that round through the year. The staff are super helpful and the instructions are very clear. You get 80 minutes - it flies by - and your bakes are judged at the end. It’s a really unique night out and as a pretty below average baker I still really enjoyed it!

The experience was everything it should be. The tent and work stations we spotless and gave off all the right feelings of a fun baking competition. Nyssa our head baker was brilliant, very helpful and entertaining.
Having baked a good few times at home and seen similar style baking events on TV it was very surprising how the time constraints within the allocated time really did come in to play.
I could really see how doing this in groups would add another dimension but as a couple 'against' strangers, looking at other peoples flavour choices etc. we really felt the group competition aspect along side our individual 'against the clock' challenge.
I would highly recommend this experience to anyone. An experience that is deserving of its many fantastic reviews. We enjoyed every minute and even learned some skills to improve our home baking too...

I went to The Big London Bake for a second time last night, and it was another brilliant experience!
This month, 10% of all ticket sales goes to charity to help the injured animals in the Australian wildfires, so the theme is Australian animals. My team decided to make a platypus, because they're the weirdest looking animals!
As always, all material was provided and pre-measured, so we got to get to work immediately. All teams are provided identical recipe and instruction cards and have 70 minutes to complete their work.
It's a lot of fun to race against the clock to create a unique and fun cake while the big bake elves tidy up your work station all around you!
We had a great time and were lucky enough to win this time round! Team star bakers!

The only thing that's a little disappointing is that no refreshments are offered (a soft drink or even cup of water would go a long way)

Our son bought us this experience as a Christmas present and we absolutely loved it.
It was so much fun.
The head baker was great, he made sure that everyone was okay with their bakes, he was encouraging and even helped out a few people who got a bit stuck.
The whole thing was lighthearted and we loved it.

Firstly I would like to thank you all so much for having my family and friends for my bake off, and for getting all 26 of us back on track since our original booking for my birthday in May.

Last week was absolutely phenomenal due to Farieda, Aimee, and the team who looked after us from start to finish. We all had so much fun and that wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing staff you had, who really did care about making my evening special and making me feel like it was still my birthday 5 months later.

Faridae made a real effort to make sure everyone was looked after, enjoying themselves, and really made me feel special by going above and beyond for me. She is a real credit to your team and I would happily book back in again if she was my host.

Aimee has also been so lovely, thoughtful, and kind throughout dealing with my entire booking, numerous questions and requests.

My entire party went home over the moon with their results and the amazing fun they had. From my social media responses I have had so many messages, comments, and likes on my entire story which has been so much so that I’ll be creating a Youtube vlog of my birthday evening at The Big London Bake for all to see.

It was lovely to meet Adam the owner tonight also, you should be so proud of your business and I will definitely be back.

What a great idea and great experience. It really does give you a slice of the Bake Off experience. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, helpful if required and enthusiastic.
You get 1hr 20 to Make, Bake and Decorate something, i think the challenge changes each month. Clear instructions means that even a first time baker can get involved and enjoy themselves.
Would work for a hen do, friend activity or even a work activity. We did it for a Mothers Day treat with family.
LOVED IT!

Visited on 13/12/20 for my sisters bday with her and her friends. The experience was great everything was neatly organised and instructions were clear.

I had to bake alone and I want to personally thank Mel for her support. The customer service was excellent she spent time going round to each of the groups to ensure they were okay and had what they needed but also acknowledged that I was alone so spent extra time helping me.

Additionally she was in the tooting branch but was from Birmingham not that we had known she owned it!

The review was the icing on the cake Mel really brought her character to the judging and we were all laughing and smiling at the end.

It was a great experience perfect for friends family couples or work.

I booked out the entire marquee for my birthday with the wonderful help of Adam & Eloise, and it was one of the best events I have ever hosted for my birthday!!. The Marquee was safe to book for 30 of my family and friends with myself included, to have our own bake off. Faridah, our head baker along with the help of Christopher, Rob and Kallie were an incredible team ensuring that everyone throughout the event was happy and safe even if they had had no previous baking experience. They allowed for us to have our own music playing through the speakers, (Faridah has an A1 playlist if you aren't fussed with the music choice) which meant that the event was that little bit more personalised. The energy of the team and their humour really made my event one to remember and one I'd do over and over again if I had the chance. Faridah and her team made us all feel as though we had done a fantastic job, (even when some cakes were an utter shambles) and the tent was electric. When it was time to go I was genuinely gutted but so happy with how the event came out. Thank you so so much to The Big London Bake for an event to remember!
