Bakers are you ready? Enjoy a baking adventure and escape room in one! Think you have what it takes to be a Star Baker? This delicious escape room includes 13 challenges to solve in an immersive, fun-filled atmosphere. Parts of the recipes and clues to the answers are on the wall, kitchen counter, or in envelopes players open as the game goes on. During the game, players make brownies and brownie frosting! Clue difficulty is paced so that the dessert will be ready to eat at the end of the game. There are TWO clue paths players can split up to work on, which means every player is hands on baking and solving! Ages 8 and up is recommended, plus there are hints and detailed solutions included to help younger players (and to make the game stress-free)! 6 players is ideal, if you have more players, you can print it out again and have the groups compete for even more fun! Game play is about 60 minutes. Are you up for a decadent challenge?
What's the story?
As a contestant in the Great Bake-Off Show, you’ve been outbaking other contestants for several episodes. No soggy bottom on yesterday’s cherry pie, and your almond biscuits made a judge exclaim in delight, “Scrumptious!” But today, when you arrive at your station, everything is a disaster! Your equipment and ingredients are topsy-turvy. Your Perfectly Frosted Brownies recipe... has splashes of vanilla blotting out most of the words! Producers and contestants alike are so focused on filming as the introduction begins that they don’t see your predicament. Can you possibly escape being eliminated? There are some clues on the counter that might help you save your bake. You look up to see the presenter tell the contestants, “Bakers, you have one hour. On your mark, get set, BAKE!”

Fun game. The kids (11-12) had trouble reading the initial scripted font, 😂 and one of the numbers on the receipt (this might have been a printer issue?) but otherwise had a blast. They did go over the hour though.

The quality was fine. I did not know the recipe had honey in it and there was an allergy.

This turned out so great! Did this with 5y and 9y and great auntie. I let the kids each pick their team from the assembled adults and assigned great uncle, the professional gamer, as the lock master. The puzzles on the “frosting team” gave 5y plenty to do, as she got to cut things out and match pictures and write the codes. 9y was willing to do this just for the puzzles to solve, so when she found out there were REAL brownies involved the “squee”bordered on ear-piercing. The brownies came out a little sweet for my preference, but still good and a small enough batch (we used 8x8) that between the 6 of us we polished them off before our visit was done. Highly recommend!

We had a lot of fun playing this and the brownies were great!
