Birthday Parties at The Kitchen Croxley are a fun filled time where children learn or improve a skill, enjoy time with friends and family, and take part in a traditional afternoon tea party.
Suitable for children 7yrs and older. The party takes place in our Cake Decorating Studio. Every guest will bake six cupcakes. Whilst the cakes are baking we enjoy afternoon tea served on our pretty vintage china. The meal consists of sandwiches, crisps and cookies with squash or milk for anyone who doesn’t like tea to drink.
Depending on the age of the participants and the time available we then learn how to make sugar flowers or use ready made ones along with sweeties and sprinkles to decorate our cakes. We may spread or pipe on buttercream, or alternatively use glace icing as time and the age of the children allows.
£325.00 for up to ten children. This includes an eight inch round birthday cake decorated with buttercream and sugarpaste, the birthday boy or girl’s name and spots/stars/flowers/hearts in your choice of colour. Trimmed with ribbon and presented on a coloured cake drum, we will arrange for the candles to be lit and the cake to be cut at the end of the party if you wish. Alternatively you may choose to take it home.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you cater for more than ten children in the Studio? Possibly, if you are comfortable with there being slightly less room to move around. Alternatively, we may be able to accommodate your party in our tearoom. This would usually be on a Sunday from 11am – 1pm, before we open for business. Additional children up to a maximum of 20 are charged at £25.00 a head.
Can you cater for children under seven years old? Again, we may be able to accommodate your party in the tearoom. This would usually be on a Sunday from 11am – 1pm. This is because the younger children are not tall enough to reach the worktops in the Studio.
Cake Decorating Party
This party is extremely popular with slightly older children – from approximately nine years old – who enjoy working in our well equipped Studio under the supervision of one of our Cake Artists.
We provide six pre-baked cupcakes, bowls of buttercream, piping bags and nozzles. We make toppers from modelling paste, and mould flowers, butterflies and other cute items before assembling them all.
The participants use lustre powders to enhance the colour and appearance of their flowers, and we will be sure to have glitter and sparkles on hand to add to the finished effect!
The party guests enjoy Afternoon Tea which consists of sandwiches, crisps and cookies with squash or milk for anyone who doesn’t like tea to drink.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can we invite more/less friends? We offer a package which includes a birthday cake, tuition from an experienced cake artist, space in our Studio and use of all our tools and equipment. At less busy times we may be able to cater for slightly smaller parties – please ask to discuss. Space in The Studio is limited but we can accommodate twelve if you are comfortable with slightly less room to move around. For parties of less than ten and for additional guests the cost is £30.00 a head.
The Kitchen is a working environment, it is important that the children understand the need to listen well and do as instructed. There is a short talk on Health and Safety at the start of the party and all children must be present for this. Please ask your guests to arrive fifteen minutes prior to the party start time so that we can begin promptly. We will always aim to finish on time so reserve the right to change or curtail some activity if we are unable to start on time.
Allergens such as nuts, eggs and gluten are present – please discuss if you have any concerns.
We can reserve space for you and your guests in the Tearoom whilst the children enjoy their activity. Please let us know in advance how many parents you expect to stay. They can purchase drinks and cakes or you can request a tab to be settled at the end of the party. Please be aware that if the shop is open there will be other members of the public present, for an additional £50.00 an hour the shop can be closed and you and your guests may enjoy exclusive use of the premises.
Dates fill up very fast but a 20% deposit will secure your chosen date. Bookings are subject to availability and we recommend contacting us at least six weeks in advance to discuss available times. If you would like to read reviews of parties from happy customers just click here!
