If you’re looking for a creative date idea, or a fun, sensory activity for the whole family, book in to BYOC - Bake Your Own Cookies!

For just $19 per person or $49 for a family of four, you will be given The Cookie Project’s signature cookie dough made with Lewis Road Creamery butter, a range of toppings to create your own unique flavour combo, and choose from over 1,000 different shaped cutters to make the cookie of your dreams.

The Cookie Project’s skilled bakers will also be there to provide lessons and assistance when you need their expert help.

It’s the perfect Saturday activity for friends, couples, family and kids.

Win My Cookie Challenge
Price: $49pp (must book in advance)
Time: 1:30PM - 2:30PM and 3PM - 4PM

In this world-first baking experience, you’ll get a guided tour of The Cookie Project’s home in the iconic Eden Park, learn the basics of making their famous cookies, and then challenge their top bakers.

If you win, you’ll get a bag of freshly-made cookies from their bakers – but if you lose, you must accept defeat by purchasing at least one Win My Cookie Challenge ticket (at $5) for someone else to experience it and break down more social stigma.

Through this unique experience, you will gain a better understanding of disability inclusion in a fun and educational environment.
