Welcome!

Welcome to Cakeable Charlotte! As a nonprofit organization which is compelled by Christ’s love and fueled by faith, we offer baking classes and job skills training for students who have different abilities. We believe that every person has God-given value and potential, and we’re creating a place where everyone has the opportunity to contribute with purpose.

Seventy to eighty percent of people who live with intellectual and developmental disabilities are unemployed or underemployed. Baking skills are employable skills, and Cakeable’s mission is to equip our students to build bridges across the employment gap in Charlotte. We envision Charlotte as a community which wholeheartedly embraces the multiple benefits of including persons of all abilities in every arena of life.

Cakeable Charlotte’s program is housed in the Sweet Spot Kitchen where our students and employees learn, bake, and create in this amazing, inclusive environment.

Our classes are funded through donations and revenue from our sales at the Uptown Farmers Market, bake sales, and pop-up sales where our students practice customer service skills.

You can also find our baked goods at Julia’s Cafe and Books and our non-edible products (candles, sugar scrubs, and more) at Kimberli’s Place.

Please follow our Facebook and Instagram pages to see our students’ current menus and products!
