Hi there, and welcome to Cakeable Charlotte! We offer baking classes and job skills training for students who have different abilities. We believe that every person has 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 build bridges across the employment gap in Charlotte. Our dream is to start a hiring momentum in which our community fully recognizes the multiple benefits of employing persons of all abilities!
In 2019, Cakeable Charlotte received recognition as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. In October 2020, Cakeable Charlotte started teaching and baking in the Sweet Spot Kitchen in the Oakhurst neighborhood of Charlotte. We’re excited to offer our students the opportunity to learn, bake, and create in this amazing, inclusive environment.
Our classes are funded through donations and revenue from our sales at the Kings Drive Farmers Market, bake sales, and pop-up sales where our students practice customer service skills.
Please visit us on Saturdays during market season (April – October) at the Kings Drive Market!
Our recipes create opportunities, and your support is a vital part of that goal!
