Thanks for visiting! Cakeable Charlotte is a nonprofit organization that offers baking classes and job skills training for students who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our core belief is that every person has potential, and our community benefits when everyone has the opportunity to contribute with purpose. Baking skills are employable skills, and Cakeable’s mission is to build bridges across the employment gap in Charlotte for people who live with disabilities.
In 2019, we received our status 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.
Cakeable Charlotte’s training program is intentionally designed to enhance communication and motor skills, peer interaction, employability, and confidence.
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!
