Welcome!

Thanks for visiting! Cakeable Charlotte is a non-profit organization which teaches baking skills and offers job preparation training to people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.

As a community which values differing abilities, Cakeable Charlotte strives to become an inclusive, empowering program.  Our goal is to partner with local organizations and employers to place trainees in work settings around the Charlotte area where they have the skills and opportunities to demonstrate that they are capable and everyone benefits!

We recently received our status as a charitable organization – 501(c)(3) – so we’re celebrating steps forward!

Currently, we’re seeking accessible kitchen space so that we can increase our training opportunities and add wholesale baking to our projects.

As we search for our kitchen, Cakeable offers customized training in our home kitchen or in the homes of our trainees.  This training is purposeful and fun, designed to enhance fine and gross motor skills, language development, attention and listening skills, ability to follow directions, peer interaction, health and wellness, and self-confidence.

Our training programs are funded through donations, and when our kitchen is approved for sales, we will add revenue from wholesale and custom orders.  By hiring Cakable Charlotte for your baking needs, you will receive quality products while supporting the empowerment of adults of all abilities in our city and letting them know they are indeed valuable and capable.

If you’d like to know more, please contact us at cakeableclt@gmail.com. We’d love to hear from you!

Gratefully,

John, Renee, and Caroline Ratcliffe
