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.
Cakeable Charlotte was founded in 2019 to equip persons who have disabilities with specific and transferable job skills within the context of a bakery. Our founders, teachers, and Board of Directors are passionate about maximizing every person’s capabilities and bridging the disability employment gap in the Charlotte area.
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. We envision Charlotte as a community which wholeheartedly embraces the multiple benefits of including persons of all abilities in every arena of life.
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.
We believe that baking skills are functional, employable, and community-building skills, and our students and employees learn, contribute, and move into opportunities which enhance independence and inclusion.
