• I have taken about a dozen classes at Custom Cakes and each one has been amazing. The instructors not only show you the technics but also make you feel comfortable to ask any questions. I love coming to a class were I'm not given a supply list because everything is provided for me to use. I went into custom cakes the first time as a stranger and left with a lifetime of friends and knowledge.

  • Sugar classes at Savannah Custom Cakes are some of the best in the business. Whether you’re new to cake decorating or an experienced professional, they have classes to suit all levels. Minette makes everything so easy, all you have to do is show up! There are always enough space and tools for each student so no one has to share, and there are printed hand-outs to take home. I’ve taken classes at other shops as well, and let me tell you…having everything organized and ready for you when you arrive is worth its weight in gold! I would recommend cake classes at Savannah Custom Cakes to anyone.
