• 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 Seminars teaching has taken my sugar paste skills to a professional level. The techniques and intricate detailing taught by Minette Rushing have been invaluable to my growth as a cake artist. Giving me the skills to execute modern and sophisticated cakes to todays more discerning client.

  • 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.

The Last Wedding Cake Workshop for 2017

I LOVE wedding cakes and the Tiered Wedding Cake Workshop is my pride and Joy...and I do it a little differently than most.

I invite three cake makers into my private Studio for three days of intense teaching...nothing is off limits.

We talk business (think contracts, pricing, etc.,) design and inspiration, and techniques (think smooth buttercream with straight, sharp edges and perfect fondant.)

We work with cake (yes, real cake) and make a three tiered wedding cake.  All supplies are furnished for class use and a light lunch is provided each day.  You will leave with your wedding cake, our Wedding Cake Workshop booklet, and three months of free mentoring.

This workshop is only available to 3 participants twice a year.

Price is $1895.  To inquire about payment plans, please email us at:   savannahcustomcakes@gmail.com
