Charm City Cakes August cake decorating classes

School is still in session for the rest of the summer at Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, MD. Students ages 14 and up can learn a variety of cake decorating techniques and hone their skills in classes led by the bakery’s veteran decorators. August kicks off with Charm City Cakes’ popular wedding cake workshop, followed by classes with summer-inspired beach and BBQ cake themes, and more. About one third of the proceeds from a special rainbow animal print cupcake class will benefit the Shirts For A Cure project, which donates 100% of their funds to the Syrentha J. Savio Endowment, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to underprivileged women who cannot afford expensive breast cancer medicine and therapy.

Vegan and gluten-free cake options are also available, as well as private lessons, small group classes, bachelorette parties, team building, and gift certificates.

ABOUT CHARM CITY CAKES:

Charm City Cakes was founded in 2002 by Chef Duff Goldman, an innovative and boundary-pushing baker. The Baltimore based establishment’s popularity grew and Duff and staff were approached by the Food Network to star in Ace of Cakes. The show ran for ten seasons in six years and is still wildly popular not only in reruns, but in over 40 countries worldwide. The twice-nominated James Beard Foundation baker expanded the business in 2011 to Los Angeles, CA with Charm City Cakes West, as well as a DIY cake studio, Duff’s Cakemix.
