has built a successful cake design business over the past two decades.

Working with clients to cultivate a meaningful, beautiful cake design that makes their taste buds sing has been as much a cornerstone of my success as practical business knowledge. Some my daddy taught me on the family farm and some I learned the hard way. 

I love the clients, the sugar art, the baking...all of it. I have also learned to love the contracts, policies, and financials. All of this passion I bring to my custom wedding cake design clients, I also share with colleagues and students through my cake business masterclass workshops, the recipes that built my business, and my Southern dessert recipe blog, C'mon In the Kitchen.

I promise, you can be creative AND enjoy financial success in the kitchen and find out how to build a business just for you, like I did.

Minette Rushing from Savannah Custom Cakes was a baking and decorating goddess! The cake tasting was my favorite day in the planning process. I could have sampled her cakes and fillers all day. It was her birthday the day of my tasting and she made the most beautiful and delicious cake for us all to share. I went with the combination she chose for her birthday cake! Minette was kind, fun and helped immensely when narrowing down ideas. Our wedding day cakes turned out stunningly beautiful and delectable! I am still getting compliments!

Our cake was not the traditional cake due to our small size but it was outstanding! Minette was so easy to work with and was completely open to ideas other than what were featured on her site. She came highly recommended to us and they were not wrong. I will be ordering from her again the next time I am in Savannah.

Minette was fabulous to work with; executed the bride's wedding cake design to perfection including a requirement that all ingredients be dye free - so the bride could actually eat a piece. The cake was fantastic not only to the eye but to the tastebuds too. Everyone raved that it was the most delicious cake they ever tasted, and it was...

I absolutely love wedding cake and always make a point to have at least a bite at weddings I attend for good luck! I had an entire Pinterest board of stunning cakes, and in the end I couldn't decide between two designs so I let our cake designer, Minette Rushing surprise me. She loved the idea and said it was a designer's dream. It was beautiful, and it tasted as good as it looked, with vanilla bean cake filled with raspberry and white chocolate mousse. The cake was not only stunning but absolutely delicious. Everyone loved it and not a single piece was left except our topper.
