It’s the time of year when everyone needs a dessert to take to a party. Fortunately, this month’s Girls Night Out at Cakes By U offers you the opportunity to hang out with your friends, express yourself creatively and leave with a beautifully decorated cake to take to your next social event!

The store’s popular Frost and Sip classes are held 7 – 9 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Bring your best friends, your favorite beverages — alcoholic or non-alcoholic — and a few snacks. Professional decorators will guide you step-by-step as you create a beautiful cake to take home and enjoy later. You can choose to decorate a 5-inch ($25) or 8-inch ($35) double-layer cake. Classes can be booked up until 5 p.m. each day, but must be booked in advance. Go to to look at their calendar and see pictures of each night’s cake design.

“Your cake doesn't have to look exactly like ours,” said Kate McAnally, general manager. “Customers love that they can be creative and make their own designs.”

If you forgot to plan in advance or prefer a daytime outing, the shop has open studios where you can drop in and decorate cupcakes or cakes noon – 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. A kit includes everything you need to put your own creative decorations on cakes or cupcakes.

Cakes by U is located at 637 Congaree Road Suite A in Greenville.
