    Spectacular from start to finish!

    If you’re looking for someone to create your dream wedding cake to perfection, look no further than Anita! From our initial tasting, we knew Anita was going to be a fabulous partner – her glowing personality and creativity immediately shined through. While we wanted a classic buttercream frosting with delicate flowers on the exterior of the cake, we wanted to add some fun flair to the inside layers to make it both memorable and delicious. Anita rattled off dozens of fun combinations she’d done in the past – and we decided to go with two tiers of: vanilla butter cake with 2 layers raspberry jam schmear with vanilla buttercream and fresh raspberries and 1 layer of lemon curd, and two tiers of: double chocolate cake with 2 layers of Oreo buttercream and 1 layer of bourbon buttercream, all with a vanilla buttercream lined exterior with fresh florals… and it came out perfectly! Guests raved about it – and my husband and I are eagerly counting down the days to our anniversary so we can enjoy our top tier :)! In short: If you’re looking for a wedding cake that is both delicious and beautiful – and made by a kind, creative, joyful person, go with Anita—you’ll be so happy you did!

    Above and beyond - gorgeous and delicious!

    We are still over the moon that we found Maliha Creations this year. Our cake was a true show-stopper -- we wanted a unique one and Anita made our vision come to life BEYOND what we had hoped for! It's been 2 months and we still get comments about how delicious and gorgeous it was! Working with Anita in the months leading up to the wedding was great; even though we live out of state, the process was as smooth as can be and she really gave us peace of mind. We had a popular wedding date, so we actually booked her before having a tasting because of her gallery and reviews, and how much we loved her from our consultation call. That was a risk we are so glad we took!! Anita is not only an incredible and thoughtful creator and expert, she is also a clear and intentional communicator, which anyone planning a wedding should value. Our appreciation for her and the art form elevated with every exchange we had -- we actually learned a lot because of her thoughtful answers to our questions. She thinks outside the box, is accommodating and generous with her time, and put her whole heart into our cake. She even made a gluten-free cutting cake because one of us is sensitive and she wanted to make sure we had the full experience. It's all what we needed and more than what we dreamed of - we will forever be grateful!! Go with Anita and book her fast -- she's the real deal, the absolute best, and will take your day to the next level!

    If you want an absolutely stunning piece of art, that tastes as good as it looks, at your wedding, my husband and I highly recommend getting your cake from Maliha Creations! Anita is extremely talented and an absolute joy to work with when creating a cake that will represent you on your big day. When we first reached out to book her, She invited us at her lovely home in Charlottesville for our tasting. Immediately upon arriving, she provided us coffee and an assortment of every type of cake and filling she could offer. There must have been 20-30 different cake types, fillings, jams and buttercreams that could be used, each one incredibly delicious. She made us feel so relaxed and excited about trying everything! We were able to choose two flavors, and we decided to pick a vanilla cake with fresh lemon curd layers and a center layer of vanilla buttercream and strawberries for the bottom tier, and the two tops tiers were a chocolate cake with Raspberry buttercream and jam and a center layer of chocolate ganache. Anita was also so easy to work with in terms of design. She immediately grasped my concept and provided a lot of suggestions on what would work best aesthetically and how she could create the perfect succulents for our cake (my wedding had succulents as the main plant/flower in all the design elements). She also offered to make us a little detail on the back which could represent something special about us as a couple.

    On the day of, we were absolutely blown away! Our imaginings couldn’t even come close to how gorgeous that cake was. Anita hand crafted every succulent and leaf, and the bottom tier was absolutely exquisite, the ruffled element played so wonderfully with the top two tiers which were smooth white, and the personal element at the back of the cake was perfectly sculpted! We felt bad when we had to cut it! Everyone kept telling us how delicious each flavor was and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Thank you so much for a show stopping cake!

    Anita Gupta is a very talented artist! My daughter wanted a naked cake with just fresh flowers. Anita found a clever and beautiful way to incorporate part of my wedding topper into my daughter's cake decoration. It was a surprise for her! And...the cake was fresh and delicious. There were many compliments about the quality from people that really know their cakes.

    Maliha Creations is the absolute best! From the minute we tasted her dark chocolate cake at our tasting, we knew that we had to have them bake our wedding cake. My dad, my husband, and I had never tasted cake so incredible with the most perfect texture! We were so happy with our cake. Anita was so helpful with everything from the cake stand to helping us make final decisions about our cake. She is so kind and an amazing baker and artist. She can really do it all.

    Anita did an AMAZING job on our wedding cake! Not only was it absolutely beautiful, but it tasted PHENOMENAL! Not too sweet, just we like it. She also offers an amazing tasting experience, where you and your fiancé can sit quietly and sample dozens of combinations of fillings, frostings, and cake flavors until you find the perfect cake for you. I would recommend Anita at Maliha Creations to anyone in the area!

    An excellent experience from start to finish. Anita welcomed us into her home for a delicious cake testing. Her recommendations were fantastic -- she took our initial impressions and concocted the best possible combination of flavors (as many of our guests can attest!). Anita is very easygoing and was a true pleasure to work with, and the end product was nothing short of stellar. Thanks Anita, we are very grateful!

    Anita is so incredibly talented and creative -- we feel so lucky to have found her for our special day!

    We wanted to do something really fun and colorful for our cake and were able to pull a reference image for her. Turns out, her creation was more beautiful than the picture we shared!! She is so lovely and warm and made the whole process fun for us. She was such an amazing collaborator and we were so impressed by her talent!

    We cannot recommend her enough!

    I was not excited about our wedding cake until we went to our tasting with Anita. She makes it so personal and such a unique experience. Our cake was beautiful and delicious. You won't find anyone else in Charlottesville with such interesting cake, icing, and filling flavors and willing to try pretty much any combination! She is truly the best!

    Anita is so incredibly talented and the absolute best there is in Charlottesville - she is a true cake master!! She made both our wedding cake and grooms cake and I swear our wedding cake was the prettiest thing I have ever seen. It looked like something out of a magazine and was so delicious too. I really don't know how she does it, but she did such a wonderful job of bringing our vision to life and made both cakes absolutely perfect in every way. Her attention to detail on our grooms cake was impeccable and will always be such a special memory for us to look back on. If you want a wedding or grooms cake that is truly unique and one that will wow your guests, Anita from Maliha Creations is the only way to go! I promise it will be one of the best decisions you make during the wedding planning process.

    Anita is extremely talented. She made two cakes for us for our wedding, and we were so impressed with each of them. The wedding cake itself was extravagant -- it was a 6 tier wedding cake with very intricate details throughout. Each layer had its own personality and details, and it must've taken so long to carefully create. The layers had hand-crafted bows and flowers and designs. Anita is so incredibly talented and impressive. She used three different types of rhinestones to decorate the individual levels, and the cake was beautiful. It was one of a kind, a true fairytale cake. The groom's cake was three levels -- UVa basketball, Nationals baseball, and Broncos football. At the very top, there were two jerseys, a steeler jersey for me and a broncos jersey for my husband with our favorite numbers. Both cakes were amazing. I would use Anita again 100000%. She's soooooo talented!

    Anita was a joy to work with, and the cake she made us was both stunning and delicious! Not to mention it was EXACTLY what we wanted (but even more beautiful than we thought!). We got so many compliments on the taste, too. She's extremely professional and extremely nice, a lovely combination :)

    Anita was wonderful to work with! The cake tasting itself was amazing, as she has so many delicious cakes and icings to taste and choose from, so the combination possibilities were endless! I told Anita the colors and elements that I wanted to include in my cake, and she gave me helpful advice for what would or would not work well together. We were able to come up with two different cake combinations that we wanted to include, and our guests are still raving about how impressed they were with the taste and presentation of the cake! Anita's cakes are of the highest quality, and I definitely recommend her for creating the perfect treat for your wedding!

    Anita is a professional and talented cake artist. She took the time to meet with us, patiently waiting as we tried each delicious combination of cake and buttercream she offered during our tasting. Initially, I was a bit unsure of what I wanted our cake to look like. As we went through photos of her past projects, Anita was very patient and worked with us to craft the perfect cake for our wedding. If you are looking for beautiful work, delicious cake, and personal attention, Maliha Creations is the vendor for you.

    Anita is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! She is extremely professional, very sweet, and such a pleasure to work with. The most important and exciting part of our wedding planning for my husband was the infamous "Cake Tasting". From the moment we met with Anita for our cake tasting.... We Fell in LOVE!!! When we arrived, several different frosting's, preserves ,and yummy cakes were ready for us to enjoy. Anita helped us along the design process for the perfect wedding cake for us. I could not be happier with how it turned out. She is AMAZING at her craft!! My husband and I plan to order a cake on our one year anniversary since we ate the one we were suppose to save! Trust me.... The cake is just that good! Thanks Anita!! We would highly recommend Maliha Creations to Everyone!

    Anita with Maliha Creations is INCREDIBLE. She was so easy to work with and made something better then I could've ever imagined. I had to do my cake tasting in a "to-go" setting which she made extremely easy and convenient. Everything was labeled and even came with instructions of how she would do the tasting with you if she were there (you can do it at her location, I just personally was not able). I had a three tiered cake with two different flavors because I couldn't decide on just one. Anita is so talented that I'm sure she would be able to create any type of cake that you wanted. Her cake designs are as simple or as detailed as you would like them to be, and honestly my cake turned out better then what I was expecting! If you want to work with someone who is professional, personable and not have to worry about if your cake is going to turn out the way you want, 100% please use Anita from Maliha Creations!

    Working with Anita was fun from the very beginning. We started off meeting her at an early morning tasting in her beautifully designed consultation room in her house. The tasting was so much fun and the cake was to die for— we knew right away we had to book her.

    She ended up making 3 types of cupcakes for our wedding, a beautiful cutting cake, and a cake for my dad's birthday. Everything tasted SO amazing and looked so gorgeous. I somehow didn't have time to eat any cake at our wedding.. but my diet consisted of cake everyday after our wedding because it was soooo good I couldn't get enough!! Her prices are super reasonable especially for the level of service you get. Anita is a kind, generous person who loves what she does.

    Thank you Anita!!!

    It is hard to believe that my husband and I will be celebrating our first anniversary next weekend! It feels as if we were just at Trump Winery saying our I do's! As our wedding anniversary nears, I want to thank Anita again for her fantastic service and delicious wedding cake/cupcakes! Almost a year later, we still have wedding guests commenting on how delicious our cupcakes were! Everyone enjoyed them and not one cupcake was left over! Not only did our cake/cupcakes taste delicious, the presentation was also exactly what I had envisioned and beautiful! I could not have asked for a better baker and am so extremely happy that I found Anita and Malihas Creations! From the time you meet Anita and do a wondering tasting with her, to the day you are enjoying your wedding cake, you will not be disappointed with her services! I highly recommend Maliahs Creations! Thank you!!

    Incredible. Everything about our experience with Maliha Creations was incredible. When I saw her cakes first in a magazine and then online I knew I wanted to work with Anita to create the perfect cake for our day. We started with a tasting and it was a truly relaxing experience that gave us the opportunity to put together the right flavors for our cake (almond cake with amaretto mocha and vanilla buttercream!). There were so many options available to us, without a cake tasting we wouldn't have known what to choose! Then Anita and I worked together to design the outside of the cake to mimic the fabric and color of my dress. The result was amazing! The cake was gorgeous and completely delicious! It was exactly what we had hoped for, and more. We can't wait until our one year anniversary when we'll enjoy a fresh tier from Anita (no need to freeze the top of our cake!).

    Maliha Creations was amazing! When we went to our first cake tasting we booked her on the spot! We had other appointments but the cake was so good and she was so cool and down to earth we decided on the spot that she was the perfect person to make our wedding cake! I had a specific vision in my head of what I wanted and she delivered it exactly how I wanted if not better! I couldn't be more pleased with our wedding cake and it was soooo delicious! All of my wedding guests were ranting and raving about it!
    Thank you so much Anita!

    Anita from Maliha Creations was absolutely wonderful! From the cake tasting to the finished product, it was all so much fun working with someone so creative and talented. I would absolutely recommend her services to anyone! I had her make the grooms cake which was a sailfish to mimic one he caught on a trip to Guatemala as he is such a fisherman. It was an absolute HIT!! It was AMAZING! So perfect it looked fake and I had a hard time believing it was a cake!! Not only beautiful, but DELICIOUS!! Everyone LOVED the cake!! My wedding cake was also incredibly beautiful! The elegance of the ruffles and the gum paste flowers, all remarkable. I would use her over and over again without reservation!
