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!!!

Anita was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. Our wedding was a little last minute and she was great about fitting us in and giving us exactly what we wanted. Her cakes are beautiful and more importantly they are delicious. We had nothing but endless compliments from guests. We are having a baby in February and I can't wait to use Anita's services again to celebrate.

Anita made us the most delicious cutting cake - beautiful and tasted incredible! For our guests we had three different types of cupcakes. While we were very happy with our cupcakes, we felt they didn't quite live up to the cutting cake taste-wise and that Anita was perhaps not as responsive or excited about making cupcakes compared with making a traditional wedding cake. That said, if you are looking for a traditional wedding cake you absolutely can't go wrong with Maliha Creations!

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!

Maliha Creations did a phenomenal job! From the tasting to the delivery to the absolutely stunning (and delicious!) cake, every facet of getting just the right cake was a pleasure. Initially we considered other options instead of a tiered cake, but decided a cake is a focal point for the reception both in terms of decor and timing. Should you decide on a cake, rest assured that Maliha Creations will do a beautiful job. Anita listens carefully to what the bride says and is very in tune with current trends as well. Our cake was very elegant; our guests definitely noticed it! Thank you, Anita!!

Anita was not only responsive through email, but willing to work around our schedule and delivered our cupcakes and cutting tier to our venue right when she promised. The set up was beautiful, and she used the pieces I had left her to add to the decor of the cake table. Her cakes are moist, buttery, and delicious--everyone loved them! We couldn't have asked for more!

Not only did they look appealing, but they tasted wonderful too. Anita, went above and beyond and even added sirens and lights to our Groom's cake firetruck. The look on my husbands face when he saw his cake was priceless. Anita, is very professional and was very helpful with everything, from picking flavors, coordinating colors, down to every detail. I highly recommend her for any occasion. Thank you so much, Anita.

Simply put, Maliha Creations was awesome. We did several cake tastings on the same day, and our first was at Maliha Creations -- which set the bar VERY high for our other tastings.
Anita invited us into a beautifully appointed tasting room, and served us a variety of cakes and frostings that we were able to mix and match, along with coffee and water. She suggested some "customer favorites" in terms of pairings, as well as additional mixtures that she could create based on our personal preferences after talking with us.
We didn't have anything specific in mind when we met with Anita, so we were really looking for some guidance and/or to be inspired by something irresistably delicious, and Anita managed to meet and surpass both expectations. We ended up with a several-tiered cake. Two tiers were Red Velvet, cut into three layers with cream cheese frosting on the outide and kahlua-mocha frosting in the middle. The other tier was a yellow cake with raspberry frosting and a lemon curd interspersed between the layers. Guests were so torn as to which was their favorite! Both types of cake were so good that there wasn't a single piece left at the end of the night - which is definitely unusual for most weddings that I've attended. And for cake that delicious, I was shocked at how reasonably priced it was! After the cake tastings we thought "we'd love to use Maliha Creations but I bet it's really expensive" -- when we got the price proposal it was a no-brainer! The value was amazing.
If the amazing cake wasn't enough to win us over, however, Anita's friendliness, guidance, positivity, and responsiveness really sealed the deal for us. She was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process, and even accomodated a last minute request to change the design of the cake (specifically the way the outside frosting was decorated).
I cannot recommend Maliha Creations highly enough - I would use them again in an instant!

My husband and I tried a couple of different bakers before meeting with Anita from Maliha Creations. The other bakers were very solid options, and we assumed it would be a difficult decision. But after the first bite, we knew that we wanted Maliha Creations for our wedding cake.

All of Anita's cake flavors are fantastic. Even though my husband and I were pretty sure we wanted a lemon cake (which we did end up going with), we were almost swayed by several other options. They were so tasty! No matter what you choose, your guests will end up loving your cake. My mom told me afterward that she made a point to try some and ended up sitting down to finish the whole piece.

Also, Anita's cakes are true works of art. Our wedding was library-themed, and Anita was able to incorporate our love of books into the cake design while still keeping the look elegant and chic. It was so impressive. Anita is so creative and also extremely pleasant to work with.

We have a piece of our wedding cake in our freezer for our first anniversary. Personally, I can't wait to have another bite!

I will most definitely recommend Maliha Creations in the future. Anita was so personable, easy-going, willing to brainstorm options with you, and honest. I brought a picture of a cake that I loved and she helped me design one based off the picture but totally unique for our day. She was also very realistic about the size of the cake for the guest list. Oh yeh did I forget to mention how yummy the cakes are?!! We had a trio of cakes in different sizes and shapes: almond cake with chocolate buttercream and carrot cake with maple cream cheese frosting. Delicious! We cannot wait for our first anniversary cake- NOPE we dont have to bust out a frozen one from the freezer. We in fact get a brand new one!!!! Thank you Anita!

We definitely recommend Maliha Creations for your wedding cake/cupcakes! We chose to have cupcakes to complement for our BBQ dinner at our reception and we were so glad we did. Anita at Maliha Creations let us choose three different flavors and all three were incredible. I had worried that cupcakes would look too casual, but Anita's flair and artistic abilities made what could have been an ordinary cupcake display really pop with color and the effect was just gorgeous.

I rarely eat the cake when I attend weddings, and I was concerned that as the bride I would be too nervous and/or full to enjoy more than the first bite for the photographer. Instead, I had 2 entire cupcakes myself because they were so wonderful! Several of our guests told us later that they even had one of each flavor because they couldn't stand not trying them all!

Anita is easy to work with and happy to meet special requests. Any wedding will be lucky to have Maliha Creations as the confectioner!

She was great about communicating throughout the entire cake-making process and making sure we got exactly what we wanted. The wedding cake was beautiful and delicious and the groom's cake was a HUGE hit. She made a cake of the Rotunda with figures of us on the steps (since that's where we got engaged). We couldn't be happier!

Anita Gupta was extremely gracious about working with an out-of-town couple planning a Charlottesville wedding.

She created a beautiful, unique design based on the item we offered her for inspiration - a banner of papel picado, the traditional Mexican wedding decoration.

The business was easy to conduct, and the cake looked and tasted utterly wonderful. I recommend Maliha Creations to everyone!

Perhaps more importantly, it was delicious... an excellent balance - neither overwhelmingly sweet nor too rich to eat more than a few bites, but just perfect. Highly recommended.

It was the talk of the shower and a very memorable cake for the 1st time mom - to - be! It was so beautiful that we hated to cut into it, but we were all glad that we did! Fresh, sweet strawberries was one of the highlights! Thank you, thank you for a very memorable and tasty cake! It was truly a work of love and art -- from the outside - to the inside!

Anita was so pleasant and easy to work with and her cakes are both elegant and delicious. If you conduct a tasting with her you can find out for yourself, and the quality of cake and service is the same on your wedding day as it is at the tasting.

My family and friends raved about the rehearsal dinner grooms cake and could not wait to taste the wedding cake. They were definitely not disappointed- they were fabulous!

I also applaud Anita for her quick turnaround on our grooms cake. It was really a very last minute decision on my part and I gave her minimal information to complete it, but she did a wonderful job.

By far, her service and responsiveness of the vendors I met with in Charlottesville was the best. I attempted to meet with 4 different vendors in Charlottesville, not really knowing what to expect. One was not able to meet me. However, I found that the other 2 did not have the same quality of cakes, tastings, or general profesionalism.

Maliha Creations provided the cake for my daughter's Labor Day wedding. The cake was beautiful, a unique design made by Maliha. The cake tasted good, but was not as good as I expected. The main problem was that the cake arrived late. At the Vineyard, the cake table is in view of all the guests. Maliha did not arrive with the cake until my daughter was walking out in the processional. I was upset that the cake arrived so late. I do not feel it was appropriate for the cake to arrive so late, especially since the top flower design needed to be completed by Maliha. The cake looked beautiful, but I feel that it did not taste very good & that Maliha was late in its arrival with the cake.

Maliha Creations responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review, Candice. I am sorry that there seems to be a misunderstanding regarding the delivery time. As relayed to you by myself and your wedding planner, the cake did not arrive late, it actually arrived on time according to the timeline worked out by your planner. I have several emails between your planner and myself discussing the best time to deliver the cake to ensure its freshness and beauty, since it was filled with over 24 pints of raspberries. I am not sure why you felt it arrived late or that it was in view of the guests, when the wedding ceremony took place outside and the cake table was inside the venue away from the ceremony and your guests.

As far as you not being satisfied with the taste of the cake. The cake Jennifer and Will chose was the exact same style of cake delivered to the wedding. After their tasting, I received an email from your planner stating how they really enjoyed the tasting. I also did get notification that the wedding cake was delicious and most all of it was eaten. I do understand that taste is truly a subjective matter and want to assure you that Jennifer and Will's cake was made to my exacting quality standards.

I did enjoy working with you and your family and I am happy to hear that you were pleased with the final design that I created.

WOW!! You have to see her cake creations personally to believe it! And our wedding cake was no different! Beautiful! And the taste? Light, fluffy cake with light icing--made from scratch! Just right for a hot, summer wedding! As the bride and groom, we had to have slices saved for later as we weren't able to eat our slices right then, and all of the cake was gone by the end of the evening.

How the designer comes up with the idea and the ability to put the abstract idea into physical form is just amazing! We have been honored to have Maliha Creations design and create one of her original ideas for us for our wedding day!

Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable!!

Anita made us the most wonderful cake for our wedding. She worked with us for months on the design and helped us create exactly what we were looking for. just before the wedding, she checked the weather and knew our buttercream frosting wouldn't hold up in the heat that was forecast for our wedding day so offered to cover it in fondant for no extra charge in order to accommodate the outdoor reception. She worked with us to create a beautiful cake that was probably the most delicious cake I've ever eaten! All of the guests raved about the taste and when the cake finally succomed to the heat and fell (after we cut it), everyone gathered around it with their forks to eat it off the cake table so it wouldn't go to waste! It was so good! Everything about our experience with her was wonderful. We are so happy we went with her service and would highly recommend her for your wedding!

Not only is Anita an amazing baker and undeniable artist with an obvious passion for what she does, but she is also a truly wonderful and fun person to get to know! She clearly wants to deliver a cake that her client will love and was extremely patient with us, considering that we had only the vaguest idea of what we might want. She was accommodating, timely, and generous, and perhaps most important of all, her cakes are indescribably delicious. Seriously, ours was the best cake I have EVER eaten (and I've tried a lot!). We sent guests home with her cupcakes, and I have received a ton of emails from my friends ever since, saying how incredible the cupcakes were and lamenting that they didn't take more of them home. I plan to order more cakes in the future from Anita every chance I get, and I would (and do) encourage others to do the same. You will *not* be disappointed!

First of all, let me say that Anita is AMAZING. I grew up in an Italian home, with a grandmother who lived through the depression, who drilled into my head that it is best when its homemade. I bake everything from scratch using fresh ingredients - and was so excited to learn that Anita does so too. It really does make a difference.

The cake tasting was incredible - Anita gives you various flavored cakes, fillings, and frostings to try, allowing you to mix and match until you find the flavors you like best. We chose two: a sourcream almond cake with raspberry preserves filling and raspberry buttercream icing, and a lemond cloud cake with fresh sliced strawberries for filling with vanilla butter cream frosting.

The cake tasting was one of the best parts of planning our wedding, and all of my guests loved the cake. It was fresh, moist, flavorful, and DIFFERENT. How many weddings have you been to that have served the same standard carrot, chocolate or vanilla cake?

Anita was always prompt to respond to any questions, easy to work with, and gave us a few different ideas for the final decoration, all of which were fabulous. The best part is we get a fresh top tier for our first anniversary instead of the dreaded frozen one you save. We are already looking forward to it!

Anita at Maliha Creations is amazing. We met with her prior to making our decision as to who would bake our cake and the decision after meeting with her, seeing samples, and tasting the flavors was easy. Anita is extremely professional and responsive. We had a few ideas for our cake but weren't set on any ideas and needed a little guidance. She had great ideas and examples to create the modern cake we were looking for while still considering our budget. After discussing what we wanted, she even drew up a few designs to send over so we knew exactly how it would look. She was extremely flexible when our numbers changed a bit and the size cake she recommended for us turned out to be perfect. We also wanted to incorporate gluten free cupcakes for some of our guests at the last minute and she did this with ease. She had them decorated to match the cake and even included the same flavor palet (lemon cake, raspberry filling, whole raspberries, and vanilla buttercream); they looked and tasted amazing and our guests really appreciated the extra thought. I have to say that with planning a wedding, Anita made it extremely seemless with her quick response time, helpful suggestions, and amazing talent. We would highly recommend her to all of our friends and family and will hopefully have another event soon to celebrate with a Maliha Creations cake!

Anita was WONDERFUL to work with from beginning to end. The tasting experience was fun- my mother and I sat in Anita's front room of her cozy house and tried several of her cakes and frostings, which were all amazing. I was very happy with our final choice! The cake and fillers were delicious, and the artistry of the cake design was impeccable. Anita even sent me an email on the day of the wedding to say that she had delivered the cake, and that all was well. Wonderful service!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Anita from Maliha Creations is so wonderful to work with. Her creativity is amazing. When I booked the cake with her, I knew I had nothing else to worry about, she was so capable and took care of everything. The cake looked too good to eat, it was so beautiful! But once we dug in, all our guests could not believe how delicious it was. It really was the hit of the event. I would recommend her to anyone. Excellent.

Anita is very sweet and professional. She's very creative but likes the bride's direction in designing the best cake. Her flavors are unique and the quality of the cake and fondant were by far the best we tasted. Some bakers didn't even want to do a tasting with us because they thought we just wanted free cake! If I wanted free cake, I'd go to Whole Foods or Harris Teeter - not drive 2 hours!

Everyone at our wedding absolutely adored Anita's cakes. She made a surprise Groom's cake. It was a Penguin cake wearing some a traditional filipino groom's shirt (called a barong). It turned out amazing and he was the star at our Rehearsal dinner. Anita also made our wedding cake which was modeled after the Rotunda, a building at the University of Virginia. It was gorgeous and yummmy, too! I never knew that fondant could taste so good until I tried her cakes.

The cake flavors and fillings were delicious as promised. On our wedding day, the cake was displayed beautifully and requiring no effort on our part.
