A Cake for a Cause

Early last summer, I received an email from a sweet woman, Kim, who wanted Maliha Creations to donate a cake for a golf tournament to benefit Potentials Foundation, an organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for primordial dwarfism (MOPD II) which is a very rare type of dwarfism. This type of dwarfism only affects approximately 200 in the world. When I saw a picture of Kim's son, I just had to come up with something special. This sweet little boy had the cutest face and the most beautiful eyes. His sister and brother created drawings that were going to be used for T-shirts for the event, so of course, I had to include them on the cake.

Only a golf bag to serve 200, would be fitting enough for a golf tournament.

Thank you, Kim, for choosing Maliha Creations to be a part of your special event. I hope events like this continue to raise money for the cause.

Playing Catch Up! has been a whirlwind of a winter for Maliha Creations. At the end of October our family grew to include a sweet little boy. With three kids underfoot, life has been crazy to say the least. I do look forward to getting back to baking for my wonderful customers in the next few months! In the meantime, I would like to post about a few of the cakes that I did before I went on maternity leave, but never had a chance to write about.
