Cakes For Kids – Free Birthday Cakes For Less Privileged Children

A Cape Malay Cooking & Other Delights Initiative – established in memory of our deceased parents. May Allah / God elevate their status in paradise, ameen.

I started this initiative (Cakes For Kids) after doing much research. I wanted to do something for the children in care homes, etc or whose parents simply can’t afford to give their child a birthday cake. I know from my own children and grandchildren even if you don’t have a party or a gift a simple cake makes a huge difference on their birthdays. Currently we cater for over 450 children and some adults from 16 institutes.


Our Recipients

We support all sorts of less privileged children and youth, they might be in orphanages, sheltered accommodation, safe houses, care homes, in low income housing with or without parent/s. We aim to raise these children’s self esteem and confidence with this seemingly simple gift on their special day. It may be just a cake, but the children we bake for know somebody took the time and effort to do something special just for them. The children realise they are important and in turn can have an impact on the world.
