Title: Baking cake for occasions


Assalamu aleikum. I would like to know what the ruling is regarding wedding and birthday cakes. Can I bake them for customers? Dzhazak Allahu hairan!


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Dear Brother,

It is permissible to make and sell wedding cakes. Avoid designing birthday cakes.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
