Upon setting foot on the bakery, I knew it felt like the right place to be. When discussing the wedding cake options , he was very patient while I over thought every aspect of the cake, and my indecisive self ended up requesting a 5 tier cake with each tier having a different flavor. The creativity he puts into cakes to give it their own personality associated with the theme or bridal gown is amazing. You can definetly see that he loves his job.

Thank you so much for those kind words. I love creating cakes and my only wish everytime i do a cake is that you love the cake as much on your wedding day as you will 50 years from now when your kids are pulling out those photos of you on your wedding day at your 50th Anniversary. May your marriage be filled with nothing but Love

Met with Dana and had a wonderful time during our cake tasting (we even took a few baked goods home with us). Had a picture of what I wanted our cake to look like and on the day of we were incredibly happy with the turn out (we had a naked cake decorated with fresh flowers and a willow tree cake topper). The taste, texture and overall look was beautiful.

We had the pleasure of meeting and working with Dana through our venue at Bella Vita in Newark. Dana is truly talented in his work. As soon as my husband and I walked in to his shop, we knew we wanted to work with him. Dana has a creative artistic eye in making your cake dream a reality. Our guests were extremely pleased with our cake at the wedding and so were we! We would work with Dana again in the future. If you are looking for a professional, reputable, and down-to-earth person to work with, Dana is your guy!

Our cake was included with our package at Deerfield. Meeting with Dana and his team was a real pleasure. We had a great time tasting cake options-- there were so many to choose from. On our wedding day, the cake was exactly what we pictured. Our guests all loved it! I've since bought another cake from them and it was also great!!

Our cake was provided by Desserts by Dana for our wedding last weekend. We had so many compliments not only on the taste but the way they decorated it as well! It was perfect! We met with Netesha for the tasting and she was fantastic. I had a picture of what I had in mind which she took and did nothing but improve upon it! She made it our cake not the cake in the picture. Then, the day of the wedding comes and we go to see the cake and it was even more beautiful than I pictured in my head! We opted for pumpkin and vanilla flavors which were both delicious and everyone loved them (especially the pumpkin but we are partial to anything pumpkin)! Anytime we need a cake or bakery item Desserts by Dana will be our first stop! Thank you all so much!!

We used Desserts by Dana for our wedding cake and Groom's Cake, and they did a wonderful job! All of the flavors were so delicious, and the designs of the cakes were perfect. Our Groom's Cake was a very intricate design, and they did a great job with such an attention to detail. We received so many compliments on how much people loved the cakes and the uniqueness of flavors. Overall they did a wonderful job and we will definitely be back for more desserts!
