Desserts by Rita is a small bakery based in Bishopville, Maryland, but reaches to Harford County in Havre de Grace where Rita–the owner and operator—herself grew up. Rita moved from Harford County to Ocean City, MD and worked as a cake maker for the Garden Restaurant on 145th street in Ocean City. Rita was already known for her sweet touch in the kitchen when the restaurant’s owner asked her to sweeten up their dessert menu. This was when the original creamy Lemon Lust and the tropical Rita’s delight were born. Rita began baking for the Garden in 1977 and by 1985 she had her own shop in the 45th street shopping center. One year after opening Rita was quoted by a local newspaper saying “This is it ,from here on out, there will always be a Desserts by Rita.” Read less

Our cake was included in our contract with The Vandiver, and all I can say is WOW. Loved our design, loved the cake tasting, and LOVED LOVED LOVED the final product.
We decided to go with the "birch tree" with our carved initials. I requested fondant flowers that matched our table arrangements that turned out lovely.
We loved all the flavors we tried at the tasting, so naturally we had two different flavors on each tier! My favorite was the raspberry chocolate, while my husband loved the strawberry. We decided to save the top tier to savor for our anniversary (but believe me, we're temped to dig in way before that.)
We loved the cakes here so much, we plan on making a 40minute trip back to Havre de Grace to grab one to savor every few weeks. You ROCK guys. All the guests agree it was the best tasting wedding cake they've ever had. Thanks Desserts by Rita!

Desserts by Rita just did my daughter's wedding cake for her wedding on August 14 at the Vindiver Inn. This was honestly one of the most beautiful wedding cakes I have ever seen and one of the best tasting cakes. Our guests are still talking about it. They said it is the best wedding cake they ever ate. It was perfect and we couldn't be more happier. They were so friendly and great to work with. If you are looking for an absolutely beautiful amazing cake you must go to Desserts by Rita.

Absolutely amazing cake! I could not have asked for a better and more professional bakery to make our wedding cake. We were so satisfied with how delicious the cake was and how beautiful it was. The cake tasting is still by far my favorite part of the wedding planning process!

We loved working with Cindy from Desserts By Rita for our wedding in April! Our cake was AMAZING. We had different flavors on every tier (the lemon and strawberry tier was my favorite), and different fillings (including peanut butter filling on one tier, which was a huge hit), and it was delicious!! The cake was one of the things we were most excited about with the wedding, because it was all fun and just about what we wanted. Cindy helped us find a design that we liked, and she even did a mock-up of the design for us so we could see the colors and decide for sure what we wanted. It turned out just beautiful, and everyone at the wedding loved it. We’re definitely planning on going back to get cake or cupcakes for anniversaries, and can’t wait to try out the Desserts by Rita at the beach too!

We got married on March 5 at the Vandiver Inn and they partner with Desserts by Rita for wedding cakes. Our cake was amazing and our guest raved about how pretty and delicious it was. We had a 3 tier semi-glazed naked cake with 3 different flavors: orange, chocolate and lemon. The Vandiver and Desserts by Rita coordinated everything in between. Great experience and we will be using them as our go-to baker!

Thanks for everything! :)

Before scheduling my cake tasting with Cindy, I spoke to other people who absolutely raved about the delicious cakes at Desserts By Rita. My husband and I are not big fans of cake and we were blown away by how delicious all of the cake flavors were at our tasting. It was a tough decision to decide which of the many wonderful cake flavors we wanted for our wedding. We had a few ideas of how we wanted out cake to be decorated and Cindy exceeded our expectations. She made us the perfect cake for our winter wedding! Our guests could not stop raving about the cake and commented on how it was the most delicious cake they have ever tasted. Working with Cindy was an absolute breeze! We can’t wait to visit Desserts By Rita for the next cake we need!

DELICIOUS!
Let me first admit, when I initially contacted Cindy it was a little to early to schedule a tasting and meeting and such so we decided to wait till it got closer. THEN I FORGOT. My wedding was Sunday January 3rd 2016 I reached back out to Cindy Around November 15th (I know I know). I had 3 days to finalize everything, which was fine. I sent her a load of picture of what I wanted she sent me some back of thoughts and what she could do. We agreed on a design, color, and flavor all through email. When I saw the cake it took my breath away. IT WAS STUNNING AND TASTED EVEN BETTER. Cindy made us a two tier birdcage cake and cupcakes, and my guests could not stop saying how good it was. The buttercream was so good, I had two pieces of cake and a cupcake the day lol.
I still have yet to meet Cindy face-to-face but she created a beautiful and delicious cake, that I can't wait to eat again on our first anniversary. Creating a wedding cake last minute probably wasn't the best idea on my part but let me tell you Cindy definitely delivered!
