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

We got married at Vandiver Inn on June 12th and a cake by Desserts by Rita was included in our package. Not only was our cake gorgeous, it was absolutely delicious!! We fully took advantage of the option to have multiple flavors--our bottom layer was chocolate and vanilla, the middle was strawberry and lemon, with the top as almond. I recommend Desserts by Rita to everyone :)

Desserts by Rita makes the wedding cakes for couples getting married at the Vandiver Inn. I have to tell you this cake is amazing! Not your typical run of the mill wedding cake, for sure. When we went for our tasting (so good, by the way...so much cake), we chatted with the staff about our vision for the cake. We ended up choosing a "naked cake" - no frosting on the outside, just between the layers, with fresh fruit covering the exterior of the cake. They let us know all of our options and Cindy was very helpful via email and phone when it was time to make the final decisions. She did an incredible job. People are still talking to us about the cake two weeks later. I highly recommend Desserts by Rita!

Cindy at Desserts by Rita created the most beautiful design I have ever seen. We asked for her to work her magic and she was able to replicate the flowers and images off of our hand designed invitations to tie the theme of everything together in one more aspect beyond invites, my guest bench (not book!), and various other ways we were able to bring it all together cohesively. When i saw the cake it was truly more amazing than I would have dared to imagine. The surprise of it was breathtaking! Each guest was amazed by the beauty and most importantly, the taste of the delicious cake Cindy created for us. We had a three tier cake, each with two layers - one yellow cake and chocolate cake with her amazing vanilla buttercream icing, and the middle layer with lemon cake and orange cake with vanilla butter cream, then our top tier, which is the lemon and orange cake. :) My new husband and I both agree, along with our entire list of wedding guests, it was the BEST wedding cake ever tasted. Amazing to the tenth degree. I will be stopping by and/or special ordering cakes/desserts/anything I can from Cindy in the future. Delicious, and gorgeous. I could not have asked for a better or more beautiful cake. No one will ever surpass it, in my opinion! Thank you Cindy and team! You are the BEST and I appreciate all of the time and attention you spent on making our gorgeous wedding cake!!

Cindy at Dessert's by Rita was so great to work with - polite, flexible, and knowledgeable. Our cake was beautiful and delicious! Their cakes are so good we had difficulty narrowing down our flavors. Cindy even allowed us to borrow a cake stand for our big day. I would highly recommend Rita's!

We got married at The Vandiver Inn and they work very closely wit Desserts by Rita to include the cake in their wedding package, and I am so glad that they do! The cake planning process was completely seamless and so convenient. We were able to do our cake tasting and submit our ideas for what we wanted in one meeting, and then they took care of the rest. We were so excited to see our cake for the first time when they delivered it during cocktail hour, and my jaw dropped when I saw it. It was absolutely stunning. I got so many compliments on how beautiful the cake was before anyone even took a bite! And let me tell you... THAT CAKE IS DELICIOUS. We ordered a little bit of everything: a layer of Devil's Chocolate, a layer of almond, a layer of lemon, and a layer of vanilla. THEY WERE ALL SO GOOD. Everyone was raving about how good the cake tasted. Our wedding planner at The Vandiver Inn said that they usually set the leftover cake out for the wedding party when everyone returns to the mansion from the afterparty, but there wasn't any cake left, so that really says it all!

Desserts by Rita did the most incredible job with our wedding cake. It is hands-down the Best Wedding Cake you will ever have. So many of our guests came up to us raving about how it was the best cake they have ever tasted. It looked like a work of art, almost too gorgeous to eat, and tasted even better! I had a very specific vision of how I wanted my wedding cake to look (complete with drawings, lol), and Cindy and her staff made my dream a reality, it looked like out of a magazine it was so gorgeous!!

Wow! Just, wow! Cindy was wonderful to work with from the start. She took our ideas and created the perfect cake for us. It was sooo delicious too! I had several people tell me that it was the best cake they had ever had a a wedding. Everyone thought it was tasty and moist. So many people went back for seconds that we didn't have any leftovers! Thankfully, our wedding coordinator saved a piece of each of our flavors (almond, coconut, and chocolate-raspberry) for us to enjoy tomorrow.
