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

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!

We worked with Cindy at the Havre de Grace location and she was great. Our cake was beautiful and tasted amazing. We had a three tier and the designs were different on each level, she help us narrow down design and placement. My two questions for cake are : Is it pretty? Is it yummy? Our guest told us 'yes' to both.

OMG Deliciousness. Desserts by Rita cakes / cupcakes were included with our venue's cost (for each person we had contracted at our venue we got a slice of cake or a cupcake).

We went into the bakery - warning it is very small, you can have a total of 4 people at the tasting (though it is so delicious you won't want to share with more than that!) I believe we had 7 slices of cake and they put a dollop of 7 different icings on top of the slices. This was great because I could take a bit of icing from one cake and try it with another cake type.

We knew that we wanted both a 2 tier cake and cupcakes. Our cake was a white cake with a white painted lace flower design on it. I brought in an image and they did a wonderful job recreating it. We also had 7 different flavors of cupcakes. They provided a cake stand / cupcake stand and delivered everything.

Everyone loved the cakes and cupcakes and I know that I will keep up with our relationship with them in the future with birthdays and other celebrations.

We got married at the Vandiver Inn and Desserts by Rita handles all of the cakes. What an amazing relationship to have with a wedding venue! I, for one, am not a huge cake fan, but I had trouble choosing the flavor for our wedding cake after going for our tasting. We ended up having 4 different flavors, which was such a cool option! The bottom layer was almond cake and spice cake with an almond filling; the middle layer was chocolate raspberry and strawberry cake with a strawberry filling; and the top to keep was strawberry cake. Desserts by Rita was so calm in listening to our vision and provided us with a perfect cake! Our guests would not stop talking about how delicious it was, and some guests even poked the cake because it didn't look real (we chose a design where the cake looked like a tree with our initials carved into it). It was an amazing cake for a perfect day! I will never buy a cake from any place else now!

Desserts by Rita makes amazing cakes! It was so nice working with them to design our wedding cake. It was harder than I thought it would be to pick the flavors since all of them were delicious! And the buttercream icing goes so perfectly with all of them. Deciding on the look of our cake was even more fun. They have a huge book with pictures of cakes they've created in the past and we were able to pull inspiration from several cakes we liked to create a unique style that will go perfectly for our wedding. I'm really happy with our experience and can't wait to see how our cake turns out. I have no doubt it'll be a hit!

I had Desserts by Rita make my wedding cake, a grooms cake, and had a gluten free truffle all for my wedding. There were no complaints about any of the cakes. The cakes we gorgeous and were delicious! The butter cream that they use for the cakes is so delicious and they cakes were so moist. We had four flavors in our wedding cake and I don't think we had any slices left over after the wedding. The process of creating our cake was seamless. They were very attentive to what we wanted in our design. They offer cake stands as well which was really nice. I love the detail that they put into each cake.
I would recommend Desserts by Rita to anyone! I will continue to go here to get cakes in the future as well as that amazing gluten free truffle.

My wife and I got married at the Vandiver Inn, and Desserts by Rita handles all the cakes for that venue. We had a great cake tasting experience, and the eventual flavor we settled on, almond cake with almond buttercream, was incredible. Desserts by Rita did a great job of listening to our inspiration for the cake, and they executed on that inspiration beautifully. The cake was amazing, and our guests kept saying to us how much they loved it. There was even a report of a guest trying to sneak back into the venue hours after the wedding was over just to get more cake.
