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

What else can be said besides best cake ever? We were originally planning to do only cheesecake because wedding cake is so notoriously awful, but after doing a tasting we added two flavors of regular cake as well! They have a huge variety and everything is super tasty. Many of our guests had multiple pieces of cake it was so good!

Our only regret from our wedding day is that we didn’t eat more of our cake. It was delicious and beautiful! If you’re considering Desserts by Rita to do your wedding cake, all you need to do is go to a tasting to be convinced. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out visually or how it tasted. Thank you Desserts by Rita!

We got our cake from Desserts by Rita through the Vandiver Inn, and it was fabulous! Our tasting was extremely thorough, we must have tried a dozen kinds of cake! I found them very easy to work with and communicate our desires. On the day of the wedding, they coordinated the setup with the venue and the cake looked beautiful! I must say it tasted as good as it looked. It was somehow moist, which has not always been the case with other weddings I have been to! I would absolutely recommend Desserts by Rita for anyone wanting a delicious and lovely wedding cake!

We used Desserts by Rita this past October for our wedding cake. Cindy was a delight to work with from the very first time we met with her for the tasting. The cake!!! What can we say :-). Not only was it beautiful, our guests are still talking about it. They loved it! We loved it! The cake is so moist and tastes absolutely amazing. We can't wait until we are in town again to visit Desserts by Rita! Thank you so much Cindy and crew.

We met with Cindy and the rest of the staff at Desserts by Rita a few months prior to our wedding, and were very happy with their presentation. Everything we tasted was delicious, and the cake we ended up with on our special day looked amazing and tasted just as great as it looked. Could not recommend Desserts by Rita enough!

My wedding cake was so incredibly beautiful. It was everything I could of hoped for and more. I'm not a huge fan of cake but I couldn't stop eating yours. I had people calling me the day after asking if I had cake left! Also a big thank you for letting me make the mushroom decorations. It was a strange request but I appreciate you letting me use my own artwork. Desserts by Rita earns 5 stars in my book and I will be a returning customer for sure!!!

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.

Amazing cakes. We have a hard time fighting the urge to go back and get cake now that we've had the best.
