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

When I went to taste test Desserts by Rita for my wedding cake and assorted desserts, I wanted it all at my wedding because it was so delicious. I basically rolled out of the store from eating so much.
We ended up going with an orange flavored cake with a dessert bar of brownies, lemon cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes, chocolate raspberry cupcakes, cheesecake, eclairs, and cake balls. I was only able to eat the bit of cake that barely made it into my mouth during the cake smashing on my wedding day, and the next time I looked at the dessert table everything was almost eaten! Everyone loved the desserts. The dessert table was also very visually appealing. Our cake was beautifully covered in rosettes.

Desserts by Rita was one of our best decisions for our wedding cake/cupcakes. The had us to the store for a tasting which was delish!! The day of the wedding was seamless. They delivered and setup everything with no problems. The cake was beyond amazing and I my husband doesn't usually like cake and he had several pieces. I would order a cake or cupcakes from Rita for any occasion.

Wow just wow!! The cake was to die for! Can't decide if I'm going to save the top tier or eat it sooner :-)! Our flavors were devils food and yellow cake with a raspberry butter cream filling then vanilla buttercream on top, lemon and orange cake with vanilla buttercream. The presentation of the cake was awesome as well! Thanks again!!

Absolutely delicious!!! My venue has a standing contract with Desserts by Rita to provide the wedding cake, and I can tell you..that is such a great deal! Cindy was such a pleasure to work with, and she took my design changes without even blinking. The cake, oh my gosh, the cake. It was so delicious and moist, and the frosting (and I'm not really a buttercream fan) was fantastic, it was light, not too sweet, and flavored perfectly. I won't lie, I jumped with excitement when I saw how beautiful the cake was! I was almost sad that I knew we were going to be cutting and eating it later in the night (but the taste was totally worth it). My husband and I will definitely be stopping by sometime to buy cake in the future, SO GOOD!!!

Desserts by Rita was the perfect bakery to work with! They are creative, helpful, artistic, open to anything and most importantly delicious! I came in with a picture from pinterest and we went from their. Our cake was beautiful, delicious and didn't break the budget. My sister went with me to the cake tasting because my fiancee and I live out of state, and it was so good she bought cupcakes to take home with her! If I still lived in Maryland they would be my go to baker.

Cindy did a fabulous job with our wedding cake. It surpassed our expectations. It was gorgeous! The cake tasted GREAT! Everyone of our guests LOVED it. Not surprisingly, none was left, save alone our top layer which we're saving. If we ever need a special cake, we will DEFINITELY go to Desserts by Rita. Cindy, our baker and decorator is very easy to work with, very helpful and a top-star baker! We very highly recommend them!

As always, Desserts by Rita was a wonderful selection for my wedding cake! I have been getting cakes from her since I was 16, so when it came time to pick the wedding cake, I knew immediately who I was going to. The selection of cake flavors were wonderful! They were different than just normal devil's food and yellow cake, but they weren't so strange that the guests were wondering what they were eating. The design on the cake was absolutely gorgoues also! I had an old picture from a magazine and she made my cake look just like the one in the picture!! She was even flexible when we decided to add a "plain" cake for the children and picky eaters, just a few weeks before the wedding. They also delivered the cake right when they said they would! Thanks Desserts by Rita! I will definitely be coming back for more cake!

Desserts by Rita was recommended to us by several venues we researched for our wedding so we gave them a try. We were not disappointed! The staff was extremely helpful. We perused the book of wedding cake photos and liked some parts of different cakes, plus had some ideas of our own. Cindy (Rita's sister) worked with us until we came up with a design we really liked. The cake was delivered on time and was just beautiful! Besides looking great the cake was the most delicious wedding cake we'd ever had (we had a layer of yellow cake and one devil's food). Many of our guests raved about it and some who did not even like cake went back for a second piece. The buttercream icing is to die for! Can't say enough good things about this vendor.

I just wanted to thank Rita and Heather for their personal attention and fantastic service. They both were available and took the time to find out what I really wanted. Our cake was beautifully decorated by Heather in blue and purple hibiscus and the topper was adorable. Also the topper was specially put on the truck from the store in Havre de Grace because Rita wanted to make sure it was just right. They are so wonderful and the cakes got nothing but rave reviews all night!! Thank you so much!

They are very resonably priced and very helpful when it comes to tastings, style, size, and decorations. She even knew my florist and offered to work with her if I wanted real flowers on the cake! Everything turned out wonderful on the day of our wedding and I would definitely recommend them for the future!

These cakes are AWESOME. I'm still thinking about that chocolate-raspberry cupcake! One of my favorite things about their desserts is that the frosting isn't overly sweet. It goes perfectly with the cake. Unlike other bakeries which compensate for a bad cake by using too much sweet frosting, they get the balance just right.

We wanted a cupcake display as opposed to a traditional wedding cake since our wedding was outdoors and cupcakes matched the fun vibe we planned for it. Cindy met with us and we talked in detail about what we wanted, and the real cake turned out just like we had imagined.

Also, we had asked for a groom's cake which was a Sega Dreamcast (the day of our wedding is the anniversary of its release date---yes, quirky/nerdy/strange, we know!). We brought in our dreamcast and they did a perfect replica! http://rebeccasugar.tumblr.com/post/31232969878/happy-birthday-dreamcast-taken-with-instagram
The peanut butter frosting on it was so good. I miss that cake too...

Desserts By Rita provided excellent service and a tasty cake for our wedding! They worked with us on every detail, and were very knowledgeable when it came to the delivery and storage of the cake the day-of.
I am more than satisfied with the cake in both taste and design. I simply had an image from a magazine, scanned and sent to them to design from. Not picky, but for some reason I was about the particular color of the cake in the magazine. As a back-up, I went to a paint store and picked up paint sample chips and dropped them off, and asked them to match those colors as best they could if they thought the scanned image color would be difficult to make.
I still admire a photograph of our wedding cake that our photographer took. The actual wedding day you are a little too busy to notice details, but I remember thinking - wow this cake is gorgeous and that color is amazingly close to the magazine...and then I had to cut into the beauty; then later noticing the cake again after we were settled and married...and really saying WOW, getting the magazine to compare that image with our cake. I still can't get over it, though I should be raving about the taste of the cake!
It was basically demolished that night! People devoured it and yet there was more than enough for the amount of guests!
I am very satisfied with our cake experience, and highly recommend brides in the area to meet and taste with Desserts By Rita!

The cake was beautiful and tasted fabulous. Only mistake made was not to order larger cake. I was told not everyone eats cake and had a birthday/grooms cake that no one cut into so ran out of wedding cake even though the grooms cake was supposed to be cut.
Everyone commented who ate cake that it was the best they ever tasted and I have been told by others that the cake is one of the best taht freezes after a year for the anniversary.

Thank you so much for making my wedding cake and cupcakes for my recent wedding at the Vandiver Inn! Everyone raved about how much they LOVED the cake/cupcakes, that we didn't have one slice to spare by the end of the night! Everyone snagged what was left over as they left the venue because they just couldn't get enough...they are absolutely AMAZING!
Ed LOVED his Groom Cake, as he won't share it with anyone..he works on it a little bit each night! It was a perfect design for him and he LOVES the Chocolate Raspberry flavor.
I think that we will never be able to eat another cake outside of Rita's after this weekend..because now we know what a "REAL" cake should taste like!
Thank you again!

Best wedding cake ever...
My husband and I have been to many weddings so we have tasted a lot of wedding cake. We can say without a doubt that our wedding cake - from Desserts by Rita - was the best we've ever had. AND, we had many family and guests tell us the same thing. Our experience with Cindy during the planning process was great - they did a free sampling with a ton of cake, and it was very easy to figure out the design. I wasn't incredibly specific, just gave some parameters, and it turned out absolutely beautiful and elegant. Did I mention how absolutely delicous it was? It was 4 layers with 4 different flavors and they were all amazing. My husband and I plan to keep going back for desserts whenever we're in the area!

Having a cake from Desserts by Rita was part of our contract with the Vandiver Inn. What a match made in heaven! My husband and I still talk about how excellent our wedding cake was. As most newlyweds do, we have our cake top sitting in our freezer for us to enjoy on our first anniversary. That cake was sooo amazing that it truly is a task to wait until our first anniversary to taste it again!

We got married at the Vandiver Inn on 03March2012. The cake from Desserts by Rita was included with the venue. And I must say DELICIOUS!
We met with Cindy 3 months before the wedding for our tasting. After I found out the cake was included and where it was from - I did some research on their website. Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it - PEANUT BUTTER buttercream. O-M-G! Cindy had the usual flavors of cakes and buttercreams ready for us. They were all so good, my wife and I finished almost the whole plate. I asked to sample the peanut butter, though, and saved some cake to try it with...it was better than I imagined! We had a chocolate/vanilla layer with peanut butter buttercream, the anniversary tier was the same, and we chose lemon with vanilla for our middle tier because it was so good and such a great contrast to the heavier layer.
Our design was kind of complicated. Our wedding colors were black and white, with pops of solid colors. Cindy made a map of the cake with notes for everything. She offered to create a mock-up layer so we could confirm it was correct. The mock-up didn't turn out exactly as we wanted - but no big deal; that's what mock-ups are for. Cindy redrew the cake map with more notes...and when our cake showed up...it was GORGEOUS! Exactly as we had discussed.
It's 3 weeks later and people are still commenting on how beautiful and delicious it was...and I'm finding it hard to save the anniversay tier. YUM!

The cake itself tasted so good! We got to do a tasting, and they let me bring my fiancée and both my parents...and even gave us another piece of chocolate when my dad ate the first piece himself! We chose to use two flavors because they were all so good and it was so hard to decide! It is absolutely delicious and I can't wait until my anniversary so I can dig in again! (we even had an extra piece left in our fridge when we came home from the honeymoon and I couldn't resist eating it! It was still good!)

Desserts by Rita was the baker that was included in the price of my venue when I booked my wedding at the Vandiver Inn. However, there is a reason why the venue chooses to business with only one baker...they are AMAZING! The cake was looked and tasted superb. Many times you might get a cake somewhere else that looks fantastic but isn't good to eat. This was NOT the case with my cake from Desserts by Rita. It was moist, rich, and my guests were able to choose from two different flavors. My husband and I can't wait to eat the top tier a year from now!

We could not have imagined a more perfect cake for our wedding. Desserts by Rita matched the blue of our roses (that were with our florist) with the blue details on our cake. The cake was magnificant and delicious! All of guest raved about the cake and there wasnt a single slice of cake remaining at the end of our reception. The price was fantastic as well!

Desserts by Rita makes the BEST cakes!! I am not a big fan of cake, but when I went for the tasking, I loved this cake!! We went with the orange and lemon, they were both amazing. The price per person was comparable or better than other places I looked into. A few days before our wedding day we had to make the decision to move our wedding up by 3 hours due to hurricane Irene :( It was the worst case scenario, but the team at Ritas were able to get the cake delivered earlier than planned with no problem. The wedding went off without a hitch, despite the hurricane going on outside of our tent at the Wellwood in Charlestown, MD.

Our cake was provided through a contract that Desserts by Rita has with Vandiver Inn, so all we had to do was go in, decide on flavors and design, and call with a number before the big day.

They are well prepared to do a large variety of designs, and their cakes are light and moist, topped with fantastic buttercream icing! Our guests were raving about the cake long into the night, and the scrollwork on the cake was lovely-thank you Kimberly Gillis!

During the planning process, we would ask other vendors who they would recommend for the wedding cake, and everyone said Ritas. Each flavor that we tasted was delicious, and we received so many compliments on how good the cake was. We even ordered 2 dessert trays, and they were delicious as well. My mother and I were also pleasantly surprised to find that Ritas was cheaper than a couple other places that we had looked into. The staff was very friendly, and willing to work with my ideas. You're guaranteed a great cake if you go with Ritas!

Desserts by Rita was a pleasure to work with! We held our wedding at the Vandiver, so our cake was included in that package and I can't really comment on price. However, I can comment on the design of our cake, the taste, and the service we received.

At our tasting it was hard to choose flavors because everything was so good. But choose we did and we gave Cindy our cake topper and inspiration picture. Cindy offered us the opportunity to have a trial run of our top tier to check the design, and I'm glad we did!

Sometimes our visions don't always translate well into reality, and that was what happened with the picture I had chosen when we saw our trial tier. But we were able to sit down with the decorator and find a way to get the feeling we were going for with a look we would love. And the final result was awesome. I love seeing our cake in our wedding pictures now!

So yes, it looked great. But you should also know that guests are still telling me how good the cake was. We really couldn't have been happier with our cake.

WOW! Our cake was amazing. Not only did it look great, it tasted absolutely delicious. Their cakes did seem a little pricey but it was included in the cost of our venu at the Vandiver Inn so we did not have to worry about it. Cost would not have mattered anyway because their cakes are so tastey that we wouldn't have passed it up!
They also have a variety of flavors which made decision making a little hard.

Also worth noting that they were really nice and easy to work with!

Rita's was the bakery included in our wedding package at the Vandiver Inn, and at first I will admit that I was a little bit nervous about not having my pick.

At our tasting all of my fears were put to rest. We chose the lemon cake with lemon butter cream (though I'm not ashamed to say we pretty much polished off all of the hearty samples). Because we love pie, we also asked if instead of getting a large cake we could do a small cake and an assortment of pies as a part of the packaged with the Vandiver. They were on board and brought out samples of their lust pies. We got three total, a lemon lust, a chocolate lust, and an apple bavarian. All three started with a pecan shortbread crust and then this creamy sweetened cream cheese layer topped with lemon, chocolate, and apples respectively.

They were amazing! So friendly, so delicious. On our day the pies and the cake were just as good as those we tried at our tasting! Plus the cake looked beautiful!

Our wedding was held at the Vandiver Inn. The venue provided any cake of our choosing from Desserts By Rita. We set up an appointment with Cindy to do cake tasting, which was delightful. We browsed through her albums and decided on a three tier cake. Each tier consisted of one layer of strawberry and the other raspberry devil with strawberry butter cream filling between. The cake was iced with a raspberry butter cream icing, which had been tinted a light blue. It was finished with white chocolate seashells to go along with our theme. To say it was delicious does not do it justice. We cannot wait for our one year anniversary to taste it again!

Rita's does REAL CAKE. None of that cardboard stuff that looks pretty from the outside. The coconut cream was the top tier of my cake and it was delicious. There was a cake that I had dreamed about having since before I was engaged. It was a company that had replicated vintage lace from a grandmother's wedding dress in fondant. I reviewed their books and then finally had the nerve to ask if they could do it and the results were spot on. I got my dream cake and I couldn't even believe it when I entered the reception. It was perfect.

I absolutely LOVE Desserts by Rita! They were so amazing and helpful during our tasting, even bringing out other options when I mentioned my love of peanut butter. Everyone complimented our cake because it was so delicious! We had three tiers, including the top tier for our one year anniversary. The other two tiers had two flavors each: chocolate cake with chocolate chips and marble cake with peanut butter fudge icing in between, and vanilla cake and chocolate raspberry with raspberry buttercream in between. Both options were delicious! And, the entire cake was beautiful. They matched our colors wonderfully without going overboard on the vibrant blue. It was exactly what we wanted!! We will definitely be back for any events in the future!

Our wedding was at Vandiver Inn and they work with Desserts by Ritas for the wedding cake. The cake cost was set into our Vandiver bill, so we basically just had to go to Ritas and pick out whatever we wanted. We had no idea what we wanted our cake to look like, but Ritas had tons of pictures to show us and give us ideas. We got to try several different cakes and picked out 5 different flavors for our wedding cake. Ritas has the BEST cake I have ever had! The cake turned out beautifully. All our guests commented on the look and the taste. Everyone was wondering where this place was.

We were married at Vandiver Inn and as a part of the package, our cake came from Rita's. I was a little nervous going in to it, as the thought in my head was it would be a "cookie cutter" style cake since we were required to use them. However, this was FAR from the case. They were open to all of our ideas and the final design was MUCH prettier than any picture we took to them. It was absolutely PERFECT. Not to mention, the cake was DELICIOUS. I am a dessert fanatic and have tried a lot of cakes, and this was by far one of the best. I had several guests tell me they had more than one slice! I can't thank them enough for the beautiful, deliciousness!

Cindy was great in helping us figure out what we wanted for the cake. After our tasting we loved the cake so much we decided to order another for the rehearsal dinner. After the rehearsal dinner, everyone was excited for the actual wedding cake. Both cakes were one-of-a-kind and beautiful!!! I don't think you can go wrong any of the flavors, but we had the chambord cake for rehearsal. For the wedding: strawberry w/strawberry buttercream, raspberry chocolate with raspberry buttercream and then the plain chocolate and vanilla for the picky eaters...although all the flavors were good, i wish we would have done the specialty flavors for the whole thing as those slices went quick!!

Desserts by Rita provided both the wedding cake as well as a groom's cake for our wedding this past weekend. The wedding cake not only looked great, but it tasted wonderful. There are so many choices for the cake flavors, icing, and filling - we could chose a few so our guests had a choice. Our groom's cake was in the shape of the UMD Terp (where my husband and I met) and was perfect.

Full disclosure: Rita and Cindy are my aunts, but I completely believe in their cakes and know that they go above and beyond to make sure brides are happy with their cakes.

My wedding cake was beautiful and decorated to match a design on my dress. (My dress was not white, but blue with a floral design.)

The cake was delicious - the best wedding cake I have ever had. This was the only wedding I've ever been at where the cake disappeared - several of my quests had two slices and wished they could have more.

The only problem you may have is choosing from the mouth-watering flavors of cake!

Our wedding cake from Desserts by Rita's was not only very beautiful but also very delicious! Many guests commented that it was one of the best tasting wedding cakes they had ever had. The cake is so moist and there are a variety of flavors so you don't have to have plain old white cake. At our tasting, we tried several types and decided on the bottom tier lemon, the middle tier chocolate raspberry, and the top tier was a combo of both (I can't wait to eat it on our one year anniversary!) Cindy is very easy to work with and really knows what she is doing. I gave her a basic idea of what I wanted (like what colors), but told her to do what she thought was best, and it turned out so much better than what I could have imagined on my own...so don't be afraid to give her some artistic freedom. The cake was decorated beautifully with pink "ribbon" around the bottom of each tier and light green details. Also, Cindy used some hydrangeas in between the layers which was the perfect touch. I am going to start getting our every occasion cakes (birthday, etc) there because they are really delicious!!! I HIGHLY recommend getting your wedding cake (and any other cakes) here!

Our wedding cake not only looked amazing, but it tasted amazing!! Cindy at Desserts by Rita really captured what we were looking for in a wedding cake. It was calla lilly-themed, with maroon ribbons interspersed throughout the adornments. Our cake was placed on a victorian stand, so each of the three levels were separated. This made the cake prettier when cut and served to our guests. While Cindy had many flavors of cake and icings to try, we went with the party-pleasers of chocolate and yellow cake with buttercream frosting. Yum! I think I had 3 slices that night! I can't wait to enjoy the topper in a year! And we'll definitely be going back to Desserts by Rita for other cakes in the future!

Cindy and her team at Rita's exeeded all of our expectations. We chose to have three different cakes all in different flavors. Each one was prepared with care and an exceptional attention to detail. And above all, there wasn't one piece of cake left over! ...not because there wasn't enough, but rather because our guests were going back for two and three pieces!! I have never attended a wedding where the guests were raving about the cake. We even received comments about in weeks after our big day. It was so good that we will use Desserts by Rita for all of our events in the future whether it is a birthday or another special celebration. Simply the best cake we have ever had!!

YUMM-O! I received so many compliments about my wedding cake. We had a three tier simple chocolate, vanilla, & lemon cake with vanilla butter cream icing. When we went for our tasting, I was shown several sample pictures and chose a design that fit exactly what I was looking for. Also, I requested flowers placed on the cake. It looked great.

The cake was amazing! Many of my guests commented that it was the best tasting wedding cake they had ever had. I'm a low maintenance bride and this was an easy experience. My husband and I went there, picked out the flavors we liked and a design, then a couple weeks before the wedding I dropped off my cake toppers, then it was delivered perfectly, as requested, and on time. I honestly didn't think about the cake until right before I was walking down the aisle and my photographers said "Hey would you like to see your cake? I have a picture." I will be returning to Rita's for all my party cakes in the future (and some other treats on the side I'm sure).

Desserts by Rita created my wedding cake exactly as I requested. Everyone though it tasted delicious! I was very happy with how it turned out, although it did have some small cracks in the icing (my wedding was outdoors a possible cause) which I noticed in the pictures which probably could have been fixed. The cake tasting was awesome, so many choices and everything was amazing! Over all I was happy with my cake and would recommend to anyone! I have already gone back to Desserts by Rita for cupcakes!

We had cupcakes from Desserts by Rita for our wedding at Vandiver Inn in Havre de Grace, they were absolutely delicious. The staff was very friendly when we went in for the tasting and we were able to taste all sorts of yummy flavors. Since they team with Vandiver we decided to go with them, but when we went to the tasting we were sold, I can't even explain how good the cakes were. We went with a variety of flavors with different colored rosette buttercream icing (white, navy and burnt orange to go with our wedding colors) every cupcake was beautifully done and just as yummy. We had a rosette cake for our "anniversary" tier and then two cupcakes at the top as a bride and groom, they were adorable, topped with a tiara and veil and a top hat and bow, so cute! We didn't wait long to eat our cake tier because when we got home from our two week honeymoon that was all we could think of and dove right in. We will certainly be back for our anniversary to get a duplicate!

I KNEW WE WERE TAKING A BIT OF A RISK ORDERING A WEDDING CAKE THAT WE WERE NOT ABLE TO TEST TASTE BEFORE HAND BUT WE LIVE IN PA SO THAT WAS THE EASIEST WAY TO DO THINGS. I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED WITH THE WAY OUR CAKE TURNED OUT. THEY WERE ABLE TO USE A FEW PHOTOS I HAD FOUND FOR INSPIRATION AND IT LOOKED EXACTLY AS I HAD PICTURED. THE BEST PART ABOUT IT HOWEVER WAS THE TASTE! I DONT THINK I HAVE EVER HAD SUCH A DELICIOUS TASTING CAKE AND ALL OF OUR GUESTS RAVED ABOUT IT AND ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THAT CAKE!

Desserts by Rita was a delight. When we went in for the tasting, my fiance and I were in awe of the moist cake and delicious icing! The flavors were amazing, it was so hard to choose! We ended up choosing 3 different flavors for each layer: vanilla and chocolate with fudge, coconut, and chocolate with fudge. Cindy created a beautiful design that coordinated perfectly with our wedding colors. Cindy advised us that with the warm weather, we should have our 3 layers separated as to avoid sliding. The cake showed up on time and beautiful. We saved the top layer and I cannot wait to eat it on our first anniversary! Best wedding cake I have EVER had!

We used a Rita's location in Ocean City, Maryland. The designer met with us a few weeks before the wedding to let us taste the delicious varieties and discuss what we wanted. Getting married at the beach with a butterfly theme, all elements were worked into our small wedding cake and it was BEAUTIFUL and YUMMY.
My only issue with the vendor was that the day of the wedding we were on a tight schedule and got a call that morning due to an issue on there side that threw a slight kink in the schedule, however, it worked out well. I also got the impression on the phone that had this majorly impacted us, they would have made it right.

We went to desserts by Rita because they work directly through the Vandiver Inn (but they also work on their own as well). So we were a little nervous because the cake is included with the venue's package and we didn't know how good it would be. But WOW!

They are so nice and set up a really nice cake tasting with you, and will answer the question, "what flavor is this again?" like a million times still with a smile on their faces. And even though we had our cake included in the package, we still got to choose the flavor and style and design, and we didn't feel limited at all in selection!

We went with a cupcake cake, which allowed us to get a ton of flavors. And the top layer was a mini cake that we got to take home. It came out beautifully!!! We got so many compliments on the design, as well as the taste! We saw people taking some home with them and in the end there were none left, so obviously they were popular! In the end we were super happy with Rita's.

I got "Rita's Delight" cakes for my wedding. I have received so many compliments about the cake. It was delicious!
Yellow cake topped with custard and crushed pineapple then iced with whipped cream and covered with coconut. We picked the cakes up from the Havre de Grace location. Because our cakes were iced with whipped cream we had limited decoration options which was fine, because we wanted the cake decorated as it normally is (which looks gorgeous). We covered the cake with fresh flowers. We gave them very little notice (one week) and were VERY pleased :-)

Rita's has a bunch of options and is very willing to work with their customers.

They also have three locations; Havre de Grace, Bishopsville, and Ocean City.


Thanks Cindy!

The cake was absolutely delicious. The only thing was we had to pick up the cake ourselves and transport it to the wedding site. We also used a cake stand and needed to return it the next day which was kind of a hassle. It would have been better if we could have returned it a within a few days. The cake itself was gorgeous and tasted wonderful! We got a lemon layer, a mix of chocolate and vanilla layer and a chocolate raspberry layer.

Desserts by Rita's made our cupcake centerpieces for our wedding at the Vandiver Inn. When I originally told Cindy about the idea, she was so excited! She loved the idea of making a cupcake centerpiece...which looked like roses since they cupcakes were in a flower pot with rose shaped icing (since she used to be a floral designer). However, when I called her a month before the wedding, she did not remember that I had asked her to make the centerpieces, she only remembered that I wanted cupcakes. Needless to say, she made them and they were a big hit! Everyone loved the cupcakes. We ordered three different flavors. People bring up the cupcakes everytime they mention our wedding. However, I was disappointed by the color of the icing. Cindy told me she could match David Bridal's watermelon and tangerine. The colors looked nothing like the swatches, in fact they the pink was more like a purple.

Desserts By Rita responded with the following comments:

I have given your review some thought, yes I knew I was doing cupcakes for you in your containers , but you didn't bring them to me until about a week prior to you wedding, so trying to remember the unknown is difficult. Looking back at my photos the colors done in butter cream was correct. Butter cream cannot always be as crisp as if you may have done them with artificial flavored icings .But according to my color swatches it was dead on, it was a pleasure doing your wedding and I wish you the very best.

Desserts by Rita did a good job with our 5 tier wedding cake. It looked beautiful on seperate tiers. It was fun being able to to have four different flavors to appeal to all of our guests tastes. Completely YUMMY! The only downfall would be that our cake tasting felt rushed. If we weren't a laid back couple things could've gone downhill. Overall, it was nicely done! We hope to go back for desserts just for special occassions.

We used Desserts by Rita for our wedding at the Vandiver Inn. They worked seamlessly with the Vandiver staff and before we knew it, the cake was there. It tasted great, but the presentation was just ok. The cake looked like it was starting to melt by the time we saw it. I will say that it was 100+ degrees that day so maybe the weather was the culprit. Overall though I would say the cake was fine and they were very easy to work with.

The cake was excellent. I mean, no joke, best wedding cake I've ever had. It was rich and moist and the perfect icing-to-cake ratio. Rita and her sister run this business and they are extremely accomodating. We met once to go over flavors (bring coffee to best enjoy your tray of goodies ;) and to discuss decoration. They went over our wedding decor in detail to be sure to best match the setting. And they did a great job. Since I was getting married at the Vandiver, the cake from Desserts by Rita was included in the price, and Vandiver took care of all the details. We only went ot Desserts by Rita that one time (months before) and then the cake showed up on our wedding day. No fuss, just yummyness.

We went to Rita's and had a tasting and decided to go ahead and order our cake that night for our wedding. We chose a few different flavors that we loved and a design that we liked. The cake arrived at the same time the ceremony was starting, my husband was getting ready to send someone to the grocery store to pick up some kind of cake because he thought they had forgotten about us. The cake was delicious, but the design was not what we had talked about or what was on the contract/order sheet. The squares were supposed to be shifted/rotated squares but they were simply stacked on top of each other. The middle tier of our cake was also missing the scroll design that was requested. I would recommend them because the cake tasted great, but make sure you follow up and get the cake to look like what it was supposed to. It is your wedding day, and it cannot be redone.

Rita's is a small, cute little dessert shop in Havre de Grace. I bought my wedding cake there and it was absolutely delicious! You can go for a tasting before the wedding which was really nice. They have a variety of different flavors. My wedding cake had one layer that was lemon and two layers that were double fudge. The cake itself was outstanding, the only negative thing that I could say about Rita's is the way the cake was decorated was very simple. I feel that Rita's probably does not create as beautiful of wedding cakes as other venues may do, but there are cakes are definitely delicious!

The only reason why I'm not giving Desserts by Rita a 5 star review is that my cake did not come in the shape that I requested. The flavor and texture of the cake was fabulous! We received rave reviews from our guests. But imagine my dissapointment when I was escorted by the wedding coordinator to sneak a peak at the cake and saw that my hexagon shaped cake that was supposed to be topped with sugared calla-lillies, lily of the valley and the same floral ribbon used by my florist was instead a round cake with curly ribbon and three tiny sugared calla-lillies on top. Luckily the staff at the Vandiver took the flower cuttings that were delivered by my florist to decorate the table and used them to create a pretty topping to the cake instead. I was very dissapointed that I did not receive the look that I designed. However, none of my guests knew that there was a mix-up and they all thought it was lovely and it was the flavors I requested.

I do still recommend using Desserts by Rita's because they're cakes are so deliscious. However, I implore you to check with them often to make sure that you get what you want on your special day. I really wish I had.

We used Desserts by Rita for our wedding cake because they worked with our venue, the Vandiver Inn and offered a package deal. For the most part, this worked out for us. The cake looked lovely, tasted absolutely delicious and was delivered on time. When we arrived at our tasting a few minutes late they didn't toss us out, so those are all great things that helped our day go smoothly.

It wasn't a perfect experience, though. Our main request in terms of decoration was for each tier of the cake to be piled high with berries. We gave them a picture and a list that included strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. We also asked if it might be possible to use fresh currants (we'd seen a picture that looked incredible), but the baker told us she didn't have the faintest idea where to get currants so that wouldn't be possible unless we could provide them. We understood and said that was fine, and we paid an extra price for the berries.

When the cake arrived, it had some berries on it, but they were resting on bunches of grapes, still on the stem. This disappointed us for a couple of reasons--the first is that it just wasn't the look we were going for. It also made it difficult to eat the cake without getting your fingers messy, because each guest had to pull the grapes off of the stems. Also, I have to say that grapes don't taste nearly as good with buttercream frosting and cake as, say, raspberries and strawberries. Additionally, we'd paid extra specifically for the berries, and felt like the grapes may have been substituted as a lower cost alternative. It looked nice, but wasn't what we had in mind or thought we'd paid for.

We also thought that the bakery was limited in terms of decorations and options. They don't do fondant, and they said that about half of their cake flavors wouldn't work for our wedding because they were really just heavy winter cakes, and we were getting married at the end of summer. This limited our selection quite a bit. Again, what they offered was really delicious, but I would have liked to see more options. I guess I've watched a few too many food network shows and read too many baking blogs for my own good.

So, in conclusion, the end product was easy and delicious and, for us, totally worth the setbacks due to the cost and the ease of working with them through our vendor. If I were in the area I might stop back by there for a tasty birthday cake or something, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them if I wanted a simple but elegant wedding cake. If you're looking for something with more options, or fancier, or have some ideas outside the box--well, I might recommend shopping around a little more.

The cakes at Desserts by Rita are very tasty and they have some very good flavors to choose from. One drawback is that they do not use fondant for their primary decorating, so you are somewhat limited in what you can have. The only complaint that I have is that, during our consult, the consultant informed me that they cannot stack cakes if "it's too hot out." Being a cake designer myself, I know this is not an issue if dowel rods are used in between layers. I was not happy with the display of my cakes as they were on a very unattractive stand and not stacked as I had asked them to be. They also put designs on my cake that did not allow my cake topper to be put on which annoyed me since I wasted money to get it and no one could see it sitting next to it, hidden by the cake itself.

Desserts By Rita responded with the following comments:

It was explained to you that in the event of extreme heat ( of which the day you were married it was over 90 ) that I use cake stands to prevent cakes from sliding. You never mentioned you wanted fondant all over- we could have easily accomodated that, we did your flowers in fondant. There were dowels in the cake. We have done over 3000 cakes out of this location and I know how the hot and humid weather effects moist cakes w/ buttercream icing. The Vandiver does not have anyplace for me to keep your cake until the reception time, that is why we deliver right before your reception starts. I was not aware of a cake topper, but I did the exact deign you requested w/ the design going onto the top as per picture supplied, the Vandiver always puts the cake toppers on , because it is an outside venue they found it was best for them to put it on in the event of wind, that design would not have interfered a cake topper. Please check over your order that I gave you a copy of as I followed it exactly or come in and I'd be happy to go over it with you. I and the other young ladies that work for me work so hard to please each and every customer, this is why this saddens me to read a review such as this. It was truely a pleasure working with you and I wish you the very best.

Cake looked great and tasted great. We received many compliments. Cake was supposed to be decorated with leftover flowers from the florist..baker was supposed to take care of the details. Cake was delivered on time, but no one stayed to finish the decorating. My mom ended up doing it before the reception without telling me, and it wasn't decorated the way I wanted it. In the grand scheme of things it wasn't a big deal, but for the price we paid it should have been done correctly.

The cake flavor is what drew in my son in law for us to choose this vendor. My daughter, however did not have a satisfying experience in email communication with the vendor. The response was so slow, that we thought that maybe we should have been communicating about the baker with the caterer. Even though it was confirmed that we were not suppose to go through the caterer, it wasn't until the caterer contacted Cindy, that we got a response from her. Due to not feeling confident about the email communication, we made a trip to visit Cindy to give her a specific drawing of the cake, along with magazine pictures and specific instructions for the detail on the cake. These instructions were not followed, as to the size and coloring of the butterflies to be placed on the cake. Fondant was used only on the top tier to supposedly give a ribbon/sash affect. The ribbon was uneven and drooping, not a hot day either. The scroll work design looked like it was stopped and started. Scroll work should be consistent, if done professionally. It was never conveyed in the two visits with Desserts by Rita, that there was going to be an additional fee from what was allowed by the caterer. It was certainly a surprise to see the extra cost. When I questioned the caterer, I was told that the caterer thought that Cindy has discussed that with us. There was never ANY cost discussed. Therefore, we thought everything was within the caterer's dollars. Communication is essential in this type of business. Equally, it is just as essential for the vendor to listen to the consumer.
Outcome-Once the disappointment was conveyed to Cindy, an apology (I'm sorry. My sister and I thought the cake was beautiful) was given verbally to myself (MOB). No apology or anything else rendered to my daughter and son-in-law. : (

Desserts By Rita responded with the following comments:

First , I never blow off a customer,I'm sorry if you felt that way, we strive to make every customer happy, to say the design was aweful is totally untrue and harsh. The picture you brought us was for a 3 tier cake , we did a 2 layer 8'' cake and cupcakes and did what we felt was as close to the design look you wanted .Unfortunately sometimes , and I may add not too often there are some we cannot match as much as some would like. I have learned from this and I make a sample cake design for the bride to see what her vision will look like. It is a shame that 1 and half years later you are still unhappy and that the wonderful flavors didn't warrant a better responce from you. Wising you the very best for a happy life.

All I can say is, it is a good thing that their cakes taste so good. We ordered our wedding and grooms cake from the West Ocean City shop and I can't tell you what a hassle it was from start to finish. Rita is a flake, she missed our initial appointment without any explanation or apology. There was no one there to guide us through our tasting, we were just given 5 slices of cake to go. Leery from her initial impression I ordered with her anyway. The desserts are known locally and are carried at many restaurants in our town so I figured she must be a better vendor as far as the actual "business" side of things. Wrong!!!!!!

The day before my wedding my mom drove fresh flowers (over an hours drive) to her shop to be used on my wedding cake. After being assured that she would be in the shop that day (over the phone a couple days prior) my mom showed up to a locked up shop with no one around. After finally reaching her by phone she was instructed to leave the flowers with the package shop next door, Rita was on her way and would pick them up in less than an hour. My mom left the flowers with the manager next door and went on to one of the billion other errands she had to do that day.

Well the cake was delivered on time, but there were no fresh flowers. Where our $50.00 worth of fresh flowers were supposed to be were cheap (I mean cheap!) silk white lilies with blue glitter! Apparently she called my parents house the morning of the wedding to say the flowers had died and what did we want to do... I was at the wedding site by that time and she did not even bother calling my cell which was her main contact #. My dad told her something to the effect of "make it work." What blew me away was during one of our phone conversations she told me of how often she goes to Food Lion across the street to buy fresh flowers to use on her cakes because they have great prices and a great selection... So why didn't she replace the flowers she let die with something of an equal quality??? How hard would it have been for her to take that extra step after she screwed up and go across the street and buy us some fresh flowers to go on the cake... but just like the initial consultation, we weren't worth her time.

Like I said, it's a good thing their cakes taste so good because their service is pathetic.

I have to say this one of my worst experiences! The cakes was one of the biggest things to me, I love desserts, and I broke into tears when I saw my cake it looked like a 5yr old did my cake! Nothing like I had envisioned or STRESSED to them I wanted! I gave Cindy pictures of a cake with butterflies on it, while we were there I told her several times I want this one and not this butterfly at all! She even circled the one I wanted! The day of my wedding when I went to take a peak at it I saw she did the butterfly I stressed not to do, they did it anyway! Also they were suppose to be bright because I had five bright colors for summer, well lets say they looked like easter egg colors nice and pastel! I can not say the disappointment I had with my cake, I was so excited only to be extremely let down! My mom told them several times the cake was a big deal to me, and they let me down horribly! The top was supppose to be pleated and circle of flowers in the middle. Well it looked like the literally fllung the pleating on and the bundle of flowers were all spread out! Honestly I wanted to smash the cake and tell everyone I didnt have a cake! I supplied swarovski butterflies for the cake it helped the cake to look a little better. Not one person said anything about my cake, as for favor it was ok nothing to brag about! Communication with them was horrible too, we had thought about not going with them because of that but everyone said they had good cakes, and my husband loved it when had the cake tasting. I will always regret this decision!!!

This makes me so sad to read this dissapointing review,we do try our very best to satisfy every customer, for such a responce as this it's just plain very upsetting to me, when Rita and I set this cake up at Swan Hbr- we felt it was a beautiful cake. It has taught me one thing to do a mock up cake for the bride to see before her big day.This bride came in a week before the wedding, which was only the first time I got to meet with her and I felt I had gone over everything with her. All I can say is , I'm so sorry for your dissapointment, this is the 1st time I've ever had a bride as unhappy as this and I'm very sorry.
