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

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.

Hands down best wedding cake ever. The flavor's were amazing and the cake was decorated exactly like I pictured it. We saved our first tier for our 1 year anniversary and I cannot wait for it. We also have our son's birthday cakes made here, again they are amazing.

I can't say enough about how amazing Rita's cake was for my wedding day. It was a smaller cake ordered from her bakery near Ocean City for my intimate beach wedding of about 25 people. Before even tasting this delicious cake, Rita was so gracious and helpful in providing directions to my father who was to come pick up the cake from her baking facility. The cake itself was so moist and delicious and the strawberry buttercream icing was to die for - I can hardly wait a year to enjoy the cake top! I want to stop by the store next time I'm near Ocean City to pick up some cupcakes. Thanks for making us a delicious ending to a beautiful day!

Desserts by Rita was fantastic to work with. They had the best tasting cakes by far (which made it hard to choose a flavor since they were all pretty tasty). The delivery was perfect and the attention to detail was amazing. They made sure that the cake did not sit in the sun as it would have melted. They are very proud of the cakes and the work that they do and it shows in the final product. Couldn't be happier.

Rita’s cakes are heavenly, and I don’t really even like cake that much. My husband and I were not too thrilled about the whole wedding cake tradition; we would have been happy having a tower of bagels and calling it a day. Despite neither of us having a real sweet tooth, once we tried Rita’s cakes, we were definitely onboard with the whole wedding cake tradition. Rita was wonderful to work with; she executed my wedding cake vision perfectly and to sum it up, she makes the best cakes I have ever tasted. We did a few different layers; my favorites were the orange and the lemon-flavored cakes. If you are getting married in Maryland, definitely stop by Rita’s little shop in Havre de Grace and give her cakes a try. You won’t be disappointed! And you might just turn into a cake convert, like me. ☺

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.
