    So AH-mazing!

    My cake was included in my wedding package with the venue. The cake is amazing! I met with him directly to discuss my cake vision, and he did exactly what I wanted. The tasting went so well, and all of the flavors are to die for!! If I lived closer, I’d be ordering from them all the time! Highly recommend!!

    Best cake in Delaware

    The title really says it all. We tasted cake at a few different bakeries, but Dana had the best taste by far. In addition, Dana met with us personally, which went a long way towards building our trust in him. He was even able to recreate a cake design from a picture my wife found on pinterest. It was a perfect replica, but I guarantee that ours tasted better.

    DREAM Wedding Cake1

    Dana's went above and beyond to make my fairytale cake a reality! I couldn't even believe how beautiful it looked, and how AMAZING it tasted! seriously. The apple spice cake with buttercream was an absolute dream. We couldn't even wait a month to eat our top tier! They were incredibly easy to work with and their work was STUNNING.

    Desserts by Dana is my first choice for all types of desserts. I have used them for my and my wife's 40th Birthday cakes. We also stop in for cupcakes and other treats on a regular basis. Dana was able to produce a Justin Timberlake themed cake for my wife's 40th Birthday that was outstanding. I still am getting compliments on how great the cake looked and how much better it tasted. Amaretto Cake with Lemon curd filling is unbelievable. Don't forget to tell Dana that DJ Ted Rock recommended Desserts by Dana.
