Beautiful and delicious
We had our wedding at Deerfield and we needed to select from 1 of 3 bakeries. We chose Dana's. Our cake tasting was so much fun. Dana is a great guy and a great baker. We chose to have a 4 tier cake. Cookies and cream with white chocolate mousse and then red velvet with cannoli cream. Let me tell you, this was delicious and gorgeous. We cannot wait until our 1 year anniversary to eat our top tier!Sent on 03/08/2020

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!!Sent on 08/01/2019

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.Sent on 06/03/2019
Beautiful cakes and they taste amazing!!
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.
Breath taking creations which taste amazing! Highly recommend Dana for your wedding or event! Word to the wise, don't bring your diet.
