Birthday Cake Fit For a Queen (or Two)

I wanted a specifically-designed birthday cake to celebrate the close birthdays of two female friends. I ordered the 8-inch cake about a week before the scheduled party date, and the cake was exactly what I ordered. My guests of honor and other guests truly adored "The Queens Cake" for its design... read more

i had a lemon blueberry cake for my 50th birthday and was given a Sweet Maria's cake. The cake was awesome as usual but this time, the blueberrys were not. They felt like they had a skin on them. Very dissapointing considering the cost of the cake. It was kind of embarrassing serving the cake. When I called to let... More

This is the best cake bakery in the area. Fresh, moist, delicious! Ordered a Black Forrest Cake to end to a “pot luck dinner and wine pairing” with friends last weekend. WOW! The freshest whipped cream, moist cake and plenty of cherry filling. Plenty of “OOS” and “AHHHHHS”. Perfect with the port. No doubt the cakes are very expensive -... More

All you have to say is, "it's from sweet maria's" and my friends and family will form a line quickly. Their cakes cannot be beat! SO GOOD! SO FRESH! I have ordered cakes for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays and I have NEVER been disappointed. So delicious. They are pricey but worth it!

I ordered a cake for my husbands birthday... It was rum, pineapple and coconut... The pineapple tasted like it was canned and there was not much of a rum flavor ... You would taste it when you bit into the pineapple and it threw the whole thing off , .. But not worth the price , too high!
