You Can't Beat The Italian Cream Cake!

This bakery is tucked into a strip mall in Waterbury and has been a staple in this time for many years. I have not found a better Italian Cream Cake other than going to New York. Their cannoli's are also awesome. Good value.

After being introduced to a splendid birthday cake from Sweet Maria's all others pale in comparison. All fresh ingredients, fruits and best of all a real whipped cream frosting. Amazing selections of mouth watering combinations including some old favorites like Applesauce, walnut spice cake with cream cheese frosting. No sawdust cake with crisco frosting here! Heading there tomorrow for another... More

We always get cakes from Sweet Maria's at work. The are not too sweet and the berry one is loaded with fruit. Much better than a grocery store cake.

Had my wedding cake and cookies done by Sweet Marias. It was wonderful and done exactly the way I wanted. Price was within reason and I was very satisfied.

I've only had one, the Very Berry, but it was wonderful and I can't wait to try more! All fresh and yummy without being sickening sweet. Just perfect!

My family and I have been special-ordering desserts and cakes from Sweet Maria's for years, as well as purchasing products with no advanced notice. They do beautiful work, particularly on request. Example: for my mother's retirement party (as a pharmacist for nearly 50 years), I wanted to make party favors: cookies in the shape of prescription bottles, with piping in... More
