I'm embarrassed I ever worked there. the cakes are boxed (Duncan Hines with extra eggs added in) & the buttercream is made entirely with shortening. Chocolate icing is shipped in from a company in giant buckets.... More

My family has been getting cakes from Cannon's for as long as I can remember. Their cakes are delicious and they could not be any more helpful. Have never been disappointed with anything from Cannon's.

Purchased cream puffs Friday before Christmas. Gave as gift to someone, so embarrassed. Stuffing tasted like it was filled with cottage cheese. Dough wasn't even cooked through white in color - not golden color as a cream puff shell should be.

Being a newcomer to the area (to the northeast, in general) I had been loking foward to finding a good, fresh, local bakery. I arrived 7min before closing-only to have the two clerks finish helping the customers they were serving, then proceed to ignore me. Blatantly. Refused to acknowledge me. Make eye contact. ANYTHING. Even if they had just said... More

Cannon's is by far, the best bakery in the area. Their wedding cakes are beautiful and flavorful. Baked goods are excellent and fresh.

My husband's cousin got married in Delaware, had one of their yellow cakes with lemon filling, and it was the best cake I have had in a long time. They are the best for cake decorating supplies (over in their store across the highway) in the area besides going to Michaels or A. C. Moore

Never disappointed when buying from Cannon's. Steve and Melissa and the gang are friendly and helpful. Whether ordering for a special occasion or stopping in for some cookies or just something sweet you can't miss.

I have been going to Cannon's for years. I live in Elkton,But I make the trip because no other bakery compares. I make and decorate cakes myself but I still go their to buy their cakes n cupcakes. Service is great and so is the price. Think I will head there today!
