The Cakery has a very small storefront in behind and old shopping center. It is not visible from the road. There is no dining, but there is counter service to purchase the most delicious and decadent baked items. There are large cookies, cakes, fruit tarts, eclairs, and chocolate desserts. I have to make a special trip to go there, and... More

The Cakery is in a tiny spot in the rear of a strip mall. With no foot traffic it should've been closed within six months of its opening. One cannot even see it from the road or the main parking lot of the shopping center. Yet, The Cakery is going strong many years after it opened. Why? Everything they make... More

There are not too many true bakeries left around. The Cakery is great to have in town. The selection is limited but it is delicious. And if you order ahead of time they will make almost anything. People just love it when I bring a gift from here. Try the chocolate cake if you dare

Worth the price. Everything I've ever had has been delicious. A real gem of a place in Bowie. Family operated. Very personal. Always satisfied!

We order items from the Cakery for special occasions. The prices are bit more than others but so well worth it. You always get your money's worth. The quality and taste of all products are excellent. We consistently hear compliments from family and friends on all Cakery product we serve. Extremely nice staff!

The BEST bakery within 20 miles - I just WISH they were open on Sunday mornings so I could bring the freshness home THAT day! Try the chocolate croissants - YUM.

The Cakery is a hidden gem that all true Bowie citizens know about! The cake is clearly handmade. It is very dense and rich. If I am looking for a light, fluffy cake, this is not the place to go but I am never ever disappointed with anything there.

Hubby ordered a deliciously fresh fruit tart for my birthday. It looked as appetizing as it was delectable. We've also tried the carrot cake and it didn't disappoint either. The location is on the backside of the building, so I almost missed it. They should be more on display on the frontside, in my opinion. Small and quaint and eager... More

We recently got a cake from the cakery. The decoration was just as I ordered it. The cake was very fresh and my guest seemed to really enjoy it. Service was good the day I ordered it and the day I picked it up.
