I have ordered cakes from sweet maria' s for over 20 years including my wedding cake. But i had just ordered a cake for my daughters birthday and it was lousy. The cake was clearly over cooked and dry. When i returned the cake the woman who helped me was very rude. Threw out 75 percent of the cake and... More

This was the worst cake I have ever had. I am better off making pillsbury boxed cake. The girl I spoke to was in a different world and I ordered the pineapple cake which had pieces of what seemed to be old dry pineapple. Maybe this place is excelling because it's in Connecticut but I just moved here from New... More

Several years ago we had Sweet Marias make our wedding cake and people still rave about it so it was natural that when we helped throw a big, important 75th Birthday Party for most of the same people we knew we had to go to Sweet Maria's for their Cupcakes. I knew we wanted cupcakes because there was no way... More

I've been ordering cakes for awhile from Sweet Maria's. Despite the premium cost, they were well worth it. The last cake I ordered, however, looked beautiful, but tasted stale. It seemed that the cake may have been previously frozen. It didn't taste fresh. We threw out half the cake! Needless to say, I don't order cakes from Sweet Maria's anymore.

We have been going to Sweet Maria's for the past few years and I have to say the cakes are delicious! They are a little pricey but they do a fantastic job!

They have the best cakes. I love the Heath Bar one the most. Very very sweet though and some may say too sweet. I say never !! Chip and Ernies is also delish. My husbands favorite is choc cake with bananas in the middle and choc whipped cream icing.. I have tried so many of their flavors and cupcakes and... More

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, freshness, and flavor. Buttercream frosting, yellow cake, with chocolate... More

The cakes from here are the absolute best I ever tasted! Every time we get a cake from Sweet Maria's we are never disappointed. The cake tastes so fresh and delicious!

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

Everything is fresh and delicious. Just wish I lived closer. The cookie trays for the holidays are wonderful.
