REVIEWS OF Desserts By Dana IN Delaware

Karriem Kanston

Awesome desserts and service. I had to buy cupcakes and a cake. Best dessert place on the globe.

Really disappointing. The cakes were so old and stale and the icing literally had no flavor.

I saw Dana at a bridal expo and the cake looked amazing and was delicious. I used this bakery for my wedding cake. It looked beautiful and was delicious! He did a wonderful job on my wedding cake and helped make my special day perfect!

Mark Pescatrice

Friendly staff, great selection of desserts. If you are going to have dessert, get it from here. The chocolate items are to die for. If you plan to go out for dinner, plan ahead and get something here instead. I can't wait to try their cupcakes.

Are you looking for great, delicious, scrumptious, chic, contemporary or traditional looking cake/cupcakes? Then you are looking in the right place. Dana and his team do a FAB job with making sure everything is exactly what you asked for and MORE. I had ordered a cake display from dessertsbydana for my office, and only provided the color scheme and that was it, Dana was able to breathe my personality into the cake and the attention to detail was amazing. The cupcakes they provided for our store opening was extra moist and absolutely delicious, my visit the Delaware store is always a pleasant one. Very professional, easy to work with and I can feel their enthusiasm during conversations and know they will come through for me and my clients. Thanks so much to Dana and the team at Dessertsbydana. Book them, you can go wrong. Xoxo Lynn.

Very pleasant great variety awesome service Dana is very helpful friendly one of the best in the business.

Bobby Robinson

Outstanding desserts everytime I order. The butter cream cake I last ordered was the star of my sister's graduation celebration. The cake was as appealing to the eye as it was the taste buds. Also, the creme brûlée from the shop was the best my wife ever had and that is her favorite dessert.

Deane Shokes

We were visiting in Pennsylvania and needed dessert to take to a dinner. We were referred to Desserts by Dana, which we thought opened at 9 am. We arrived at 9:35, dismayed to learn it opened at 10. A very kind employee saw us at the door, opened up and sold us some of the best desserts we've ever had!! Wonderful customer service as well at desserts that were a huge hit at the dinner! Thank you.

Amber Clay

Whenever I need Dana and his team (even if it's last minute), they're willing to deliver! My favorite desserts are: peanut butter cheesecake and death by chocolate. My favorite cake flavor is vanilla chocolate chip.

Chip Hill

This place is great. The food was amazing and there are so many choices! It feels like you can go back no matter what kind of treat you're in the mood for. Thank god the staff is so patient because I has so many questions. The atmosphere is so relaxing I could spend the entire day!

Wayne Green

Dana has the most inventive mind I have ever seen. The quality and taste of his dessert is perfect and unimaginable. He took a simple idea and made it a masterpiece.

James Davis

We frequently visit the bakery for cup cakes and individual mini cakes. A must try is the mango cheese cake. Awesome cakes with great service. They also made our wedding cake a few years ago it was beautiful. The flavorful cake was delicious and we received many compliments. Even after our 1-year anniversary from frozen it was still moist

Phinon Woodside

Great desserts! The only reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is the price of their products.

Jack Davies

Cake is good but staff is awful. Hope your business continue to grow! :) thank you

ashish Mishra

My first visit - carrot cake . It is the best cake I ever had . Then I tried cheese cake and salted cake . Must visit place and no body can beat the taste.

Dominick Hayman

I've had cakes from Dana for a few special occasions and they ALWAYS turn out to be the highlight of the event. Not ashamed to say I've gone so far as driving multiple hours to deliver cupcakes requested by my girlfriend...needless to say, she was not disappointed.

Shaka PILE

Jonathan Murray

My wife graduated from nursing school in February 2016 so I called desserts by Dana. Chef Dana took my order personally over the phone and made her dream cake that she was absolutely amazed with. I suggest anyone looking for a gourmet cake or pastries in the Wilmington,DE or Philadelphia,PA regions call dessert by Dana first you won't be disappointed!

Eric Kuessner

My friend hired this baker to make a wonderful cake for her wedding. However, the cake had many flaws. To top it off the baker was not willing to fix it not has he returned calls regarding the unprofessional cake he was hired to make.

Sarah W

Pretentious, no follow through, poor workmanship. It seems to me when Dana tries he knocks it out of the park but those times are not as often as it should be. I recommend buying a Betty Crocker mix and giving it a go yourself because it can't be much worse!!!

Susan Braun

I haven't been there yet but my husband and I are planning a visit soon. Dana was in Minneapolis, Minnesota at my husband's union health fair on April 2. We enjoyed watching him in the cooking demonstrations booth.

Brittany Shanley

By far the cutest bakery with the most beautiful and delicious goods!! So reasonably priced it blows my mind! My new found addiction for sweet treats at a reasonable price!

Kelly Kent

We were not a fan of the cupcakes frosting. Greasy.

Arlene Smalls

Great Cake and moist and flavorable

Stephanie Drye

Dana and staff provided delicious and wonderful cakes and desserts for my wedding. My guests came back for seconds and thirds and the venue staff said that the spread was one of the best they've ever tasted! Wonderful experience

kelvin harmon

This place has wonderful customer service, Excellent Desserts at Reasonable Prices. My Daughter and Son in Law loved their Wedding Cake, my other children always wants Dana's Desserts at the Birthdays. We had a wonderful Custom Sheet Cake for our Family Reunion and many of the Reunion participants have requested that I bring that Cake back again this year.


Professional, quality, superior work!! There is no price tag to match a combination of the three. Has become my #1 go-to bakery...

Amanda Cochran

The cake I ordered was beautiful and delicious. I would definitely use again and definitely recommend desserts by dana to people

Ronnie Brown


Excellent customer service and the mango cheesecake was phenomenal

Yadira Ramos

Excellent desserts and cakes for events! Death by Chocolate is literally one of my favorite desserts ever. Reliable and really able to execute/create cakes that fall in line with my vision (have used him for shower cakes, groom cake, wedding cake and birthday cakes for children!). Flavor of cake and filling have always been amazing! You can't go wrong!!!

Ida Wilson

I came in there last week and got the peppermint cheesecake and it was one of BEST things I've ever had. Everyone was so nice and I could definitely see myself going there for future orders.

Dee Mack

AMAZING BAKERY!! Found this gem on Groupon! Good prices for mouth watering sweets!

Jeannine Scope

Mixed reviews on this special occasion carved cake. I provided a picture of what I had in mind for a going away party. It turned out great looking so was excited that the taste would equal or exceed my expectations. The cake itself was moist and flavorful but the buttercream was overkill. Much of the cake was just buttercream shaped into the state vs icing on a truly carved cake. You'll see in the pictures on Yelp the amount of icing covering the whole cake edges and the sparse layer of cake on the bottom with a thick buttercream center. For $200 I expect more professional construction. I've had cake boss cakes and others carved cakes (for half the price) and was hoping this could be a local solution vs driving far. The design got the ooohs and ahhhs, but was a disappointment in quality.

Aww man, words cannot describe how happy I was with my cake and working with Dana and his crew. Thank you so much!

I'm glad to say we used Dana even before he was on the show and we knew he had the potential to do big things!!! His service was always excellent, his talent second to none! We even have him do our prom cakes every year for our proms and they are always the centerpiece and placed for everyone to see as they enter the room. All of the students stand around the cake for pictures. We also do his pie fundraiser and we raise a ton of money around the holiday season for students in our school. They have some of the best profit margins and they simply sell themselves when people see a celebrity chef pie at a great price before the holidays! I'm glad to support this great business!

J Price

Let me tell you this...Chef dana's Mango Cheesecake is my sweet tooth's orgasm. I literally go into his bakery about once a week to purchase one. The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. One time I had my lady coming home from a long trip and Chef Dana created some Beautiful Hello Kitty about Heaven! I won some points from my lady that day....ha ha ha.

I have been getting cakes from DBD since 2013 & not once have I been disappointed. Especially when it came to executing my vision. From start (ordering via phone) to finish (picking up my cake) the staff was very courteous, pleasant & understanding. Not only did I have cakes that looked good, they tasted scrumptious!!!! DBD is definitely my go to bakery for every event!!!

Chanel Hicks

Desserts by Dana is the best! We just had our wedding cake consultation in his gorgeous shop and were truly impressed by their professionalism and delicious samples! Dana went out of his way to design a beautiful and delicious cake. Can't wait to taste it!!


We had a great experience meeting with Dana regarding our cake. He was very professional and his product is world class. I would recommend his cake business to anyone.


Definitely the Cake King of Delaware! Very beautiful bakery and excellent customer service with very good cakes!!

From my first phone call to the cake arriving at my daughter’s Wedding was flawless. The tasting with Dana was informative & fun. Dana asked to see the Wedding dress & from that incorporated the lace into the cake design. We could not be more satisfied, thank you Dana for making Tony & Ashlinn’s St. Patricks Day Wedding Cake so beautiful!

Sonya Blake

I ordered a full winter wonderland themed dessert bar from Dana and what an AWESOME experience! It was for a lunch at my place of employment. The customer service experience from start to finish was fabulous! The desserts and candies were par to none (even the desserts for diabetics too) AND the entire winter wonderland theme was exquisitely breathtaking! The ooows and the ahhhhs from my co-workers along with the plethora of compliments and pictures they took of the bar prior to delving into the sweet delicacies was a delight to see! Thank you Desserts By Dana for your outstanding service and creativity! We will be calling you again!

Monica Adams

I've visited this establishment three times so far and each time I have been satisfied with service and pproduct. I've walked in and ordered from the bakery case. I've eaten the cupcakes and the towers and both have been delicious. The Death by Chocolate tower is aahhh-mazing and so decadent. The red velvet is also very delicious. Prices are fair being as thought this is an upscale/ specialty bakery.

Ronald Felder

We love the Cakes. He did our wedding cake and we wont go to anybody else he does all our families cakes. Dana's cakes are a staple in our family.

marilyn glasgow-olowo

My go to place for the most gorgeous and best tasting cakes.

Everything I've tried by Desserts by Dana has been excellent, As a tea professional I truly enjoy the Scones! My favorite is Blueberry Ginger

Rebecca Lewis

Omg! Everything taste amazing! The price matches what you get.

Keith Freeman Jr.

Reliable, Dependable business that creates great tasting cakes and pastries! I needed a Sesame Street Cake designed for my daughter's birthday party to serve 40 children and adults. The problem was i needed it in two weeks! I contacted "Desserts by Dana" and they took the image i wanted from thought and created a larger than life cake that fed well over the 40 guest. I drove from the Suburbs of Pa. to Delaware to get this cake and it was well worth the trip. My wife and our daughter loved the cake, and our guest took his information down to order for their upcoming events. Please make sure you make Desserts by Dana you "GO TO" place for Birthday, Wedding and special events!!!! - Keith F. Neshaminy Pa.

Norma Gaines-Hanks

I love having this bakery in my neighborhood. It is my "go to" place when I want something sweet and special. I actively encourage people to try my two favorite options--Southern Lemon or Death by Chocolate--as both full desserts or tarts as an introduction to the bakery's offerings. I actually keep an "emergency" Death by Chocolate tart or two in my freezer. Dana is very personable and engaging and works very hard to ensure customer satisfaction.

Sheree Thomas

Service was great, cupcakes were delicious!!

Dara Herbert

I experienced horrible customer service. The staff was very unhelpful and rude.

We order mocha cake .. It was disgusting.. Frosting was so hard n sticky. Tasted like expired cake.. May be they are good for wedding n party orders as they make it fresh.. But not at all satisfied with cake piece . I will never go there again.

Nicole Gerwood

Timely, reasonably priced and delicious desserts. Thanks for making me the number one Mom when I arrived with such tasty treats. I will continue to use this bakery for future events.

Sharlym Torres

Love! Love! Love! Yummy! Yummy! He makes the best cakes, you have to try the cannoli filling

kaycee Church

I was amazed when I walked into my wedding venue Saturday and saw the cake Desserts by Dana created. So beautiful. We got a cookies and cream cake with peacock feathers on stenciled onto the icing. They really put a lot of pride into their work and are so creative. I'm glad I chose Dana to make our cake. It was delicious too. Thank you for making our wedding day special

Just Ask

Ordered a OddBod character cake for my daughter's birthday party. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! I am dieting and was so happy to cheat eating this cake. (Guilty Pleasure)

stephanie harris

Purchased my grandsons 21st Birthday cake from here all I can say is 2 thumbs up & I highly recommend you purchase your next dessert for whatever occasion from here. You will not be disappointed!

Derrick Mason

Best sweet potato cheesecake and fruit tarts I've ever tasted! And don't get me started on the carrot cake...DELICIOUS!!!

Max Altmark

Thank you so much Dana for making the best cake ever! You and your team are excellent at your craft and being professional. Everyone was raving with compliments of how amazing the cake turned out! THANK YOU!

Desserts By Dana is my go to bakery! The delicious taste of the cakes, pies and other desserts are second to none. I refer all my clients, family and friends there are well. When you are looking for something different or a unique taste this is the place to go.

Megan Wise

For starters, our cake was absolutely beautiful, and tasted just as good as it looked. It was everything Dana and I had discussed. He definitely did not disappoint. My husband and I got married 1 year ago, and I waited to write this review until now for a reason. You always hear how eating your cake topper 1 year later is always so disappointing because it's soggy and flavorless. I asked Dana how to prevent it from tasting so awful. We followed his instruction and they did not disappoint. It wasn't too soggy or dry, and it still tasted like a cake and not the cardboard it was wrapped in.

Tim Duperron

Dana and staff is very nice and very accommodating. A+

Raina Sutton

Mike Pipkins

Gabriela Lemus

His cake's taste as amazing as they look HOWEVER! His staff really needs to brush up on their customer service skills. They make my experience very shitty luckily he's very nice and makes up for what his staff lacks.

Ankita Pandey

Best place for cakes in the town . I got my birthday cake from Dana and it was awesome. French macrons and carrot cake is must to be tried. They taste amazing.

brandy perkov

Andrea Pitter

First of all! Holy carrot cake. Dana created my dream wedding cake! It was beyond my expectations. Not only was it beautiful but it also tasted amazing. I cannot put into words how gorgeous this cake was, it was grand and regal, it simply took my breath away. Yes I shared pics because... angles. Four flavors of deliciousness. Anddd it was brought to me to NYC. I can look at it all day.
