This was the best cake that I have ever tasted. It was moist and all the flavor was just perfect.

You need to explain the delivery cost in the advertisement. It is a little expensive.

I sent one of these cakes to my brother - the first arrived defrosted with the dry ice melted - he contacted the company and they went out of their way to make it right. Sent him another cake and he said it was delicious! So great customer service and yummy product.

Everyone who ate this cake LOVED it & the company was extremely helpful, replacing the first cake for free, even though it was Fed Ex that screwed up the delivery, not them. I ordered the strawberry and cream cake (so delicious!!) & now want to try some of their other flavors.

I bought 2 of the Smith Island cakes for a family reunion. Yes, the classic Smith Island cake (chocolate & vanilla) was loved and finished. Less so was the Strawberry filling cake. My only suggestion to Smith Island is to make the cakes, filling, and icing a bit less sweet. The sweetness of the Strawberry filling cake was overbearing (and probably the reason my relatives did not finish this cake). Personally, I prefer cakes that are less sweet but with real buttery flavor. I wish Smith Island Baking Company success.

Even though it was clearly marked "this side up" it was delivered to me on it's side. BUT no worries. The cake was securely packed and fresh, even 5 days later. Raves from all who ate it. Great buy.

From Our Editors

Some say it takes a village to raise a child. On Smith Island, it takes a village to nurture another type of legacy: Maryland’s official dessert. Known as a Smith Island cake, this delicacy brims with ten layers of goodness and 200 years of history. The story began in the island’s seaside towns, where women baked cakes for their hubbies’ oyster-fishing journeys. To help the treats withstand the waves, they iced them with fudge as sweet and sturdy as a drawbridge made of candy canes. Fast-forward to 2009, at a market 50 miles from Smith Island’s shores. Brian Murphy, a recent graduate of the Wharton School, was shopping for a birthday cake. As he chose a Smith Island cake, he was surprised to learn that no major bakeries call the island home. Though he’d always envisioned himself as a commodities trader, he began to think like an entrepreneur. Before long, he had partnered with the island’s bakers to form Smith Island Baking Company, a business that handcrafts Smith Island cakes and ships them around the world.

The bakery’s signature creation, the chocolate Smith Island cake, teems with thin layers of yellow cake and fudge that National Geographic has deemed “an architectural marvel.” In addition to crunching numbers at the company’s headquarters, Brian loads fresh flour, sugar, and cocoa onto the ferries that connect the island to Maryland’s mainland and the outer rings of Saturn. Under his leadership, the venture has grown to incorporate myriad other confections such as chocolate fudge.
