I've had Smith Island cakes preciously, so was delighted to take advantage of the Groupon. I LOVE these cakes!! Moist cake, wonderful flavors, lots of layers of goodness. Not only are the cakes "to die for", the customer service is outstanding. I had to contact their customer service about a minor glitch. I was pleasantly surprised to hear within minutes from the CEO. He made sure to handle my glitch very quickly, efficiently and kindly. He even emailed me back to make sure all was taken care of to my satisfaction. Cake was as outstanding as always. It arrived the next day and was in perfect condition. OUTSTANDING!

The cake was good but very small. It feeds more like 4 people. The ice cream was very average. I've had grocery store ice cream that tasted better. My local ice cream parlors have much better tasting ice cream. Overall, I think it's very much over priced for what you get. It should also be noted that you cannot use the Groupon and cake of the month together. The cake of the month requires a coupon code.

Glad I had a groupon for this. The cake is good, but still pricey to me. (I like more icing too) It came very fast but you pay for it.

I am being a little preemptive. The ordering was easy -- now let's see about delivery. Twice in the past (once at Christmas, most recently at Thanksgiving) the cake I ordered did not arrive in time for the actual holiday. I must add that the Company was most apologetic, and sent a free cake later. I love your cakes, though, and keep ordering. I hope that this one arrives as scheduled. Then you truly earn five stars!

From Our Editors

Maryland’s official state dessert is the Smith Island Cake. This delicacy brims with homemade layers of goodness and 200 years of tradition. In the 1800's, watermen's families 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 for his mother. He chose a Smith Island Cake, and the rest is history. He’d always envisioned himself as a commodities trader, he began to think like an entrepreneur. Before long, he founded the 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.” Under his leadership, the venture has grown to incorporate myriad other confections such as chocolate fudge the best ice cream on the planet.
