At Cakes by Retta we're committed to creating custom wedding and specialty cakes, along with cookies and cupcakes. We strive to make each order unique to your request so that you may truly have a treat that is one of a kind! You can count on us to bring you the very best in confections. If it's a custom creation you need, we'll work closely with you in the planning process to come up with a design that combines quality and creativity. 

I would like to dedicate my business and this site to my mother, Bernice Hales. She used to call me the baker in the family. We sadly lost my mother to a long battle with Alzheimer's, a disease that affects too many. At Cakes by Retta, we are very passionate about supporting Alzheimer's research and spreading awareness. Please see our Alzheimer's Battle of the Bakers section of this site, and consider donating to Alzheimer's research. 

Cakes by Retta is a member of Icing Smiles, Inc.  "Icing Smiles is a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child. We understand that the simple things, like a birthday cake, are luxuries to a family battling illness. Our goal is to create a custom cake for the ill child, or their sibling, that provides a temporary escape from worry and creates a positive memory during a difficult time.  Memories have magical powers. Long after the cake is gone, the memories linger – memories of the kindness of a stranger, of the art of the design, of the sweet smells of a special treat, of the smiles and laughs, of a normal childhood experience so often stolen from these children. These memories are why we say, “It is so much more than a cake.”  We are not a bakery, as a matter of fact, Icing Smiles doesn’t even have an oven! We rely on a generous team of volunteers spread throughout the U.S. to fulfill our mission.  We are Baking a Difference®."
