Classic Cakes History


Classic Cakes is owned and operated by Dana Evans. Dana began making the traditional cakes from the time she was a young girl growing up on Smith Island. Smith Island Cakes are made with multiple thin layers of cake with icing between each layer. Smith Island is the only off shore island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.


Dana and her family moved from Smith Island to Salisbury where she opened up Classic Cakes in 2003. Now side by side with her daughter, Stephanie, who manages daily operations. The mother-daughter team have turned their passion into a business to share the decadent sweets with others. They make over 20 flavors of the Smith Island Cakes.
