The History of the Smith Island Cake

In doing so, we sought to benefit our bakers and employees, Smith Island, Crisfield, and broader Somerset County. Our story has been told and retold by satisfied customers and journalists alike from around the world. It’s a story of the right people, the right vision, and the right community. And, of course, the right cake!

Where is Smith Island?

Smith Island, Maryland, is a 400-year-old fishing village of only 250 residents. Located 10 miles offshore in the Chesapeake Bay, and accessible only by ferry, the map of smith island it was here that the Smith Island Cake was born. Smith Island has always been a waterman’s community. In the 1800’s, when Smith Island men went on the autumn oyster harvest, their wives would send Smith Island Cakes as a special treat to remind them of their families and the community they had left behind. The bakers took pride in making Smith Island Cakes with the thinnest possible layers and they began using fudge instead of buttercream frosting. The watermen loved the presentation, and cakes frosted with fudge lasted much longer than cakes with other frostings.
