This decadent cake from Smith Island has been known as “Frosting with the Cake”, containing between 6 -12 pencil-thin yellow cake layers with rich chocolate fudge icing in between!! Imagine nine of the most delicate layers of spongy yellow cake separated by the thinnest layers of an old fashioned cooked chocolate icing that sets like fudge.

No one is quite sure who developed the concept of the “Smith Island Cake”. Some people believe it can be traced to an English torte, brought by Welsh settlers who came to the Smith Island in the late 1600’s. Many residents of Smith Island say, “It has always been here”. The recipe for the Smith Island Cake was first published in 1981 in a cookbook called Mrs. Kitching’s Smith Island Cookbook. Women of Smith Island started to stack layers as a form of competition, and it eventually grew to as many as a dozen layers.

Effective October 1, 2008, the Smith Island Cake and its unique island received the recognition that it deserved. The Maryland State Legislation established the Smith Island Cake as the Official State Dessert of Maryland.
