Welcome to Rita’s Bakery.

Custom Decorated Petit Fours

Rita’s Bakery has been family-owned and operated in Fountain City since 1993. Over the years we’ve become known for our famous thumbprint cookies, as well as our old-fashioned, mouth-watering cakes, pies, petit fours, cookies, brownies, pastries, breads, and cheesecakes.

Do you need a custom dessert for a party, shower, or other special event? Just let us know the colors or theme of your party and we can color our yummy buttercream icing to match.

Do you want a cake for someone with hobbies or special interests? Tell us what you you’d like and we can draw it on a cake, cookie, or petit four. We frost our cakes in classic buttercream (white or chocolate) or cream cheese icing. We also make caramel, coconut, strawberry, or whipped icing. Cake inscriptions and festive embellishments are free. We charge for decorating on a per-cake basis depending on the design you choose. Custom decorating usually starts at $10.

Do you have a meeting or group event? Let us put together a cookie/brownie bite tray or an assorted pastry tray.

Because we’re a small, family business we do our best to keep up with demand during peak holidays. Because our customer-base has grown so large over the years, be sure to call in and place your order as early as possible to ensure availability.

Petit Fours

Petit Fours — Nothing perks up a party like petit fours, and they’re a lot easier to serve than cake or cupcakes! We split a 2"x2" square of our cream cheese pound cake with lemon, raspberry or vanilla filling. We need at least a 3-day notice and direction about how you want them decorated (rosebuds, baby booties, etc.) They’re $3.00 each for simple decorations, and we have a dozen minimum for orders during the week.

Iced Sugar Cookies — Iced and hand-decorated with our yummy buttercream, our cookies are a big hit for birthdays and holidays. We can create some especially for you (starting at $2.75) or you’re welcome to come in check out the seasonal cookies we have on hand in our case ($2.50). We do our best to keep up with demand during peak holidays, but be sure to call in and place your order as early as possible to ensure availability.

Iced Gingerbread — Want your basketball team in icing? How about mummies for Halloween or leprechauns for St. Patty’s Day? Our gingerbreads are nearly 6” tall; custom orders start at $3.00 and the seasonal ones in the case are $2.75. We do our best to keep up with demand during peak holidays, but be sure to call in and place your order as early as possible to ensure availability.

Pies — How about a pie? We just need a few day’s notice to make one especially for you. Our pie flavors include: double-crust apple, chocolate chess, chocolate ice box, chocolate mousse, French coconut, fudge turtle torte (gluten-free), German chocolate, key lime mousse, lemon ice box, peanut butter, pecan, and pumpkin.

Cookies — Our cookies are $.60 each or a dozen for $7. Our choices include chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, snickerdoodle, or peanut butter. The thumbprint cookies are by far our most popular and can be ordered in the colors of your choice (with advance notice).

Brownies — We have 4 types: chocolate iced, rocky road, cream cheese, and congo bars (blonde brownies with chocolate chips, caramel, & pecans). They are $2.50 each. We can quarter them to make brownie bites for $2.75 each.

Pastries — We have a wide selection including cinnamon rolls, scones, strawberry-cream cheese croissants, muffins, fruit-filled puff pastries, & sticky buns. Give us a little notice and we can prepare a platter for your breakfast meeting.
