Extraordinary Desserts

I can't believe I forgot to share these drool worthy photos with you all! My friends and I went to Extraordinary Desserts in San Diego a few weeks ago for dessert. You have to understand something....I think most people order real food and may share a piece of cake but when we go we each order two desserts. The amount of dessert on our table probably makes us a spectacle, but that is okay, last time our hostess said they don't judge. ;)

Here is the link to Extraordinary Desserts website:

Let's get started...

This is the Little Italy location in San Diego.

Instantly greeted by dessert cases....

....and instantly overwhlemed. Don't worry, you can tell everyone else around you is equally overwhelmed by what to choose.


Full cakes available for purchase.

We got our table number and my friends and I wrote down our desserts. Each time we have gone to Extraordinary Desserts we pick different desserts so we can share and taste each delectable one.

They do offer real food and from what I have heard it is great. I never got around to the real food because I get hyper-focused on the desserts.

Dulce de Leche: A crunchy milk chocolate confection is hidden between layers of chocolate cake and creamy chocolate mousse. Homemade dulce de leche finishes this over the top chocolate torte.

Blood Orange Ricotta Torte: Sweet and tangy. This ricotta torte is soaked with fresh blood orange juice and layered with blood orange whipped cream, juicy raspberries and cranberries.

A close up of the tasty topping including edible gold on the strawberry.

Milk Chocolate Meringue

Sorry, I can't remember what this is, but it tasted like a gooey s'more.

Chocolate Shortbread

Chocolate Chip Oat Cookie

Shangri-La: Heavenly. White chocolate mousse, guava mousse, fresh strawberries and whipped cream are layered between vanilla cakes moistened with kirsch.

This is what the Shangri-La looks like as a whole cake.

Au-Chocolate: Rich and creamy Valrhona dark chocolate mousse tops a thick layer of chocolate cake soaked in cocoa and covered in dark chocolate ganache.

Me and my two desserts, the Blood Orange Ricotta & Dulce de Leche.

A table full of desserts.

My leftovers I enjoyed the next day at home.
