I've been to Extraordinary Desserts several times, and you can view my previous posts here, here and here. Last weekend, I had friends visiting, so Boyfriend and I took them to Extraordinary Desserts for dessert. It always is so busy on a weekend night, so we got our desserts to go.
Here are some of the beautiful dessert offerings from that night:
Here are the desserts we ended up taking back with us.
My friends chose a raspberry danish:
Boyfriend chose a slice of Gianduia: Myer's Rum laced chocolate cake layers are married with hazelnut
buttercream, chocolate mousse, and boysenberry preserves. Crushed
pralines cover this most popular dessert.
This dessert had a lot going on. Almost too much. There were so many different elements, and not all of them complimented each other well. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't my favorite. I liked certain elements more than others.
I chose a lavender shortbread cookie:
The cookie had a thick layer of frosting on top. I'm not crazy about frosting, so I didn't like having so much frosting on my cookie. I thought it made it way too sweet. I liked the shortbread cookie underneath, but I scraped off most of the frosting.
Finally, I had to get the pumpkin scone. It fit with my pumpkin themed baking weekend and it was so pretty. I love the gold flecks on the pecans.
The scone was delicious. Soft, most, autumn spices. Yum!
