I think I finally got Extraordinary Desserts out of my system after several more visits. Not that it doesn’t still taste yummy, but I’ve finally tried almost everything I wanted to try. My previous posts on Extraordinary Desserts can be found here and here and here. Here are the treats I picked up on my last visit:
Here is the Devonshire Pavlova. Filled with a beautiful variety of berries and flowers. The bottom is a light pudding, and the shell is a meringue. It came with a side of syrup which wasn’t really needed because the dessert was sweet enough. It was kind of like a berry fruit tart with a meringue crust. Light and sweet. Yum!
The cookie was disappointing though. it was very crumbly and buttery. Not much flavor and not sweet enough for me. And I didn’t like how it fell apart so easily.
I also got a Toasted Coconut torte, which I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of. It was pretty tasty with lots of toasted coconut flakes. Still not as good as the passionfruit ricotta torte though.
Here is a slice of the Tiramisu. It was delicious. Just the right amount of alcohol, and the mascarpone cheese is light and creamy.
Here are some additional pictures of the bakery:
