We've always loved going to Extraordinary Desserts for their gorgeous and decadent cakes so when it came time to choosing a wedding cake, we headed straight to them. Now their wedding cake catalog showcases some beautiful, but pricey selections. We were on a tight budget and had a relatively small wedding of about 100 guests. After shopping around, we found that getting a 2-tiered cake from Extraordinary was close to the same price of other bakeries, except with Extraordinary we'd be getting great quality. Karen handled the order, and though she's not exactly the friendliest person, she gets things done. Our cake was beautiful, delicious, and we had plenty leftover for guests to take home. Instead of freezing cake for us to share on our first anniversary, we're planning on going to Extraordinary Desserts to grab a fresh slice to celebrate!

We got a very simple cake from Extraordinary Desserts for our wedding and everyone loved it. The fruit that they put on top was really fresh and I really liked the way they decorated it.

Our wedding cake turned out beautiful and delicious. I love the fresh flower decorations! They were awesome to work with and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend them for a wedding or any other event.

This was such a fun place for some of our first dates (and also our dates 5 years later). Our favorite dessert after trying so many wonderful ones was the passionfruit ricotta cake, which we ended up choosing as our wedding cake. It turned out fabulous, and Karen was wonderful in helping us with the cake size, option, amount and floral design. Initially, we had thought the price might be out of our budget, but it turned out to be very reasonable. We had so many compliments from guests about our "extraordinary" wedding cake, and the best part is that we can now go to Extraordinary Desserts anytime we want to taste our wedding cake again!

My husband and I really value fresh and organic food and decided to splurge on the wedding cake and get exactly what we wanted - but at the end of the day it actually ended up being a great value and not a budget breaker at all, plus we were 100% happy with our choice and felt we received a 5 star cake for a 3 star cost.

We have a medieval wedding and decided to get several of their 10" Ivoire Royal cakes. It was the perfect choice - everyone said it was the best wedding cake they've had, the display was BEAUTIFUL and when we told people we were having Extraordinary Desserts for the cake most people's knee's buckled.

Some cons on the logistics: They didn't deliver to our location in Vista. Getting them there was a big problem considering they were very fragile and don't hold up well without refrigeration (which our venue had NONE), but ultimately we threw them in coolers ourselves and thankfully it worked out.

About the owner: I want to give the owner, Karen Krasne, all the credit for 5 stars. She called me about 2 or 3 days before the wedding a little distressed that somehow my order had not come across her radar sooner - she normally handles all weddings personally and I should have been sent directly to her when I placed the order. Her staff had apparently made suggestions she did not approve of - my cakes were set to be frozen which she said drastically reduces the quality of the cake once they thawed out, the pick up time was wrong and also she said I had too many cakes and they were over decorated and knocked $100 dollars off the cakes instantly by removing some decoration and a whole cake (and we STILL had 2 whole cakes left - partly my fault because I overestimated the guest count). Her suggestions and correction to our order I believe were spot on.

Our cake cutting pictures are absolutely priceless - they turned so magnificent. Also - my husband and I both had several pieces....it was beautiful and delicious! Truly an Extraordinary cake!

Gosh, where to begin? I've been going to this bakery since I was a little girl and I had their bakery picked out for my wedding before my husband and I had decided on anything else! It truly is the best cake you'll ever taste.

We decided on the Dulce de Leche chocolate cake with chocolate shaving decorations and flowers. It looked absolutely luscious and decadent, plus it tasted as good as it looked. Everyone that we invited tried the cake and they all agreed it was the best chocolate cake they'd ever had.

I worked with both the general manager and the bakery owner while placing my order. They typically book orders about 3 months before your wedding date so you have a more accurate guest count and decoration style in mind (I tried to book 9 months out and had to call back closer to my wedding date). Both ladies were very helpful and a pleasure to work with. I am seriously in awe over my experience with Extraordinary Desserts.

I highly recommend this bakery for your wedding and for any celebration that requires cake! The bakery locations are excellent for date nights too!

Karen isn't the nicest, you can even say she is rude but if you can look pass that the desserts are amazing! I love their dessert and have been a loyal client for many years but if you are looking to get pampered as a bride this is not for you. You pay for your cake tasting which you do in your own. The price is not bad. So if your like me and don't care how the service is as long as the product is good, then, go with ED. If not, French gourmet will be better for you! Great service and amazing desserts, I don't regret my decision but if I were to do it again I would go with french gourmet. Also when I received my thank you note for my business the note said a name completely off and my last name was butchered . When you spends quite a bit of your not so small budget on a vendor, the least they can do is know your name ( especially when it's 3 letters and very easy).

This was clearly the best wedding cake we or any of our guests had ever had. It was beautiful too. Karen (the owner) recommended that instead of a 'standard' wedding cake that we tier two of her standard cakes. Instead of smooth fondant, we had shaved white chocolate and flowers on the outside. It was gorgeous, elegant, incredibly delicious, and about half the price of what a traditional wedding cake would have cost us. For the size of our ceremony (only about 40 people) it was perfect. My only complaint with this vendor is that they are so popular that communications with them can get logjammed. They need to set up more options to approve contracts and accept payments online to move things along. Karen wanted to confirm everything with us personally on the phone, but given that we were in Illinois and they are in California, that became cumbersome (time zone differences etc.). So while I appreciate the personal touch, I think they should consider some online options at least after the initial order is finalized.
