Xtra Special Cakes is a specialty cake shop. We specialize in one of a kind cakes designed especially for our customers. Our customers can get a cake that is very simple or elaborately detailed in all shapes and sizes. We have several albums of cake pictures to look through for ideas and inspiration. In our show room there are a large variety of display cakes of many different sizes and designs from the crooked crazy fun cakes to beautiful elegant cakes.

We offer a wide variety of cake flavors and fillings that are pleasing to the palette. Taste is important to us as well as design.
Our shop is located on the west side of downtown Mount Vernon across the Skagit River on the way to the tulip fields. You can come in and sit awhile and enjoy an espresso, a cookie, carrot cake or perhaps a brownie while you browse through our design books.

We are family owned and operated and get a great amount of joy out of creating a cake that will make you laugh or say WOW! Read less

The cake tasted fine, but, the delivery was late and they used the wrong color of green on my cake. Pretty big no-no.

Most delicious cake I have ever tasted! Not an exaggeration, at all. I have an allergy to strawberries so they made us their triple berry special, even for the tasting. They called to confirm our design and flavor choices, multiple times, to make sure we were definitely sure in the end. We also had their red velvet as one of the layers, which was also amazing! Great people and fantastic cake!

What an amazing experience it was to work Roxanne and everyone at Xtra Special Cakes. We got so many compliments on how delicious and beautiful our cake was. They were so accommodating every time I changed my mind about things. When we order cakes we only order from them!!

Even our good friend who is a pastry chef thought this cake was wonderful! Our cake was moist and flavorful, and beautifully decorated in exactly the way we had requested. Roxann met with us for a tasting early in our planning process, and everything was so good that it was hard to choose! There were a ton of cake flavors, and then the filling choices and icing styles added even more decisions for us. We were able to have four different flavor combinations in our four-layer cake. The designs that Xtra Special Cakes creates are amazing, ranging from gorgeously ornate, traditional cakes to our choice, the simpler and quirky style. Roxann was able to advise us during the tasting on everything from icing style (fondant is best for an outdoor wedding in the summer) to the number of people our cake would serve. Everything was delivered on time and without any problems, and since we had some guests who are gluten-intolerant, Roxann added several complimentary gluten-free cupcakes to our order so that everyone at the party would be able to have cake.

Cake tasted good at cake testing, but during the wedding it had cooled down and tasted not as moist. Design wasn't what I wanted even though we drew out the design together at our meeting. I asked for red velvet cake with chocolate fudge and I got chocolate cake with raspberry filling. I feel for the quality and what I received was overpriced. Albertsons cakes are half the price and looked nicer.

WOW my cake was amazing! The triple berry cake was the most moist and flavorful cake I have EVER tasted. These guys do some beautiful cakes too, let me tell you. I didnt want the traditional wedding cake, we wanted one to match our forest theme. We asked them to make us a tree stump with our initials carved in it and butterflys, dragonflys, bees etc. They did such an awesome job, the detail was out of this world. The guests at our wedding said it was the coolest cake they had ever seen. Price wise, they were very reasonable and I will definately be ordering a cake from them again.......frequently!

Roxann and the team at Xtra Special Cakes are X-tradoridinary! :)

I met Roxann at the Tulalip Bridal Show and fell in love with her because she had almond cake samples at the show. I set up an appointment and she worked with me to pick other flavors and fillings that would compliment them for sampling.

I took two of my friends to the tasting and we were all impressed. All of the cakes were delicious - including the almond, which is what I had set my heart on... until I tasted the spice cake! After picking the flavors (we settled on almond with chocolate mousse filling and spice with custard filling), Roxann helped me design the cake. I had nothing in mind except the pictures she had shown us, but she was very creative and helpful in coming up with ideas. After she designed the cake I changed my mind! She very patiently drew up a new design which was perfect.

Fast forward to the wedding.. I had nothing to worry about! They delivered my cake (for free) and it was even more beautiful than I could have thought possible! We received countless compliments on the style of the cake and ESPECIALLY the taste. Everyone wanted seconds!

I would definitely recommend x-Tra Special Cakes. One thing is to expect to pay a little more for the quality of the cake. I had to swallow the price, but it was totally worth it!
