We met Karen @ the OC Market Place, tried a bunch of her yummy cookies and were immediately impressed. Coincidentally we were in the midst of planning our wedding which was going to be out of town.
We asked her questions re: Freshness, traveling, storage,ect.
We called her 3 months prior to the Big Day and placed our order.
She delivered our 40 dozen cookies frozen, packed in ice packs, to our home the day before we were heading up North.
Everything was just Perfect and everyone loved our "Cookies & Milk" in lieu of a traditional cake.
GG's Desserts is one of my favorite places to visit when I am at the Orange County Market Place. She absolutely knows what she is doing when she bakes those fabulous cookies.
I have to say " You Must Try Them All" especially the Strawberry Cookie, I have never ate a cookie as delightful!
All her cookies are chewy, buttery and oh so soft it will melt in your mouth.
This place is amazing, Agh! My mouth is watery every time I think of this place. Absolutely a must when your in town.
Karen Guardamondo, of GG’s Desserts, provided the cake for my wedding in 2014. There were four tiers, the top tier being the anniversary cake, and there were three kinds: lemon cake with raspberry filling, white chocolate cake with raspberry filling, and chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse filling. I’m not a fan of fondant, so the cake had whipped cream frosting and looked great. Karen was very helpful, reviewing all the details of the cake with me and showing me various options to choose from for the top. I chose pink sugar flowers for the decor that went beautifully down all 4 tiers and she included pink ribbon on the edges. In addition, she set up the cake herself the day of the wedding and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. All three flavors were incredibly delicious and there wasn’t a single piece left over. The guests were very complimentary of the cake and many went back for another slice. On our one year anniversary, my husband and I enjoyed the anniversary cake, which still tasted good. Karen was incredibly professional and kind during our entire experience and I can’t recommend her enough.
I have also had other creations from GG’s Desserts since, including yet more flavors of cakes, pies, cheesecakes, cupcakes, and cookies. You name it and she can do it. I have to say that her strawberry cookie is mine and my husband’s all-time favorite, made with real strawberries!
