The Taste of LUXURY – Sweets That Will BLOW YOUR MIND
How far are you willing to go in order to indulge yourself? After a delicious meal, dessert is a must, but these mouth-watering sweets are jaw-droppingly expensive. Here we have the list of the priciest desserts in the world that will tickle your imagination.
The Sultan’s Golden Cake
The Sultan’s Golden Cake is a special cake with a price tag of about $1,000 served at the Ciragan Palace in Istanbul. This sweet pleasure is topped with caramelized black truffles and coated in 24-karat gold leaf. The dessert contains figs, quince, apricot, and pears that were soaked in Jamaican rum for two years. The cake takes 72 hours to be made, so if you want to treat yourself, be sure to announce your arrival beforehand!
Macarons Haute Couture
About $7,414 is how much you would have to pay for one of the most popular desserts in the world if you decide to visit a French pastry chef, Pierre Herme. He made up a new, and definitely more expensive kind of macarons. Now, you might think that macaroons are nothing more than two meringue puffs, held together with buttercream but you would be wrong. Herme says that he offers a large variety of ingredients, which is why the cost of these lovely desserts has gone up. A customer is able to choose ingredients such as fleur de sel, red wine, balsamic vinegar, peanut butter, and anything else you can think of putting between these meringue puffs.
Faberge Egg Cake
For a silly price of about $35.000, you can enjoy eating your own Faberge egg. A diamond mogul, Carl Weininger treated himself to this little pleasure when he broke up with his girlfriend. To be honest, we can understand why this cheered him up. The cake has several layers, including champagne jelly, biscuit jocund, and dark chocolate. It is also adorned with edible gold leaves and the small surprise that is in the center of the egg. When you open it, you can see it’s a two-carat diamond that is on top of a chocolate flower on the top of the cake.
The Absurdity Sundae
Ice cream Sundae is not the most attractive dessert, right? Well, it is if you decide to try this particular one. The Three Twins Ice Cream’s founder will accompany you to the peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, where he will personally make the world renowned Absurdity Sundae while you enjoy the magnificent view. Now that you know the details, we can tell you that this sweet pleasure comes with a price tag of around $60.000 and includes a first class ticket to Tanzania, a stay at a five-star hotel, a climb with a tour guide, and a T-shirt as a souvenir.
This dessert, that costs around $1.4 million, is made of strawberries marinated in the best pot and served with mint and cream. So what is so special about this dish? Arnaud is one of New Orleans’ most luxurious dining establishments, and they decided to make this dish special, by topping it with a 4.7 karat pink diamond ring and serving it from a Charles X cave set worth around $25.000.
This cake certainly lives up to its name. Each of 10 layers of this $35million cake, had a different flavor, including cinnamon, zucchini, pumpkin, coconut meringue, and pistachio. This cake was designed and made by chef Dimuthu Kumarasinghe for Aitken Spence Hotels and Heritance Hotels & Resorts. And here comes the fantasy part – the cake was made to look like a pirate’s ship, and decorated with rare sapphires and other gems.
Debbie Wingham’s Catwalk Cake
The famous designer was commissioned to create a $75 million cake, by one of her clients living in the United Arab Emirates, for his daughters joint birthday and engagement party. This cake weighs 450kg, it has over 120kg of fondant and 60kg of modeling chocolate. It also has 4000 real diamonds on it, and it takes 1100 hours to be made. The six-foot long creation, in the style of a catwalk, features garments, which resemble MsWingham’s couture clothing – and is entirely edible.
Even though we are not sure just how tasty diamonds can be, eating couture sounds delicious! So, in the end, the question is, how far are you willing to go to satisfy your palate?
