The Most Expensive Dessert Ever Made
Yes, I am serious, this is the most expensive dessert ever made. It is believed to have broken all previous records with its list of ingredients including gold, champagne caviar and a diamond. The dessert itself looks like Faberge egg encased in an outer coating made of bitter dark Belgian chocolate, glazed with edible gold leaf and handmade flowers.
Moreover, it was made from a blend of 28 cocoas from all around the world, infused with five grams of edible 23-karat gold and served in a goblet lined with more edible gold. But the cherry on the top was a two-carat diamond, supplied by the award-winning Wave Jewellery.
The eye-watering £22,000 price tag smashed the previous world record set by New York’s Serendipity Restaurant, whose dessert cost £12,000. Each mouthful cost around £800 and the whole dessert took just 15 minutes to devour.
The dessert was made at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Windermere, Cumbria, which is now awaiting confirmation of its place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
