Top 8 Most Expensive Deserts
Are you ready to give extra money for a delicious desert ? Would you care if the price of the sweet you want to taste is actually as high as your monthly salary? Let’s get real now – paying a few hundred/thousands of dollars for a desert can only be a privilege for filthy rich people. But, it doesn’t mean that you have to stop reading this article and see what cakes and cookies are holding the top positions on the list of the ultra expensive sweet delights.
What’s so special about this bagel? If you take a better look you will see sparkly golden (yes, truly golden) pieces sprinkled all over it, that’s why this bagel is sold for a $1,000 a piece. The bagel is enriched (besides the gold of course) with cream cheese and white truffles, combined with jelly Goji berries.
#2. Golden Opulence Sundae
The ice cream has the finest vanilla flavor, mixed with Madagascar vanilla and rare chocolate from Venezuela. This dreamy combination is wrapped in 23 carats gold leaf-shaped cup and served to you with an 18 carats golden fork. The sundae is decorated with the most expensive chocolate in the world, candied fruit, gilded almonds, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries. You will have to pay 1000 dollars to enjoy this cold and golden desert.
#3. Haute Couture Macaroons
Macaroons aren’t a rare desert, but for sure are pretty expensive. Of course you can find cheaper varieties of the recipe, but the original cookies will cost you over 7000 dollars. Haute Couture Macaroons uses great variety of ingredients (of course the French pastry chef, Pierre Herme will never tell the secret) which give the cookies the unique flavor, smell and shape. For 7 414 dollars you can get many different flavors such as Arabesque (a Pistachio Macaroon with an apricot filling), Mogador (Macaroon filled with a Passion Fruit ganache and milk chocolate) or Rose (Pink Macaroon with rose petal ganache).
#4. Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence
You can get this desert in The Wine3 restaurant in the Fortress luxury hotel in Sri Lanka. But, if you thought that the previous three deserts very kind of expensive, this one is over the edge, brutally expensive. This dessert is an Italian cassata made with a Champagne base, Irish cream, edible gold, pomegranate and mango. Maybe it doesn’t sound like it is something special, but the whole attraction comes from the hand-made chocolate stilt fishing scene with included an eighty carat aquamarine stone. Last year this desert took the ninth spot in the world’s list of most expensive dessert. Its price is 14 500 dollars.
This is an Italian tube pastry dessert is an easy one and can be made at home, but the cannoli recipe made by Chef Carey Lennaccaro of Sprinkled with Sugar is really special. Made with dark chocolate and filled with ricotta cheese, chocolate and candied lemon. Of course everything is wrapped with edible gold, but that doesn’t make this desert worth 26 000 dollars; it’s the diamond necklace that comes with it, previously owned by the jeweler Tom Tivol.
#6. Chocolate pudding
In 2011 this desert was holding the fist spot on the list of most expensive deserts with total worth of 34 000 dollars. It is made of dark chocolate layered with Biscuit Jaconde and Champagne Jelly plus edible gold on top. The decoration consists two carat white diamonds, and if you plan to eat this chocolate pudding you will have to place your order at least two weeks earlier.
#7. Platinum cake
Making of this 130 000 dollars cake had to purposes: to promote platinum jewelry and to honor beautiful women, especially a Japanese actress named Rinko Ki Kuchi. The cake is covered with simple white frosting but the decoration of it offers sparkly necklaces, pendants, earrings and edible platinum flakes. The cake, however, was never sold because of the insanely high price.
#8. Strawberries Arnaud
This desert is made of strawberries and cream, but it costs 1.4 million dollars. The desert is made of soaking strawberries in a 25 000 dollars wine and the whipped cream has mint in it. But still, this can’t even nearly reach such high price. The million dollar price tag comes with the 4.7 carat purple pink, 18 carats rose gold and 79 carats white diamond ring. If you can afford this desert (or shall we say ring with some strawberries) you will be served port from a 25 000 dollars Charles X crystal cave set.
