Top 3 amazing sweets
3 The Absurdity Sundae
The reason why this sundae costs so much is its promoters will fly you to Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in first class style and provide you five-star accommodation. At the mountain, the chef will create the ice cream utilizing glacial ice obtained from the summit. If you have an extra $25k, you can take along a friend with you.
The sundae itself consists of a banana split that costs just $3,333.33 to make. It is made with bananas and syrups concocted from rare wines. They provide you a special spoon made in the 1850s to eat this tasty dish. Give the promoter a day’s notice and they will present the services of a cellist who will play soothing music as you taste this delectable fare.
2 Diamond Fruitcake
You probably spend a few bucks every Christmas to buy and taste a fruitcake as this dessert is popular during the holiday season. However, the Takashimaya Department Store in Tokyo took grandeur to a whole new level by ordering a special cake costing $1.72 million to be made for display at their premises for promotional purposes.
The reason for the grand price is the 223 diamonds studded into the cake that make up a total weight of 170 carats. This cake is meant for display and not for consumption so no one needs to worry about biting into one of the diamonds. The creators of this masterpiece took six months for design and one whole month to make it. Fancy a cake that costs as much as a big mansion?
1 Strawberries Arnaud
The winner of the grand prize is a plate of strawberries served at Arnaud’s Restaurant in New Orleans. Their standard strawberry dessert costs about $9 but they created this special dish on the occasion of Valentine’s Day in 2016 to regale their patrons.
Apart from regular strawberries, the dessert includes additional ingredients that account for the heavy price. These include 24-carat gold flake toppings, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, and a variety of expensive champagnes and liquors that provide a zing to the dish. Another main reason for the $9.85 million price is an exquisite box that hosts a 10.06-carat royal blue diamond engagement ring created by MS Rau Antiques that is placed at the base of the dining plate.
