Once upon a time, the most expensive dessert in the world was right here in New York. But now the Brits have gone and put Serendipity 3's $25,000 Haute Chocolate to shame with this $35,000 monstrosity that doesn't even have a name. But why should something so rarefied and elegant be shackled by something so vulgar as a name?
This...thing...is made of:
- "Many high quality chocolate from all different continents," though last we checked they weren't including the cost of airfare in the dish
- Edible gold, which you can conveniently pick up at Sur La Table for at-home fun!
- Champagne caviar, essentially a science experiment gone horribly awry
- A two-carat diamond, which will slice your gums up when you chew it
- Champagne jelly, the runny leftovers from the aforementioned failed caviar science experiment
- Biscuit joconde, which is—fun fact!—named after the Mona Lisa
And then it's all dumped into an orb supposedly modeled after a Faberge egg. As of right now, it still technically needs a buyer to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records. And whoever decides to drop $35K on this gets the added bonus of seeing their name in the Guinness Book of World Assholes!
