The most expensive cake in the world
Here, at MyTravelStudio, we love chocolate and this is the reason why we came up with this idea of writing about five of the most expensive cake in the world. It kind of looks insane to me that a chocolate cake could cost around millions but it is a fact and a reason to talk about it.
So, let’s start with the cheapest one made for a diamond merchant, on his name Carl Weininger. Well, the cake’s signature belongs to Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel. The cake was like a Faberge egg, which we all know it is already expensive! The goody was filled with: peach and whiskey and layered with champagne jelly and a light biscuit. On the top of it: 2-carat diamond!!! Price tag? $35.000.
And the most expensive cake list continues
We are going back in 1937 now to the exact moment when Duke and Duchesse of Windsor got married. Some slices from their cake were not eaten, I don’t think because it wasn’t that good! A few years later, on 1998 more precisely, they sold a piece of that cake on action. Price tag? $30.000!
Third position on most expensive cake is occupied by a five million dollars chocolate cake in the shape of Africa plated with 2000 diamonds. All of it made by a jeweler from Tokyo who wanted to show his love for the beautiful continent.
One very extravagant cake is the one made in honor of Devorah Rose, a New York City socialite. The cake was not only garnished with diamonds but also rubies and emeralds. How much do you think? Well, no less than $30 million.
We kept the best for last. We talk about a Pirate’s Fantasy. It’s the name of the cake designed and made by the chef Dimuthu Kumarasinghe. The cake had 10 layers and every one was a different flavor including zucchini, pumpkin or coconut meringue. The shape was obvious a pirate’s ship with all included so now comes the part when you are asking me about diamonds and stuff? Well, they put all in place and some rare sapphires. Total: 35 million!
We keep the fingers crossed and hope for you to get a chance to buy or at least taste one of the most expensive cake in the world. Or even have it for your wedding of birthday.
