6. Frozen Haute Chocolate at Serendipity 3, New York, $25,000
Taking 28 of the most expensive cocoas and adding in five grams of edible 23-carat gold as well as a goblet lined with gold will make this sundae a real treat. More gold is added into the whipped cream on top and there is also a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier.

5. Cannoli at Jasper Restaurant, $26,000
Jasper Mirable, the owner of the Jasper Restaurant in Kansas City, teamed up with Tivol Jewellers to create this incredible treat in an attempt to make the most expensive cannoli ever. The recipe brings the Italian delicacy to a whole new level, with whipped ricotta, candied lemon, nuts, sweet cream, lemon peel and chocolate as well as a diamond necklace and a gold leaf covering the whole pack.
4. Twins Ice Cream Sundae from Mt. Kilimanjaro, $60,000
This dessert is actually way more than just an ice cream, offering you a unique experience. You pay for a first class plane ticket to Tanzania, a couple of days at a five star hotel, a guided tour to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro and best of all, the founder of the company will accompany you to make the sundae with ice taken from the mountain. Due to the weather changes it is expected that all ice from the summit will melt in ten years or so – that’s why this tasty dessert is also an attempt to raise awareness about the environment as well. You also get a shirt!
3. Strawberries Arnaud, $1.4 million
Found in the French Quarter of New Orleans, this dessert is obviously a bit more than just the regular strawberries. They were soaked in exotic wine and come with whipped cream and mint to add flavor, as well as a 4.7 carat pink diamond ring that belonged to Sir Ernest Cassel, an English royal finance advisor. The strawberries come in a Charlex X crystal cave set and will also you get a $24,850 wine set, served by white-gloved waiters, and a live jazz concert to help stir your appetite. You can’t eat the diamond ring though
2. Diamond Fruitcake, $1.65 million
This two layer hexagonal cake was created back in 2005 by Jeong Hong-yong, a renowned chef from Tokyo, and it features 223 small diamonds. It took six months to create the masterpiece and the baking alone took one month! It was exhibited at the Takashimaya Department Store with the title ‘Diamonds: Nature’s Miracle’ until it was put for sale for Christmas. The recipe was kept secret to raise the mystery but this cake was apparently completely edible, except for the diamonds which you can easily remove and keep as a reminder of the feast
1. Diamond Chocolate Cake, $5 million
The most expensive dessert in the world also sizzles with diamonds, and it’s quite difficult to determine whether it is actually a tasty treat or a beautiful piece of jewelry. This chocolate diamond cake was created by a jeweler from Tokyo, Japan and it has no less than 2,000 diamonds on it with the chocolate being molded in the shape of Africa. According to the author, he wanted to express his love for the continent and diamonds are definitely the best way to do that.
Enjoy your Day :)
