The Sweetest Bling

New York is known for setting records of all sorts, and dessert is no exception to this. One of NYC’s famed dessert institutions, Serendipity 3, has unveiled the world’s most expensive dessert, as certified by Guinness. Partnering with a luxury jeweler, Serendipity 3 created the “Frrozen Haute Chocolate,” a blend of 28 cocoas from around the globe. The chocolate sundae is infused with edible 23-carat gold, served in a goblet lined with edible gold, and served with a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which sells for $2,600 a pound. But, surely that’s not all, right? No, it’s not. Taking this from your average fancy-pants sweet treat to total luxury is the 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds served at the base, and the gold spoon decorated white and chocolate colored diamonds, both of which belong to the guest who orders the dessert. So, what’s the price tag for such lusciousness? A mere $25,000.
