Waiting to take its place in the Guinness Book of World Records, the new most expensive dessert in the world was recently sold by Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere, England for a staggering £22,000 (approx. $34,400).
Made by chef Marc Guilbert, the lavish dessert is shaped like a precious Faberge egg, and it contains four different types of fine Belgian chocolate. Flavors of orange, peach and whiskey complete the unique taste, and for a touch of opulence, the creator of the luxury dessert wrapped it in edible gold and added a 2-carat diamond to the recipe. It must be served with strawberry caviar and champagne.
The buyer was 60-year-old Carl Weininger from Rugby, UK, who wanted the dessert for his birthday. The beautiful edible egg was also exhibited at a charity Aviators Ball, and Weininger declared himself very happy with the fact that his purchase “helped to promote the charity Aerobility which gives disabled adults like me and children the opportunity to take to the skies and fly.”
