There’s a whole bunch of extravagant ingredients – including gold – in this confection.
Some husbands give their wives flowers and jewellery for their birthday. Others commission local bakers to come up with the most extravagant cupcake possible and are willing to part with US$900 (RM2,840) for it.
That’s what happened in Toronto recently, when Lisa Sanguedolce of Le Dolci bakery was approached by a man to create an over-the-top dessert to celebrate his wife’s 40th birthday.
After a few days of brainstorming, the pastry team came up with a concoction made with some of the most expensive ingredients in the world, including Krug Collection Brut champagne, 24-karat gold leaves, and a limited edition Courvoisier.
“We usually get custom-sculpted cake requests from our wealthy clientele, like a cake in the shape of a grand piano, Corvette or the birthday boy’s Porsche but this is the first time we had a customer request to make an extravagant cupcake for his wife’s 40th birthday,” wrote Sanguedolce in an e-mail to Relaxnews.
If you also love your wife (or husband) some US$900-worth of chocolate and vanilla, Le Dolci will make the cupcake via special order.
Here’s the full list of ingredients:
