Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in Windermere, Cumbria has recently served the world’s most expensive dessert to a British diamond merchant, Carl Weininger.
The 3 inch by 3 inch chocolate flavored cake, made to appear like a Frabrege egg, was infused with peach, orange and whiskey and layered with champagne jelly and a light biscuit joconde. The edible parts were finished with dark chocolate and of course no record breaking dessert is complete without gold leaf.
To fully bring the dessert to the level of an ostentatious display, the dessert is topped with a two-carat diamond.
The dessert cost a mere £22,000, or around $34,000 USD.
Marc Guibert, the head chef, prepares the extravagant dessert.
