Here we go again, with a new “the world’s most expensive something” to get the blood boiling. This time we present The Golden Phoenix, which is being called, “The World’s Most Expensive Edible Cupcake.” Created by Shafeena Yusuff Ali, CEO of couture bakery Bloomsbury’s in The Dubai Mall — the mixture of milk, eggs, sugar, and gold dust will set you back $27,000. We assume the plate is included.
Now, I could bore you with a list of ingredients. But, when the end result is the gaudy over-the-top mess that you see above, does it really matter? However, for the one-percenters in our audience [I assume there are many], please give Bloomsbury’s 48-hours notice to prepare your cupcake, and please eat it within 15 minutes, or the chocolate will melt. Enjoy.
