Canada's most expensive cupcake is topped with gold, diamond sprinkles
Canada’s Toronto residents and visitors can now have their cupcake and eat it too, as far as they are willing to fork out the far from negligible sum of $900 per unit.
Created by Le Dolci bakery, the extravagant cupcake is not the world's most expensive — that title is hold by Dubai-made "Golden Phoenix" ($1,200) —, but it certainly include top-notch ingredients, such as sea salt from Carmargue in France, Tahitian vanilla beans and Valhrona Cocoa powder.
Most importantly, the baked treat is topped with diamond-like sprinkles, a 24-karat gold leaf, an edible gold-painted branch and confectionary bubbles made with a "molecular gastronomy" technique.
According to NBC News, Le Dolci has received a flurry of inquiries and interest about the made-to-order cupcake, which has helped sales of the bakery's everyday $2.75 cupcakes. But so far, there have been no other orders for the $900 version.
