Finally, a $28,000 gold cupcake that is edible

It's arrived, the world's most expensive edible cupcake made out of gold.

The US$28,000 confection, called the Golden Phoenix, was made by Bloomsbury's baker Shafeena Yusuff Ali. Bloomsbury's is located in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

When the baker announced she was going to make the cupcake on Twitter, there was a backlash.

"This has to be one of the most ridiculous news- World’s most expensive cupcake goes on sale in Dubai," wrote Alita D'souza.

Shafeena Yusuff Ali replied:

"Sorry you feel that way! I was making an honest effort to create something amazing!"

Sale proceeds will go to charity.
