Priciest Dessert in the World

Brought to you by the Fortress Hotel in Sri Lanka, this pudding concoction is probably the world’s most expensive dessert. It’s called “The Fortress Stilt Fisherman”.

What’s in it?

The dessert is a gold leaf Italian cassata flavored with Irish cream, served with a mango and pomegranate compote and a champagne sabayon enlighten. The dessert is decorated with a chocolate carving of a fisherman clinging to a stilt. (a Sri Lankan motif)

….oh yeah, and a gemstone, an 80 carat aquamarine. (that’s gotta hurt going down)

Cost: about $14,500 . Apparently, one has been sold.

Sources: BBC News, Associated Press.

Update: The Fortress has been overcome by this most expensive dessert from Serendipity 3 in Manhattan, New York. It contains 28 rare cocoas and, get this, 23 carat edible gold dust, all served up in a gold goblet. Oh yeah, you get to keep the diamond encrusted 18 carat gold spoon.
