World’s most expensive desserts

    Save some room for dessert; we’re dishing up the world’s most expensive sweet creations. From cakes laden with platinum to chocolate infused with edible gold, these sweet treats are rich in more ways than one.

    1.Strawberry Arnaud at Arnaud’s
    At $US1.4 million a pop, you’d want the Strawberry Arnaud to taste pretty damn good. The signature dessert at Arnaud’s restaurant in New Orleans, this sweet treat is a patented compilation of vanilla ice-cream and fresh strawberries soaked in a port–red wine sauce. The “icing on the cake” is whipped cream, mint and a five-karat pink diamond ring. La de da.

    2. Platinum Cake by Nobue Ikara
    Now for something a little more “affordable”: the Platinum Cake by Japanese pastry chef, Nobue Ikara. Coming in at around $US140,000, it seems like a bargain compared to the Strawberry Arnaud. Designed as a tribute to beautiful women, the cake is draped in platinum necklaces and foils (some of which are edible).

    3. Frrrozen Haute Chocolate at Serendipity 3
    No, it’s not a typo; this dessert by America’s Serendipity 3 restaurant has three ‘r’s. It also has a hefty price tag at $US25,000. The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate is a blend of 28 cocoas – 14 of which are the most expensive and exotic in the world. If that’s not enough to make you balk, it’s infused with five grams of edible gold and has a gold bracelet with diamonds at the base. Even more, the dessert is eaten with a gold spoon that’s pimped out with white and chocolate diamonds (which is yours to keep).

    4. The Stilt Fisherman Indulgence at The Fortress
    Perhaps the weirdest-named dessert on the list belongs to The Fortress, a luxury hotel in Sri Lanka. The creation is available on request if you have a spare $US14,500 lying around. So, what exactly do you get for your money? The Stilt Fisherman Indulgence consists of Italian Cassata with golf leaf and Irish cream, mango and pomegranate compote, and a champagne-based sabayon. But the wow factor comes in the shape of a miniature chocolate carving of a fisherman. Underneath the fisherman is an 80-carat aquamarine stone which is yours to keep.

    5. Macaroons Haute Couture by Pierre Herme
    Parisian pastry chef, Pierre Herme is an artist when it comes to sweets of all shapes and sizes, but he is most famous for his macaroons. With flavours like white truffle hazelnut and apricot and pistachio, you can understand why people flock from all over the globe to buy them. Pierre makes personalised meringue puffs (Macaroons Haute Couture) for clients hankering for something unique. For around $US7,000 a kilo, you’ll be thanking your lucky stars that macaroons only weigh a few grams!

    6. The White Truffle
    One of the most expensive and refined truffles in the world is the white truffle or Alba truffle coming from the Piedmont region in northern Italy. Up until now, sows were used to find the truffles since they produce a scent that mimics a male pig sex hormone. They were replaced with dogs since the sows usually ate the truffles when they found them. The most expensive truffle ever to be sold was a specimen weighing 1.5kg. Macau casino owner, Stanley Ho paid $US330,000 for the big one. Ouch.
