Let them eat cake - but only if they can afford it! The world's most expensive cupcake is now on sale for a princely cost of $1,007.
Made using 23-carat edible gold sheets, the Golden Phoenix went on sale on Thursday to celebrate the opening of the cupcake franchise Bloomsbury's in the Dubai Mall.
Other high-end ingredients include organic flour and butter, imported from the UK, Italian chocolate and vanilla beans from Uganda.
For added decadence, the costly cupcake is presented on a 24-carat gold stand, alongside a golden spoon, topped with chocolate icing, strawberries dipped in edible gold, and various other adornments.
The cupcake is available to order from the Dubai Mall's Bloomsbury's outlet. Each order is expected to take 48 hours to complete.
