Would You Indulge In The World's Most Expensive Desserts?

If you've got both expensive taste and a sweet tooth then you may want to add at a least a few, if not all, of the world's most expensive desserts to your wish list of things to try. The list topper (and therefore THE most expensive dessert in the world) is The Fortress Aquamarine from Wine3 at The Fortress in Galle, Sri Lanka. The focus of the sweet treat is an 80-carat aquamarine gem resting on a specially shaped sliver of fine chocolate representative of the company's logo. It's a gorgeous looking dessert, but not many have any idea if it tastes equally as good since priced at $14,500 After you have gobbled the dessert, you can put the gemstone in your pocket. Till now, has yet to sell their first one.

I am a passionate dessert ~lover, I love tiramisu and blackforest cake. I sure splurge to one thing, for once besides food, bags, shoes, dresess but I am not totally sure why anyone would pay $14,500 on a single dessert. Personally I can't figure out why it would be worth it,
ridiculously expensive, love dessert, but this is ridiculous. gosh I don't have money to throw away in the first place I mean it looks beautiful and I like surprises (an 80carat aquamarine is Quite the surprise) but it's too much. Like others said, just because you have the money doesn't mean you should spend it like a crazy person. Have some self control. I wonder what the quality of the aquamarine is. I know they scratch pretty easily, so if it's in with food, that might be kinda weird. It better be PERFECT for that price.These are all very pretty works of art that I would never spend money on even if I had that to throw away. Its dessert! you eat it and it goes down the toilet eventually (sorry for the less then pretty vision). I wonder if they even taste good.

Anyways, I was watching the t.v a few days ago, and it said :“$25K - Cost of Serendipity 3’s “Frrrozen Haute Chocolate,” a blend of 28 cocoas infused with five grams of edible 23-karat gold that will be unveiled today by Guinness World Records officials as the “Most Expensive Dessert in the World.” Served in a goblet lined with edible gold, the dessert is eaten with a solid 18-karat gold spoon encrusted with diamonds.

I blogged about this myself on my blog 3 days ago..and NO, it's totally not worth 25000 bucks,even if they allow you to take the golden spoon home with you:)
