Millionaire's ice cream
Date: 2010-09-20 14:17:03

Stephen Bruce, co-founder and owner of the ‘Serendipity 3’ eatery in New York City, was looking for a novel way to celebrate his café’s 50th anniversary. He came up with the idea of ‘The Golden Opulence Sundae’.

Feast your imagination on the following decadent elements all combined to bring you this mind-boggling desert:

  • 5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream

  • Infused with Madagascar vanilla beans

  • And chunks of rare Chuao chocolate from the Venezuelan coast

  • Drizzled with the world’s most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana
  • Covered in 23-carat edible gold leaf

  • Adorned with candied fruits from Paris, gold covered almonds, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries

  • Topped with a dollop of sweet Grande Passion caviar. This is dessert caviar made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden colour. The caviar is sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac, served on a mother of pearl spoon

  • Served with a gilded sugar flower made by well-known specialty cake designer, Ron Ben-Israel

  • Served in a Baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet (valued at three hundred dollars – which you get to keep)

  • Eaten with an 18-carat gold spoon (which you don’t get to keep)

Please bear in mind that the exclusivity of this desert is not only maintained by its hefty price tag ($1,000) it is also advertised only via word-of-mouth. It does not appear on the menu!

In the event that you have the necessary capital and contacts to procure The Golden Opulence you will still need to ‘book an appointment’ by providing Serendipity 3 with at least a 48 hour notice period. This is necessary as many of the ingredients have to be specially flown in from around the world.

“It’s bold and over the top,” says its creator Stephen Bruce. “Like most things in New York.”

This jaw-dropping desert has unsurprisingly made it into the Guinness World Record Book as the most expensive dessert on Earth. Just the kind of ending you’d like for your celebratory meal after hitting the Jackpot on this week!
