There have been a lot of talk lately about the end of the cupcake. People have been saying that the little cakes had a good run but now, thanks to market saturation, their time in Carrie Bradshaw’s purse are done. Not so fast. Perhaps there is still life in this flour-based art.
Introducing the Decadence D’Or, the bougiest cupcake ever created. It’s available in Las Vegas at Sweet Surrender bakery, located in the Palazzo. Did I mention it costs $750? What will three quarters of a grand get you in cupcake these days? It’s made from vintage (really) Palmira Single Estate chocolate. The frosting is made form Charentes-Poitou AOC butter, which is then mixed with Tahitian Gold vanilla caviar. At some point, Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac is added into the mix and then the whole thing is topped with edible gold flakes.
I wouldn’t be sure whether to eat this or put it in a museum.
