At Le Dolci Bakery in Toronto, a man put in a request for bakers to come up with the most over-the-top cupcake possible for his wife's 40th birthday, according to CTV News. The cost? A whopping $900.
To create the extravagant dessert, the bakery's pastry squad brainstormed for a few days, coming up with a creation whipped up with some of the priciest ingredients in the world.
Kona Blue Mountain coffee, sea salt from Camargue, France, pastry cream made with Krug Collection Brut Champagne, a limited edition Courvoisier, 24-karat gold dust and leaves, and Amadei Italian chocolate were just some of the ingredients included.
"We usually get custom-sculpted cake requests from our wealthy clientele, like a cake in the shape of a grand piano, Corvette or the birthday boy's Porsche but this is the first time we had a customer request to make an extravagant cupcake for his wife's 40th birthday," Le Dolci's Lisa Sanguedolce wrote in an email to Relaxnews.
If the $900 cupcake inspires anyone else in the city to shell out big bucks for their sweetie's sweet tooth, the bakery is now accepting custom orders for the mystery man's lavish dessert.
