Expensive cupcake with Louis XIII Cognac

Palazzo Cupcake CognacTargeting sweet-toothed high rollers, one Las Vegas bakery is selling a $750 cupcake.
The aptly named Decadence D’Or, on the menu at The Palazzo hotel’s Sweet Surrender store, is crafted out of Venezuelan chocolate, Tahitian vanilla butter cream, 100-year-old cognac and gold leaf.
Apart from the ingredients – and indeed the price – another unique feature is its fancy fleur-de-lis shape.

This $750 cupcake is made from Palmira Single Estate chocolate, which is so exclusive that it’s only released in vintages. Then there’s the frosting made from Charentes-Poitou AOC butter crafted by a French butter cooperative founded in 1888 (legit), which is then mixed with Tahitian Gold vanilla caviar. The majority of the ingredients in the Decadence D’Or have either been hand-picked or hand cultivated at this point. Then they add Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac, blended from 1200 cognacs between 40 to 100 years old. Following so far?

Finally it’s topped off with edible gold flakes. Because rich people…
