I have realized that the formula to make anything get the numero uno spot in “world’s most expensive” anything is to add a whole lot of bling to it. And it doesn’t end at iPads, or wristwatches. Now you hear of bejeweled cakes too! I am waiting for the day when I hear of diamond encrusted toilet paper. Moving on, the most expensive cake that I am talking about is going to be featured at the upcoming National Gay Wedding Show to be held in Liverpool.
This six tier cake is worth around £32.4 million and contains more than two thousand diamonds adding up to a whopping 2046 carats! The brains behind this cake are jewelers Russell and Case. They are based from Bling Bling Street in Liverpool. Yes, I smiled at the name of the street too. The cake makers are Tim and Jules Smith of CAKE based in Chester, who say they jumped at the opportunity to make this special cake. It over one and a half meters high and has these diamonds sprinkled all over it, like the proverbial icing on the cake. The cake that last held this title was valued at $20 million and was made in collaboration with Mimi So Jewellers and cake designer Nahid La Patisserie Artistique from the US.
This cake will be on display on 3rd March at the BT Convention Centre, Echo Arena in Liverpool. Some lucky ones will be able to taste it too. Laura Davies, Marketing and Events Manager for The National Gay Wedding Show said: “We wanted to do something huge for The National Gay Wedding Show, and this cake really is huge!” Indeed! I wonder how they will serve it, with the sparkly icing or will they scrape it off. Would not want someone to choke on the diamonds.
