While the discussion continues to be bogged down, wrongly so, about the so called “1%”, the REAL rich of the worl continue to have their (cup)cake, and eat it too.
The Bloomsbury Cafe, in the new playground of the worlds elite- Dubai, has unleashed the worlds most expensive cupcake. The $1,000 “Golden Phoenix”, including italian chocolate, 23K edible gold sheets, strawberries (organic, of course) and edible gold dust. To be washed down by the $7,500 55 year old single malt scothch based dring at the Dubai Burj Al Arab hotel.
Closer to home one can enjoy the $18,713 desert at New Yorks Serendipity restaurant, adorned with 5 grams of edible gold. After your cheap $293 burger there.
Ah, the good life. The things that the rich truly spend their (tax savings) on. So, just be glad you voted republican the next time your standing in line at the grocery store, worrying about the bill. Your government, and your employer truly care about you…
