Guinness Book of World Records will make it official when someone actuallys purchases the dessert.
The bejeweled chocolate dessert was the creation of the Wave Jewellery retail store in Kendal, U.K., and Marc Guilbert, the head chef at the nearby Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel. It’s an extravagant show love that will cost a lucky couple 22,000 pounds ($34,700).
The cake—which will be launched during National Chocolate Week (October 10-17)—is made with four different types of the Belgian chocolate flavored with a combination of peach, orange and whiskey.
Styled like a Faberge Easter egg, the crafted dessert is layered with champagne jelly and a light biscuit joconde. It’s finished with bitter dark chocolate and glazed with edible gold leaf. It is further decorated with handmade chocolate flowers. As a finishing touch the dessert is served with champagne and strawberry caviar.
If that’s not enough luxury, the dessert comes with one of the finest and most expensive bottles of dessert wine—Chateau d’Yquem, which is priced at around 500 pounds ($788) per bottle.
The dessert also includes a complimentary night’s stay at Lindeth Howe and an evening meal.
The current world’s record, according to Guiness, is held by New York’s Serendipity 3 Restaurant with a $25,000 Frrrozen Haute Chocolate sundae.
Anyone wanting to buy the dessert will need to order it from Wave Jewellery three weeks in advance. For everyone else, the dessert will be on display at the hotel.
Wave Jewellery also has stores in London, Manchester, Lancaster and Bowness.
