In true New Orleans fashion the Windsor Court Hotel is offering a $90,000 dessert fit for a queen.
the confection is a gold-encrusted cake topped with a 3.95-carat ruby ring in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, which is today. The oval ruby is surrounded by diamonds and set in 18k white gold.
The jewel is supplied by M.S Rau Antiques, a well-known New Orleans antiques dealer.
The ring will sit atop of a 24k gold encrusted dark chocolate cake with a Cristal champagne fruit sauce of raspberry and passion fruit. It’s further decorated with gold chocolate, gold covered strawberries and a gold dusted-chocolate crunch. The cake was created by hotel pastry chef Shun Li.
The bejeweled dessert is part of a three-day accommodation package, titled “Royal Stay at Windsor Court,” offered by the hotel that includes private tours of the Windsor Court art collection and M.S. Rau Antiques, private spa treatments and a “Collection Tasting” dinner for four with wine pairings, where the $90,000 dessert will be presented.
The promotion started today (Thursday) and will run through July. Contact the hotel for more information and to make a reservation.
