The $750 Cupcake is For People With Expensive Tastes

$750 Cupcake

Got a sweet tooth? Not just a regular one, but an expensive sweet tooth? Then you’ll absolutely relish taking a bite out of Palazzo’s Decadence D’Or cupcake. It costs all of $750, which is probably enough for a several weeks’ rent for some people. To say that the price of this teensy weensy cupcake is atrocious is probably an understatement. But hey, if you can afford it, then why not?

The decadent cupcake is made using fancy Palmira Single Estate chocolate while the frosting is whipped up using Charentes-Poitou AOC butter mixed with Tahitian Gold vanilla caviar. Mmm-hmm! As if that doesn’t sound rich enough, the cake is topped off with Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac and bits of edible gold flakes for good measure. The final touch lies in how the cupcake is presented, with the cake encased in chocolate mold and a hand-blown sugar fleur-de-lis cherry on top.

These Dexter-Themed Cupcakes Look Too Painful To Eat

Dexter Cupcakes

After a lengthy but much-deserved hiatus, everyone’s favorite serial killer is back for his seventh season on the small screen. Dexter isn’t afraid to shed a little blood (or, okay, make that a whole lot of blood) if he thinks that the person he’s after is guilty. And what better way to celebrate the season premiere with cupcakes that look almost too painful to eat?

New York City’s Magnolia Bakery whipped up a batch of red velvet cupcakes that are generously topped with shards of broken glass. In keeping with the theme, the cupcakes were then drizzled with pig’s blood as a finishing touch. Appetizing, isn’t it? We’re just kidding, of course. The glass is actually clear candy glass and that’s just bloody-red syrup dripping from the frosted cupcakes. Yum!
