If you’re wondering which of the world’s billionaire’s wedding the cake was designed for, refrain from your thoughts, because this is no wedding cake but a birthday/engagement party cake presented to a super lucky daughter by her most-loved and hyper-rich dad. This has to go down in history as one of the most opulent display of love ever from a father to a child. At a whopping price tag of $75 million, it is easily the world’s most expensive cake.
The UAE family who preferred to remain concealed to the public hired Debbie Wingham, a British couturier turned baker to create this incredible 6-foot long bejeweled cake. The cake designed as a semblance of a catwalk runway, is made up of all you can find on a typical runway, from models to the front-line guests spotted with flashy handbags, shoes, shades and sophisticated gadgets including a photographer in a crouch position snapping pictures of the models, all of which are edible, but one has to be careful not to choke on the diamonds fixed on their bodies.
Dresses worn by the models are a replica of the exact dresses previously designed by the cake maker. To further realize its appearance, the cake has a digital LCD mini TV which serves as the fashion wall and a sound-activated LED lighting Bose music system.
The 430 kg handmade cake which took the designer an approximate 1,100 hours to finish is composed of a combined 180 kg worth of fondant and other confectioneries. According to her, parts of the cake was made from Madagascan vanilla bean with mascarpone cream and strawberry conserves and some other parts from triple Belgium chocolate with chocolate ganache and chocolate truffle cream.
The entire cake boasts a total of 4,000 diamonds; the runway is adorned with 75 three carat black diamonds and 400 one carat, 73 three carat white diamonds, on the icing are 6.4 carat yellow diamond, 5.2 carat pink diamond and 15 individual 5 carat white diamonds, all of which are worth more than $45 million.
There are also about 34,00 stones including emeralds and amethyst sprinkled all over the cake. This is extravagance on a whole new level. If all of this was made just for the engagement party then we wonder what will make up the wedding cake.
