World's Most Expensive Dessert

If you were to be one of the richest person on earth, how much would you fancy paying to sink your teeth into the world's most expensive dessert?

Well, you dont really have to be one of the richest person on earth, perhaps any millionaire (not million-hair like me hahahaha!) could afford this.

So what is the world's most expensive ingredient .. in order to create this expensive dish???

Its called The Fortress Aquamarine. Available at Wine3 at The Fortress, Galle, Sri Lanka! Price ..... US$14,500!

This dessert, which debuted in March, was inspired by the success of the restaurant’s other gem-studded treat, the Bombay Sapphire Martini. The star of the show is an 80-carat aquamarine gem (the main ingredient?) that rests on a sliver of chocolate shaped to resemble the traditional stilt fisherman that’s part of the resort’s logo.

Handmade glass utensils (not included in the price) complete the presentation. And yes, diners can pocket the gemstone after polishing off the dessert.

And how many have been sold so far ..... none they say.
