$35,000 is a lot of money. It could mean paying for college tuition, a vacation around the world, three to five years of Lakers season tickets, or, in the instance of one dessert in England, some chocolate pudding

To be fair, this is no ordinary chocolate pudding. Devised by the British company Wave Jewelry and Chef Marc Guilbert, this chocolate concoction is made up of orange, peach, and whiskey flavored Belgian chocolate, layered with champagne jelly and a light biscuit joconde. The dessert is styled to look like a Fabergé egg and is finished with bitter chocolate and gold leaf. 

But wait, there’s more! The chocolate confection is decorated with handmade chocolate flowers, even more gold leaf, Champagne and strawberry caviar, and a 2.62-carat diamond ring. The ring, which was personally selected by Paul Henderson, the owner of Wave Jewelry, boasts a radiant chocolate diamond set in 18-carat rose gold. 

But this is more than just a lavish dessert; it is an experience. A complimentary night’s stay and dinner at the four-star Lindeth Howe hotel, as well as a bottle of Chateau d’Yquem, one of the finest and most expensive dessert wines priced around $800 a bottle, are all included.

The current Guinness World Record for the most expensive dessert is held by the New York City Serendipity 3 restaurant and their $25,000 Frrrozen Haute Chocolate. But the folks over at Serendipity 3 don’t have to worry just yet. Wave Jewelry’s dessert won’t earn its title until someone with a taste for the finest things in life and very deep pockets orders one. 

Anyone looking to indulge can order the dessert on Wave’s website. However, it must be ordered three weeks in advance, so the diamond ring can be fitted perfectly to the buyer’s hand. Until then, the confection is on display at the Lindeth Howe for anyone curious enough to see exactly what $35,000 incarnated in chocolate looks like.

Both desserts look and sound amazing! $35,000 or not, it would last about 5 minutes with me if I ever had enough money to pay for it...................
