Over the past few years you may have noticed a surge in the number of dessert parlours that have been popping up across towns and cities in the UK. From ice cream sundaes to doughnuts and waffles people are going mad for sweet treats! Many of the desserts that are now available come to the same price as a meal if not more, and with this in mind we set out to try and discover some of the most expensive desserts from across the globe.

5 – The £650 Golden Phoenix Cupcake

In 2012 Bloomsbury’s cupcake store in Dubai unveiled the world’s most expensive cupcake priced at around £650. It is made from the finest chocolate and wrapped in 23 carats of edible gold sheets. The ingredients were sourced from around the world with the flour coming from Dover in the UK, the cocoa from Italy and the vanilla beans from Uganda.

4 – Krispy Kreme’s £1,000 Luxe Doughnut

The department store Selfridges in London partnered up with the American doughnut chain Krisy Kreme to produce the world’s most expensive doughnut. The Luxe Doughnut has a 24 carat gold leaf, gold dusted white chocolate flowers, edible diamonds and Dom Perignon champaign jelly. To put into context just how much this doughnut costs, for the same price you could purchase 2000 glazed doughnuts!

Top 5 Unique And Thoughtful Gifts For Mothers

Struggling to find the perfect gift for Parents’ Day? Here are our top 5 unique and thoughtful gifts for mothers.

Mothers play a very important role in our lives. They’re there for us when we’re ill, they cook our favorite meals and they’re always ready to embarrass us with unfortunate tales when we introduce them to new friends. To show them that we really do care (even when we don’t have enough time in our busy lives to call home) – here are our top 5 gift ideas for the most important woman in our lives.

Personalized Kindle and Case

Kindles can make great presents, especially when you add an extra personal touch by loading it up with book recommendations. A tip for thoughtful present giving – load up personal favorite reads and leave a message with each book; a ‘thinking of you’ or ‘I think you’ll enjoy this’ will make all the difference. Books are a great way to connect and your mother will love the time and care you put into creating the perfect gift (hopefully nearly as much as mine did).
