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.

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!
