world's most expensive dessert

A Sri Lankan resort is charging $14,500 for what it calls the world's most expensive dessert, a fruit-infused confection complete with a chocolate sculpture and a gigantic gemstone.

"The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence" was created to give visitors at The Fortress resort in the coastal city of Galle a one-of-a-kind experience, said the hotel's public relations manager, Shalini Perera.

The dessert is a gold leaf Italian cheesecake flavored with Irish cream, served with a mango and pomegranate compote and a foamy champagne sauce. It's also decorated with a chocolate carving of a fisherman clinging to a stilt — an age-old local fishing practice — and an 80-carat aquamarine stone.

The dessert has to be specially ordered, Perera said. Though the hotel has received calls about it from as far away as Japan, she said, no one has yet forked over the money to try it.

Wow, this dessert is really taking dining to a whole new level. I wonder if anyone will ever order this. Maybe they should make a lesser version with out the stone and the chocolate carving. Or let the customers put in a stone they have purchased to give to their loved one in the dessert. How cute and creative would that be?
