in Latest/Slider

What could be more decadent than a cake? After all, it has all the artery-clogging cholesterol-rich ingredients like flour, butter, eggs, and sugar.

But apparently, a plain ol’ cake is too boring for this super wealthy Arab family, so they decided to throw a few diamonds into their cake mix.

They recently splurged an eye-watering $75 million on a bejweled cake for their daughter’s birthday-cum-engagement party.

British designer Debbie Wingham, who turned to baking after previously creating the world’s most expensive dress, was commissioned to make the cake. The identity of the family – living in the UAE – has not been revealed, but there are plenty of pictures online of Debbie and the extravagant dessert.

he six-foot-long confection was created to resemble a catwalk, with models wearing edible versions of the gowns that Debbie designed for the bride. Surrounding the runway were little figurines dressed in designer clothing, handbags, shoes, and shades, and carrying the latest smartphones and tablets.

Each decorative piece was handcrafted by Debbie herself, and the entire cake took 1,100 hours to prepare.

Over 120kg of fondant icing, 60kg of modelling chocolate, and 80 different airbrushed colours and effects went into the making of the 450kg edible masterpiece.

But the real ‘icing’ on the cake were 17 precious stones, worth a whopping 30 million pounds. They included a 5.2 carat pink diamond, a 6.4 carat yellow diamond, and 15 individual 5 carat white diamonds. 4,000 smaller diamonds, amethysts, and emeralds – between one and five carats – were also part of the decor. The runway alone consisted of 400 one-carat and 73 three-carat white diamonds, and 75 three-carat black diamonds.

Well, if you ask us, the cake looks a little tacky. But as long as it makes them happy, then nothing else matters.

“I feel delighted that the cake was a great success and the clients last night were over the moon and the guests,” Debbie told Daily Mail. “The cake was very time consuming with extremely tiny details but I tried to make it as true to a runway show as possible.”
