Retail jeweller Wave Jewellery has teamed up with chef Marc Guilbert to create what could be the world’s most expensive chocolate desert at £22,000.
The pudding, which has been created to celebrate this week’s National Chocolate Week, has been styled like a Faberge egg. The list of ingredients used to make the cake include four types of orange, peach and whisky-flavoured Belgian chocolate, a layer of champagne jelly, handmade chocolate flowers, a light biscuit joconde, bitter dark chocolate and edible gold leaf.
And to top it all off, the egg is finished with an 18ct rose gold ring set with a 2.62ct chocolate diamond, selected especially by Wave owner Paul Henderson and designed in house.
If this wasn’t enough luxury already, the £22,000 price tag also includes a serving of champagne and strawberry caviar, a bottle of Chateau d’Yquem, which is one of the most expensive bottles of desert wine at £500, and a night’s stay plus dinner at 4-star hotel Lindeth Howe in the Lake District where Guilbert is a chef.
This chocolate and jewellery experience from Wave could potentially smash the current world record for the most expensive pudding, which is held by New York restaurant Serendipity 3 Restaurant with a £12,000 pudding, but Wave won’t enter the Guinness Book of World Records until a customer stumps up the cash to buy it. The retailer is currently selling it online at wavejewellery.com and is on display at the Lindeth Howe hotel. The product must be ordered three weeks in advance and the ring can be resized to fit.
Wave is not the first jeweller in the UK to create a pricey cake. Back in May 2010 Rox unveiled a cupcake scattered with £100,000-worth of diamonds that it took to Glasgow consumer event Glam.
