golden cupcake

A UK confectionary firm, Bloomsbury, has unveiled the world’s most expensive edible cupcake in its Dubai café.

Named The Golden Phoenix, the cake costs Dhs3,700 ($1,010) thanks to a list of ingredients such as Italian chocolate and 23-carat edible gold sheets.

The Dubai Mall outlet of the café opened on June 28, 2012, marking the one-year anniversary of Bloomsbury’s, which first opened its doors last year in Abu Dhabi.
