This is what a $900 cupcake looks like
The five-star cakelet was created by Le Dolci bakery on Dundas West—yes, that Le Dolci bakery—for the world’s most generous (albeit possibly misguided) husband, who figured it would be just the thing for his wife’s birthday. And what, you ask, turns a kids’ party snack into something priced on par with a really good mattress? All the following things, according to the Globe: pastry cream spiked with $1,000-a-bottle champagne, buttercream frosting made with imported European ingredients, delicate sugar-spun flora painted with edible gold, and a miniature vial of Courvoisier (for drizzling atop the dessert prior to consumption). What isn’t included, unfortunately, is all the booze required to erase the memory of spending $900 on a very tiny cake.
