In Las Vegas you'll find a sweet treat like no other. It's a cupcake that comes with a bill roughly commensurate with an inter-continental flight. It costs $750.
The little treasure is made from100-year-old Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac, Palmira Single Estate Chocolate from the rare Porcelain Crillo bean, Tahita Gold Vanilla Caviar (the most labour-intensive agricultural crop on the planet) and edible gold flakes. Yummy.
The pricey morsel is called Decadence D'Or and it's on sale at Sweet Surrenders, a candy and cupcake shop in the Palazzo Resort on the Las Vegas strip.
They sell other cupcakes such as Red Velvet and Lemon Strawberry, which would make you worry you less if you dropped them on the floor, but if you fancied something very irresponsible - you know where to look.
