World's most expensive dessert

Do you have tons of money and no where to spend?
For me, this only happens in my dreams.... :P

The Fortress Sri Lanka, an award winning luxury resort in Galle, has created the most expensive dessert in the world called "The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence". This dessert is priced at US $14,500.

A combination of a gold leaf Italian kasata, flavoured with Irish cream and served with a mango and pomegranate compote and a bubbly-based sabayon enlighten, forms the mouthwatering base of this delicious desert. The finishing touch is the 80-carat aquamarine stone nestled on the handmade chocolate stilt fisherman.

Legend has it that an aquamarine has the power to calm, sooth and heal. Its blue colour is often reflective of the ocean and the life giving properties of water and has been used over the years by sailors and fishermen for protection and luck. It also has a soothing effect on relationships and is said to endow the owner with foresight, courage and happiness, the recipe for a long and happy marriage and the perfect gift for those looking to surprise their loved one.

The dessert is available only on special request, but no one has ordered it yet.

I am not surprised that no one has ordered this dessert yet. Who wants to spend a fortune on a dessert?
