The ultimate in creamy decadence, the Golden Opulence Sundae at Serendipity 3 lavishes you with some of the finest things in life. At the astounding price of $1,000 per sundae, this treat holds the record as the Guiness Book of World Record’s most expensive sundae. No doubt, if you order this, you will impress all those around.
Served in a Baccarat Harcourt Crystal goblet lined with 23-carat edible gold leaf, scoops of Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla serve as the base. These ice cream is then covered in more edible gold leaf and drizzled with Amedi Porceleana chocolate (the most expensive chocolate in the world).
Chunks of very rare Chuao chocolate (made from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela’s coast), exotic candied fruit from Paris, dark and milk chocolate truffles, and gold dragets top the sundae. A small glass bowl of Grand Passion caviar that is sweetened and infused with fresh orange, fresh passion fruit and Armagnac, is nestled on top of all the other mouthwatering ingredients.
Finally, the entire sundae is crowned with a gilded sugar flower, and served with an 18-carat gold spoon to eat with. At the end of this luxurious experience, an added bonus is that you get to take home the gorgeous Baccarat crystal goblet, as a memento.
This divine dessert is rich and delicious and it is hard to not feel wealth emanating from all around you, after you polish it off. You will be missing out, if you don’t try the Golden Opulence Sundae at least once in your lifetime.
