Sweet Surrender, a shop inside of The Palazzo, Las Vegas, offers the crème de la crème for the most passionate of cupcake lovers.
The Decadence D’Or will set you back a paltry $750. It’s made with a chocolate cake laced with ganache filling created from a special Valhrona chocolate called Porcelana, rich French A.O.C butter, and Tahitian Gold Vanilla Caviar (which apparently is a big deal that takes over a year to harvest). Then edible gold flakes are hand-applied to the frosting and topped with a hand-blown sugar fleur-de-lis filled with Louis XIII Cognac. The cupcake is served on a curved cracked-gold plate and bowl. The pastry chefs at Sweet Surrender require 48 hours advance notice to order this treat.
