One of the most talked about deserts to come out of New York City is the famed Ice cream sundae “The Grand Golden Opulence Sundae” from the Serendipity store on 60th street. This desert is a 24k edible gold leaf ice cream that will cost you $1,000 dollars to indulge in.
The sundae currently holds the Guiness Book World Record for most expensive sundae ever, and was created in celebration of Serendipity’s 50th anniversary.
Here’s what’s inside the famed sundae:
“5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla and covered in 23K edible gold leaf, the sundae is drizzled with the world's most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela's coast. The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It's sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the indulgence served with a petite mother of pearl spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel.”
