World's Most Expensive Cake Is Dripping With Diamonds And Worth £48.5m

If you’ve got a few million quid to spare and fancy pushing out the boat – why not order the world’s most expensive cake?

Valued at £48.5million, this is no bog-standard Victoria sponge.

It’s the painstaking work of British courtier turned caketress Debbie Wingham.

Debbie Wingham is the brains behind this stupendously expensive cake

It was commissioned by an anonymous UAE client to showcase a vast collection of heirloom stones to be gifted to their daughter during a joint birthday and engagement party.

The 6ft cake is in the form of a fashion catwalk and features a model and a front-row audience – all completely edible.

What is less edible is the frosting, which consists of:

  • One 5.2 carat pink diamond
  • One 6.4 carat yellow diamond
  • 15 5 carat white diamnds
  • 76 2 carat black diamonds
  • 62 2 carat white diamonds
  • 4,000 further stones of 1 carat or more including amethysts and emeralds

A further 400 1 carat , 75 3 carat white diamonds and 75 3 carat black diamonds make up the runway.

Mind you don’t choke on those priceless stones now…
