The Golden Phoenix Cupcake – $1,000 – This cupcake is available in a small bakery named Bloomsbury’s in the Dubai Mall. Why is this dessert so expensive? The reason is the ingredients include Ugandan vanilla beans, Italian chocolate, and strawberries dipped in gold. On top of all that, the icing is dusted in edible gold.
The bakery enriches your dining experience by providing you a golden spoon to eat this cupcake. Thus, you get a satisfying and unique experience for the grand amount you shell out. However, you cannot take home the spoon and need to be satisfied with the quantity of gold consisting of the 23-carat edible gold sheets that you consume when you eat this dessert.

Very interesting, a different world isn’t it heheh!
Have an expensivetastic WWS ➡
Yes and a world I don’t want to be a part of. 🙂
While it looks good, the only thought that comes to mind is “what a waste!” Sorry, but that kind of frivolous spending when people are starving just doesn’t sit well. Happy #WW nonetheless! 🙂
I love doing this to show how some people have too much money. They aren’t helping others, just buying a cupcake for 1K. 🙂
My first thought on seeing that was it looks too good to eat….and then I read about it!!
Wow really??? Does anyone actually pay that amount of money to eat something.
I don’t have any idea of how many people would pay for this, but I’m sure someone does. Supply and demand. 🙂
Oh yum, yum, that sure is foodables fir fur a Princess…wanna share??????
Loves and licky kisses

You’re a princess so you can have whatever you want, but chocolate isn’t good for pups. 🙂
Wow! $1,000 for a cupcake coated with edible gold and eaten with a gold spoon! Speechless!
That’ makes two of us, Nancy. I’m speechless too. 🙂
I had the same thought as Debbie, what a waste. From a bakers standpoint I can understand wanting to create something unique and delicious but in my world, anyone who would pay $1,000 for one cupcake is an idiot. There are far better things to spend your money on and at a much better price.
The other thing is what happens to that $1000 cupcake if no one buys it. Sitting next tot he hostess cupcake in the garbage they pretty much have the same value.
Yes, it is a waste of money. I agree. 🙂
My guess is they don’t make it until you order it. There are many places like that. I would never spend that kind of money on a cupcake. 🙂
I’ve heard things can get a bit extravagant in Dubai. Someone said the police drive Lamborghinis.
I didn’t know that. I’ll go check that out. 🙂
This is interesting and even pretty photographed but seriously $1000? I’ll skip it, go straight to Walmart and shell out less than five bucks for the ingredients, come home, and make a whole dozen cupcakes…chocolate ones at that! 🙂 Yes, I’m too darn practical and silly at the same time. lol Happy WW, dearie! xx
I hear you and I’ll go with you to Walmart. I’m just as practical as you are. Happy WW to you too. 🙂
You are the smartest Cathy. 😃
That sure looks yummy. But it is just a little out of our price range. Sandee, you and Zane have a terrific day.
That’s way out of my price range. You have a terrific day too, Marg. 🙂
YIKES! Sounds more like they are enriching their cash register!
I wonder how many of these they sell a day. I wouldn’t think many. 🙂
My mom says she loves chocolate and strawberries, but she doesn’t want to eat gold, not even edible gold. I’m sure some people will buy this stuff. We could get a lot of dog treats for that money!
I’m with your mom on this. You could get a lot of many things with this kind of money. 🙂
My goodness – that is an expensive cupcake! I’ve never even thought of eating gold! Hilarious!
I don’t want to eat gold either. What’s the point? 🙂
Lovely but money could feed a family for a month ~
Happy Day to you,
A ShutterBug Explores
aka (A Creative Harbor)
And feed them very well too. I agree with you. Happy day to you and Ms. Zoe. 🙂
I agree with everyone who said it is beautiful but the money could be better spent on food…. For anyone who actually thinks they need to buy this to eat, I would wonder why they felt inferior and were trying to compensate.
Can you image all the food you could buy for the price of this one cupcake? I can too. 🙂
While it’s very pretty, the thought of eating gold, edible or not, does not appeal to me! I wonder what it tastes like though? I’ll never know! LOL
I’m guessing it’s very good, but I can’t afford it. 🙂
What is the address? I’ll have my butler fly right over on my private jet to fetch me one. If I like it, I’ll do the same tomorrow.
You crack me up, Kismet. I love your comments. 🙂
I guess you can add me to the list of “Why?”. What’s the point! It looks amazing, but I suspect that one is disappointed in the taste because there is NO cupcake worth $1000. Just sayin’.
I’m on that list too. I just love seeing how ridiculous things can cost. 🙂
Sounds sinful! I don’t see the point! But Dubai is a place with superlatives (biggest, tallest, fastest and certainly the most expensive cupcake!
Yes, it had the biggest and the best of everything. 🙂
Keep the gold, I want the whipped cream 🙂 Have a great day! XO
I wonder how much that whipped cream costs? Have a great day too. 🙂
I’ve always thought Dubai make an interesting vacation destination. But I’ll pass on dessert! Be well, my dear.
I couldn’t afford to go there is this is what things cost. 🙂
I would feel guilty eating this, and not because of the calories. 🙂
That makes two of us, Eugenia. 🙂
My pet rock, Seymour, can probably handle the culinary havoc a gold cupcake would cause…
I know Seymour could handle this cupcake. He can handle most anything. 🙂
Well, if that’s doesn’t beat all!
It sure does. Way too rich for my blood. 🙂
Mom says that is too pretty to ear:) What a treasure of a cupcake!
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
I love seeing how expensive things can be and people still buy it. 🙂
silly fools are soon parted from their money !$! Have a delicious day!
Yep, that’s for sure. 🙂
To rich for this Italian. Even the ediable golden dust would be to expensive for me but I have to say, it does look scrumptious. See ya Sandee. Now I have to go finish my packing which isn’t much.
Enjoy your cruise, Paul. See you when you get back. 🙂
Oh, my! I can think of better things to spend my money on..LOL ((Hugs))
So can I. This is way over the top. 🙂
Whoa that chocolate is too rich for my wallet….WOW
Way to rich for my wallet too. I can’t imagine spending that kind of money on a cupcake. 🙂
For $1,000, I could buy a lot of regular chocolate.
I agree, Binky. 🙂
Oh my gosh I am super cheap and couln’t pay that! I would feel bad when people just pooped it out 🙂
I hadn’t thought about the pooping it out part. Now I am. 🙂
Wow! My head is spinning… and I want some really good chocolate right now. <3 Happy Wednesday!
You can get a chocolate fix way cheaper than this. Happy Wednesday to you too, Bette. 🙂
See’s Candy chocolates are our favorites and #1 daughter blesses us with a gift box of these delectable goodies each year… I’m off to raid our stash! <3 xo
Baby Girl, did I ever thank you for signing me in. It sure makes me feel good that I’m not the last one all the time!!! Muuuu-waaaaaahhhhhh! Oh… HUGS TOO! Anyway, glad you got some laughs on my video It truly is a hoot! Also, OMG eating GOLD! Wouldn’t that make you sick? Would it turn to mold if you didn’t eat it? I would just like to stare at it a very long time or maybe put it in the bank and draw interest on it! Bwahahahahaha Okay, Glad you like my babies, but the older they get the older I feel… bummer! Anyway, the 24th I go in for my shot.. NO MORE PAIN… well, for a while.. as long as the shot lasts. 🙁 Love you lots lil’ girl have a great evening! HUGS
I’ll come over to your place and we’ll go for a nice dinner at your favorite place and we won’t spend anywhere near what that cupcake costs. We’d have fun too. You’re most welcome for the link. It was my pleasure.
Love you bunches, Marie. ♥
YOU ARE THE BESTEST OF THE BESTEST!!! HUGS
It looks pretty, but in the end all you got was a cupcake and i think i would want a lot more for my $1,000. When it comes to food, i have noticed that no matter what you have a taste for, when you are done eating, it doesn’t matter what you ate, you are full and satisfied.
There are some people that would love to buy this cupcake and look down their noses at the rest of us. I’ve met some of them over my working years. Bores with a capital ‘B’. 🙂
It certainly does look impressive but not necessarily edible. I can think of many more toppings before I’d get to gold.
I’m not thrilled with the edible gold either. I can think of other toppings too. 🙂
Am I totally decadent to really want to eat that?
I’d eat it, but I’m not paying 1k for it. Just saying. 🙂
Happy Wordless Wednesday Sandee
What! A $1000 cupcake?
I’ll get a $3 cupcake and save the rest of the money.
I’m also not sure I’m want to digest 23 carat edible gold sheets.
I hope you are having a great week
I would do the same, Mary. I love seeing some of the ridiculous things people with money will buy. I can’t imagine. You have a great week too, my friend. 🙂
This one’s intriguing. Actually it left me flabbergasted and disgusted at the same time. I mean with so many people living below the poverty line why would someone waste that kind of money on a cupcake.
But I guess people who have more money than they can handle need a way to blow it up too.
Thanks for sharing this little snippet. Maybe we should all rally against this bakery and get the product banned. Lol!
Linking up with your fabulous linky. Do drop by yours as well.
Happy rest of the week ahead!
Love and cheer!
No one is going to rally against this bakery. That place is full of the rich. They don’t care about us little people. I went over and linked up to your linky too. Thanks. Have a great rest of the week, Natasha. 🙂
I’d rather spend my money on something else but this is interesting. People think of everything!
Hope all is going well with you and Zane! 2019 has started off busy for us and I need to slow it down!
The rich can spend their money on some extravagant things. Oh well, it’s their money. I hope your tax season isn’t too stressful this year. I’m sure it is though. 🙂
Well that certainly is a decadent dessert; though, I’d rather spend a bit less and not eat the gold. My favorite chocolates are from a small candy maker called Blondell in Lausanne, Switzerland. No gold, but I bet as good or better. The presentation of the golden cupcake is beautiful. Thanks for linking us up.

Even if I could afford this cupcake I still wouldn’t spend this kind of money. I’m just not wired that way. You’re most welcome for the link. Scritches to all the kitties and tons of hugs to you. 🙂
Wow, now that is an expensive desert 😳 Have a wonderful tomorrow honey. Sleep tight 😴🛏🌛 Love & Hugs coming your way for a wonderful good morning for Thursday ❤🤗
I slept in this morning and that was nice. A whole hour more than usual. I’m enjoying my second cup of coffee. Love you. 🙂
Good for you honey. I am still trying to get my other blog moved here, and keep up with everything else going on. UGH! I love you too honey, enjoy the rest of your Thursday. Love & hugs coming at you ❤🤗
You knows how many milkbones you can buy for the cost of that pupcake??? Gives me the milkbones! (it is pretty though…)
I’d be glad to give you the milkbones, Ruby. If your mom would let me that is. Kisses back. 🙂
Typical of the Dubai Mall, a place I know very well!
Never been there and it appears I wouldn’t be able to afford going there. 🙂
OMG Gold dust on your cake? The chocolate calories themselves are daunting enough leave alone the gold dust…
I think I’ll just have some cheap ice cream and call it a day. Way too rich for my blood. 🙂
Me too !
That’s insane! I say go get a regular delicious cupcake, and then use the other $999 for lots of other awesome things. 🙂
Thanks for hosting, Sandee. Hope you’re doing well!
Hi Sandee, how the rich live??? That is bonkers, give me a straight forward rich chocolate cake any day which I can enjoy with my fingers (the licking of fingers is the best bit).
I’m with you on this one. I’m always amazed at the pricey things that are out there. A different world. 🙂
Whoa…I gained 5 lbs. just looking at that luscious cupcake. Too rich for my tastes (and pocketbook!)
I’ll bet it’s really good, but it’s too rich for my blood too. 🙂
Edible gold? I’ve never heard of such a thing! The cupcake looks luscious, but I can think of at least1,000 other things to buy with $1,000 other than a cupcake!! Hope your week went well. xoxo
I hadn’t either and I can’t imagine paying that much for a cupcake. Happy weekend. 🙂
$1000 for a cupcake? dang! For that much, I should get the spoon as a take home gift. I wonder how many get ordered…. thinks about it …. maybe I should take up baking
I couldn’t believe what I was reading. That’s so much for one cupcake. I’d be happy with a Hostess cupcake for goodness sake. I’d like to keep the spoon too. 🙂
These sweet little treats satisfy the most discerning sweet eater like me.
Well, at 1K it better do a whole bunch of other things. 🙂
