This cupcake is a delicious opus. One thing I hate about Bloomsbury's is their mascot, Zonker The Cat. However, their political overtones I can take or leave.

Is gokd leaf tasty? I wouldn't think so, but rich people want to eat it.

/Caviar is gross, truffles are meh
//Rich people are weird

Literally and figuratively.

But isn't it worth $1,000 to have glittery poo the next day?

/Okay, cupcake is coming out...

Subby must be fat, with all the cupcake, and the copy pasta.

Ya know how you make this a real contender for Worlds most expensive food stuff?

Serve it as the inflight snack at Virgin Galactic.

$1007. isn't that much for a cupcake. I'll bet Mitt Romney eats three thousand-dollar cupcakes before lunch. I was hoping more for a million-dollar cupcake.

"We are really excited to have unveiled the most expensive cupcake in the world," said Vinay Lall, the general manager of Tablez Food Company, which owns the concept of Bloomsbury's.

If Vinay Lall finds a cupcake exciting, he would appear to be slightly duller than this man:

It's not about the taste, it's about the texture.

Now diamonds, diamonds are damn delicious.

Ugh.

The continued existence of Dubai is perfect proof that there is no just overseeing god.

Dubai is a darn near perfect symbol of what's wrong with the world today, and all the shocking waste and inhumanity that the "free market" can wreak when it's not sufficiently regulated.

To me there's few things more offensive than people dining on $1,000+ gold-leaf cupcakes while children starve.

Setting off a big nuke in the downtown area could only make the world a better place.

Just adding gold to the dessert seems like cheating

Since the previous record holder had gems, this is much more fair.

Nah, it still seems a way to just add cost

Needed some saffron in it, maybe some shaved truffle. If they hired the guys that do iron chef, then it would have been ridiculously expensive without resorting to precious metals or diamonds

That thing looks like shiat and probably doesn't even taste very good :p

I'll bet that gold leaf makes the chocolate taste terrible.

I can hook you up with that for just a couple bucks. Call me.

That's what I thought, too. I could squish my wife's wedding ring into a regular cupcake and blow this one's value out of the water.

Ugandan Vanilla? I'm sold.

It's the tears of the child labor that gives the Ugandan vanilla it's extra "something".

I like how the terrorists hate America for our grand presentations of wealth -- yet they never seem to go after Dubai.

/Conclusion: The US Government did 9/11

Agreed.

Last I heard, the future of Dubai is still looking bleak (economically).
I wouldn't mind the city getting nuked, although the South Asian and African slaves should be evacuated beforehand.

The only purpose of the one-grand cupcake is so that their buyers can brag about buying a one-grand cupcake.

Dubai isn't like it is because of the "free market". It's because they're squandering their oil wealth. They're basically like children. They've been given money rather than earning it and so they have no respect for it. Every bit of diversification is costing money. They're not making investments, they're running things at a loss.

Fact is, places in the desert are seriously problematic. You can't grow food or live without aircon, so the cost of everything is going to be more than somewhere with a temperate climate. Which means that it's hard to compete. If the west figures out fusion, Dubai is going to be a ghost town quite quickly.

and yes, the only reason all these "most expensive" records get set is because they slap edible gold leaf, caviar or truffles on.

Seriously, no-one wanting the best vanilla would go for anything less than Madagascan Bourbon.

I can see someone who frequents this ski resort in Dubai ordering that cupcake:

People who complain about the free market are usually complaining about something that is has nothing to do with free markets.. like the UAE.

Ingredients obtained through the use of forsaken children are not really Pinkie Pie's whole bag, baby.

Now, had you said Pinkemena Diane Pie.....

Those guys look pretty happy! Maybe someone else ordered a HEMI Pick-up?

The catch is you have to be in a country as stupid as Dubai to eat it, and you're a moron if you'd pay that for a cupcake.
