The cupcake was made with a $1,000 bottle of champagne -- which the client brought in as her pastry chef only needed a couple of tablespoons -- plus 21-year-old Courvosier. The ingredient list was long and pricy: Kona Blue Mountain coffee from Hawaii for the chocolate buttercream, with sea salt from Carmargue, France, organic cane sugar plus Valhrona cocoa powder and Tahitian vanilla beans.

Rich food is rich.

That noted, would it have killed the people who put this together to.. I don't know... include a picture of the 900 dollar cupcake, FFS?

Cupcake?

$900.

An article without pic of said cupcake?

Worthless.

I can't imagine being married to someone who wouldn't be disgusted at the idea of a $900 cupcake.

Ten minutes later, their five-year-old daughter picks up the cupcake and feeds it to the dog.

Did a midget stripper jump out of it?

I once made a $2,000,000 pie... lost the picture though...

For $900, it had better increase my virility or give me the power of flight-preferably both-seconds after ingestion. Otherwise, what's the point?

And I bet that if we asked them to close their eyes, and we switched out the $900 cupcakes for 90cent cupcakes, no one could tell the difference....

I think the $500 cupcakes taste just as good, so that's what I buy.
 
2014-08-02 01:12:12 PM  
At least it wasn't a food item where 99% of the cost was some gold and diamond bauble they attached to it in order to make it expensive.
 
2014-08-02 01:17:53 PM  
We had to go all the way.
All the way home.
With $900 worth of wedding cake.

That would involve paying someone to take a picture of it.  We would rather give you a stock photo of a cupcake and you can imagine that it costs $900. Sun News Media is a cheap ass newspaper - most online stories i've found all have stock photos.

Came here to be mildly outraged at the latest insanity of the "cupcake store" cottage industry hipster nonsense.

Saw it was the customer who was idiotic and not the cake store.

Not sure how to feel... If you wanna piss $1000 down the drain on what should be a $3 confection, go a head I guess...

Forget cupcakes.  I'll never understand how a bottle of alcohol could be worth the crazy sums I hear about.  $5000 bottle of scotch.  $1000 bottle of wine.

What's the point?  All wine tastes "grapey".  All liquor tastes "like alcohol".  There can't be that much of a difference, can there?
 
2014-08-02 01:53:18 PM  
So who the fark leaks this shiat to the press?

The customer?

Hi, is this the Sun?  I just bought my wife a $900 cupcake.  Really?  Tell us all about it.

The cupcake shop?

They should keep their customer's orders confidential,

But for Sanguedolce -- of the famed Le Dolci Cupcakes and Cakes pastry shop in Toronto's west-end

Yeah - this is totally not an advertisement and a publicity stunt on their part especially considering the lack of a picture of the finished product.

Was it just the one cupcake?

I cant see anyone making just ONE cupcake. The batter is not something that scales down all that well. Now... if it was 900 bucks for a dozen of these fancy cupcakes then i could understand.

But ONE cupcake? That seems crazy to me. Who the fark makes ONE cupcake?

Thosw: At least it wasn't a food item where 99% of the cost was some gold and diamond bauble they attached to it in order to make it expensive.


FTAThe cupcake sat in an edible chocolate cup which was hand-made with a gold transfer sheet. It was garnished with crunchy pearls and dusted with 24-karat gold flakes.

Are "crunchy pearls" not actual pearls?  What are they?  Do you eat them?  And did someone eat the gold transfer sheet?

Well, you see, wasting money was really the entire point so.... why not just go ahead and throw away the batter and extra ingredients?  Just so that one cupcake can be unique.

Uh, there is a huge difference between $20 alcohol and $5000 alcohol. Like $4980 difference.

For $900, it had better come with a supermodel to give me a BJ while I'm eating it.

So they made a cupcake with light, delicate flavors like expensive champagne and honey and then topped it with coffee/chocolate frosting?  It probably tasted fine but was a complete waste of money.  I'll bet the baker was laughing all the way to the bank.

Why...why can't I have that kind of money?  I wouldn't spend it on poorly conceived cupcakes!
 
2014-08-02 03:43:42 PM  
It doesn't even sound very good, and a ton of the expense was on the inedible garnishes.
 
2014-08-02 03:51:11 PM  
If you spend $900 on a birthday cupcake, you shouldn't be allowed to have any more birthdays. Above ground, anyway.

Nope, the bottle of brandy it's from is ~$300. I don't know how they determined pricing on the actual cupcake.
