One scoop from Baskin' Robbins is for peasants! Banana split? Not decadent enough? Well how about an ice cream with EDIBLE DIAMONDS?!
You read that correctly!
London’s Selfridge’s department store has launched “The Billionaire” ice cream cone this week, and it lets customers literally eat diamonds.
This ice cream cone is nearly one pound of ice cream and toppings, all nestled in a crisp waffle cone.
The made-to-order treat is designed by luxury ice cream producer Snowflake Gelato and costs $127 – making it the most expensive ice cream in London!
£99 Soft Serve, 'The Billionaire'! Made with Persian blue salted caramel gelato, a hand prepared cone dipped in rare 75% criollo cocoa single planation Madagascan dark chocolate, gelato spheres of mango, ginger and passion fruit, caramelised pecans, a Belgian white chocolate truffle filled with salted caramel sauce, a raspberry sorbetto macaroon decorated with white chocolate glaze and edible diamonds. It's coated in 24 carat gold leaf, served with a gold flake... Do we need to go on? #snowflakegelato #snowflake #luxury #selfridges #billionaire #bling
What makes the ice cream so expensive isn’t the creamy salted caramel gelato or handmade cone dipped in rare criollo Madagascan dark chocolate, which makes up the base of the dessert. It’s all the toppings that go with it: gelato spheres of mango, ginger and passion fruit, caramelized pecans, a Belgian white chocolate truffle filled with salted caramel sauce, and a raspberry sorbet macaroon topped with a white chocolate glaze.
But what really pushes the cone over the edge is the edible diamonds placed delicately on the macaroon and the 24-carat edible gold leaf, and gold flake that adorn the top of the ice cream like a neat little crown.
