And the most expensive food in the world is a Diamond Christmas Cake from Tokyo!

You read it right. This cake is worth $1.72 million. Jeong Hong-yong, a sweets chef, designed and developed this cake for six months. Then, it took him one month to make it.

So, what is inside this super expensive food? It is basically a double-layer, marzipan-coated fruitcake. While other chefs dress their cake with fondant or icing, chef Jeong used diamonds. He used 223 diamonds, to be exact. With a total of 173 carats, these diamonds are definitely the reason behind this cake’s staggering price.

The Diamond Christmas Cake was displayed in an exhibit called Diamond: Nature’s Miracle. It was at Takashimaya Department Store back in 2005.

I bet there are many other food which didn’t make it to this list. Expect more and more gastronomical inventions to come in the future that will blow your mind with the sensational price!
