Alright, this is only one grainy image of the $20 million wedding cake created by Mimi So Jewelers and cake designer Nahid La Patisserie Artistique. It may be truly beautiful in real life. But is anyone else not impressed?
The convection (billed as the most expensive cake ever) is inedible, as it is coated in far too many diamonds for the average cake-lover to diligently pick them out and push them to the side of the plate. And while it may be the main attraction at Beverly Hills’ luxury brands bridal show “Weddings in the Grand Tradition,” I think it looks kind of like the bottom of an old dress with plastic flowers glued on. Oh, and some gems scattered here and there.
I much prefer the less expensive $1.6 million fruitcake that was part of a Japanese exhibit called “Diamonds: Nature’s Miracle.” It featured only 223 diamonds on its fondant icing outer layer and was labeled edible by its creator.
UPDATE: There is a pic of the full $20 million wedding cake at Luxurylaunches.com. And it’s still ugly!
