This is the MOST EXPENSIVE CAKE IN THE WORLD! Well ok, not really, but my 24 Carrot Cake is definitely the most expensive LOOKING cake and it tastes like a million bucks, so I count that as close.
This particular edible gold leaf recipe,called “24 carrot cake”, prepared with 24 little carrots, has been, after the cooking, covered with a sugar fondant and then decorated with 23 kt edible gold leaf Giusto Manetti Battiloro.
This glittering gold-leaf number is ideal for showing mom just how many karats (or carrots?) she’s worth.
The cake looks exactly like a gold bar, except when you slice it, then it becomes a tasty treat.Check out the video to see the step-by-step process.
