ForbesTraveler lists the most expensive desserts in the world. The one above is called the â€œFortress Aquamarineâ€ and costs $14,500.
This dessert, which debuted in March, was inspired by the success of the restaurantâ€™s other gem-studded treat, the Bombay Sapphire Martini. The star of the show is an 80-carat aquamarine gem that rests on a sliver of chocolate shaped to resemble the traditional stilt fisherman thatâ€™s part of the resortâ€™s logo. Handmade glass utensils (not included in the price) complete the presentation. And yes, diners can pocket the gemstone after polishing off the dessert. None have yet been sold.
