Las Vegas is well known as the home of everything over the top. So it might not surprise you that it's the place where a cupcake priced at $750 is yours for the taking. Yep.
If you're in the market to burn through the equivalent of a few car payments -- or even a mortgage payment some places around the country -- you can scoop up the "Decadence D'Or" cupcake at the famous Las Vegas Strip's Palazzo resort.
Let that sink in: A $750 cupcake actually exists.
What on earth could make a cupcake cost so much? Well, it uses chocolate derived from an exceedingly rare Venezuelan bean, it's topped with Tahitian Gold Vanilla Caviar, billed as the world’s most labor-intensive agricultural crop and it contains century-old Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac and edible gold flakes. All this luxe goodness is packaged up in seriously rich-looking hand-blown sugar fleur-de-lis.
