$74 Million Dollar Cake… This one is hard to top!

I recently came across an article which blew my mind… Someone spent $74 million dollars on his daughter’s engagement party cake… British dress designer turned cake-maker, Debbie Wingham stumbled across the opportunity when a client picking up a dress order stumbled across her ‘hobby’.   The 6 foot long cake which replicated a detailed cat walk, with edible models, designer accessories and photographer, included a 5.2 carat pink diamond, a 6.4 carat yellow diamond and a total of 15 individual 5 carat white diamonds.  Took over 1000 hours to make and weighed over 900 lbs. Now that’s a cake that’s hard to top!

A Portable Private Island? Christie’s says YES

I’m still trying to understand how this works.. According to a recent article I came across, Christie’s International Real Estate and its partner Dutch Docklands have taken ‘Private Island Living‘ to the next level.  According to Forbes Magazine,  “Amillarah Private Islands has created unique tailor-made floating residences designed by famed Dutch architect Koen Olthius.”  Not only will these islands be self-sustainable, eco-friendly and free from environmental impact, but you can take it wherever you want to create your own private paradise…  Customize your island and take it to… Miami? Maldives? Dubai? New York?

Even if I could afford it, not sure it would be my cup of tea…I prefer the ‘real thing’,  but no question this ‘over the top experience’ may be just the thing for some who have experienced just about everything…. Click here to read the article
