Diamonds Are a Cake's Best Friend

Diamonds Are a Cake's Best Friend

Not to be outdone by all of our American holiday extravagances, the Takashimaya Department Store (in Central Tokyo) has unveiled a diamond-studded chocolate Christmas cake! The cake, worth approximately 850,000 dollars, is less expensive than last year's (a marzipan-coated fruitcake coated with a total of 223 diamonds) 1.7 million dollar creation, but looks even more tasty.

The 35 centimeter (14 inch) high cake with a square chocolate base is iced with some 100 diamonds totaling about 50 carats.

"The patisserie who made it said he felt that chocolate and diamonds are what a woman most wants to receive," said [spokeswoman Kiyome] Nagai.

The cake will remain on display until Dec. 25 even if it is sold.

Although I'm not sure who would want to eat it after the 25th. After all I'm sure it will be more than a little stale by then.

Note: The pink cake is last year's cake. The chocolate one is this year's.
