$130,000 Cake, Just Don't Eat the Decorations

$130,000 Cake, Just Don't Eat the Decorations

If you think wedding cakes are expensive, you should try comparing them to this Platinum Cake by Japanese pastry chef Nobue Ikara. Draped in platinum necklaces, pendants and pins, this white cake is worth over $130,000.

The cake itself is dedicated to several famous Japanese women, including actress Rinko Kikuchi (from Babel) and model Chie Kumasawa and was commissioned in order to entice women to buy more platinum jewelry.

Mikiko Ichikawa, of the Platinum Guild, said: "I think platinum and a white cake is the best possible combination as a present for women because both have the same colour of white, which is said to have pureness and brightness that lasts forever."

What do you think? Does it make you want to buy more platinum?

Yeah, this is stupid. Anyone can bake a cake and drape jewelry on it. There's nothing special about this other than the price. But yeah, I want some cake, too. :)

if you take all those pointless necklaces off of it, it's a cake that is probably like only a 100 bucks then haha

I already like platinum over gold. But since I can't afford either, I would really just rather have the cake. Chocolate instead please...

This idea is stupid and won't work. The only way to get women to buy more platinum is to find more sources for platinum so it won't be so expensive. Platinum is often times twice the price of gold and even more rare to find excluding wedding and engagment rings. That is why alot of women ( including myself ) have platinum wedding sets but find it uneccesary to have other jewelry in platinum especially diamonds and precious gems.

I like platinum, but the white against the platinum makes all the jewelry look so dull and ugly.

very 20's flapper, which i usually like but this cake is one big mess. i'm not a fan of fondant, either, after watching the Ace of Cakes... those people are forever all up in those cakes with their faces and constantly touching them with their hands. i might trust the bald guy to do one, but still YUCK!! does platinum really need advertising??

I hate food that is covered in inedible decorations. You have to destroy the look of the cake to take all of that crap off (okay, platinum jewelry isn't crap, but you catch my drift).
