Forget the marriage choclate!

Whilst getting carried away on my hunt for a recipe for an "economical" chocolate cake recipe I stumbled upon.....this... THE most expensive chocolate cake!
Businessman Angelito Araneta Jr, 21, commissioned his catering service to create a chocolate cake topped with 15 African diamonds and covered with 24-karat gold leaf.
Mr Araneta says he plans to sell the cake in Manila at 124,000 pesos ($13,480) to men for use as a marriage proposal gift.

A bit out of budget for me.... so I will settle for Gail's Outrageous Chocolate Cookies or her oozing warm chocolate cake pudding....mmmmm!
Gail's recipes are irresistible at her In all the ways blog.....Will let you know the results after the weekend!


  1. That cake looks amazing, but it's way out of my price range.

  2. hah. I wouldn't want to marry anyone who threw that amount of money into something I'm apparently supposed to eat. Though I guess I could pick out the diamonds and have them turned into a nice engagement ring...
