What Recession?

While the trend of ultra-gourmet versions of simple comfort foods seems so very 2000's, a bakery in Las Vegas just introduced a $750 cupcake. Among other ingredients, the "Decadence D’Or" is packed with fine Venezuelan chocolate, caviar, and Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac. One critic notes that you could go down the road and get Joel Robuchon's 13-course Menu Degustation for two for the same price as one of the sweets. [LV Weekly]
