It doesn't get much better than this. Two of my favorite things in one....diamonds and a cupcake! And they are real! Mervis Diamond Importers created the one and only diamond cupcake. As they suggested, I even Googled it to check for myself and they were right! There are 8 ideal cut round brilliant diamonds on top of the cupcake and a 2 carat Asscher cut diamond smack dab in the middle of all the pink and sweet yumminess. Jonathan Mervis said he decided to create the diamond cupcake "Firstly, I'm having fun. But secondly, I'm in the business of helping make engagements and weddings as stunning and memorable as possible. On the big wedding day when money is no object, I think a diamond-topped cupcake could be the ultimate in luxury. I've already had a few phone calls inquiring about more "affordable" diamond cupcakes, and I could foresee a situation where diamond cupcakes become the 'it' thing for brides. When so many Americans are in the poor house, can it be healthy to dream for a moment and let our minds play with images of decadent diamond cupcakes?" Do you stay up at night wondering how much something like this costs? Thought so. The price tag on the diamond is $30,000 which is the budget of most weddings! I would love to see the wedding of the bride that decides she wants the pink confection for her wedding day and then donates the cupcake to a deserving charity.
