$1000 Sundae Puts a Ring on It, Literally

sundaemain_636_358_85_s_c1.jpg

We thought we’d seen it all with the $175 Richard Nouveau burgers, containing gold flakes and black truffles from the Wall Street Burger Shoppe in New York City and then again with the $1000 pizza, topped with six types of caviar, from Nino’s Bellissima, also in New York City. But no, we were wrong. There was still something more extravagant and more decadent to come.

Chef Sebastien Chamaret at swanky Meatpacking district restaurant Bagatelle, takes pricey menu items to a whole new level with the $1000 ice cream sundae.

The ‘Mauboussin Mega Sundae,’ also referred to by the restaurant as the ‘Jay-Z of desserts,’ costs $1,000 a pop. The over-the-top dessert consists of vanilla ice cream (that’s the normal bit), chocolate truffles, homemade macarons, Dom Perignon Rose sorbet (which costs around $300 a bottle) with gold leaves (yes, real gold) and chocolate vodka sauce, gilded brownies and fresh whipped cream. No big deal right?

The epic creation is served in a giant martini glass alongside a white gold steel Mauboussin ring made exclusively for Bagatelle.

Warning, if you are a sweet tooth, don’t go near this. Bankruptcy over ice cream sundaes is not good.

Chocolate & Cinnamon Cobbler

If I had to rank all the photos I’ve seen this year on their levels of beauty, I’m pretty sure this Chocolate & Cinnamon Cobbler shot would be in the running. Don’t you? I normally love to indulge in a warm cobbler, but chocolate and cinnamon flavors so often get overlooked when constructing these types of warm confections! Also not to be overlooked, this cobbler has a dash of coffee in it for an extra pick me up. The entire mound is topped with some vanilla ice cream for a nice contrast, both visually and texturally. (Thx MissInTheKitchen)

Kitchen Sink Funnel Cake

I called this bad boy the “Kitchen Sink Funnel Cake” for the sole fact that they put everything on this plate that wasn’t nailed down! It started out with a deep fried funnel cake, powdered sugar, vanilla ice cream, whip cream, fresh strawberries, fresh cherries, more whip cream, and drenched in chocolate syrup!  If you get the “Brick Of Fries” mix them with the funnel cake, pure mouth orgasm!

Craving: Pumpkin Pie Vanilla S'more

This scanwich is a mouth watering idea! Graham crackers, pumpkin pie filling, and vanilla ice cream! If this scanwich had a little drizzle of chocolate on it, I would probably make it my wife! (Thx SW)

Cravings: PopTarts Sprinkly Ice Cream Bites

What your looking at right now is basically two strawberry milkshake PopTarts sandwiching some vanilla ice cream and made a little more presentable with some rainbow sprinkles! There could be some awesome variations on this treat, for instance some chocolate fudge PopTarts with vanilla ice cream? Um…. DOWN!? (Thx TIWYF)

Sometimes sandwiches just don’t cut it and you have to scan a donut. Here we have a dark chocolate cake donut covered in vanilla bean ice-cream. Better get a good glass cleaner for that scanner of yours. (Thx Scanwiches)

Craving: Banana Splitwich

Banana bread, vanilla ice cream, actual banana, chocolate sauce dripping down the side of the structure with some whipped cream on top to seal the deal. If this doesn’t sound like a lunch for dessert, I don’t know what does. Or, a dessert for lunch. Either way. Either way. (PicThx Insanewiches)
