Rare White Pineapples Are Used For This Ultra Decadent Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Let it be known, Las Vegas is a town fit for the biggest sweet tooth. For affirmation, one can start at Lakeside, inside the Wynn Resort. There, two ultra decadent desserts help define the overall Vegas vibe of supreme indulgence: a pineapple upside down cake using extremely rare Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapples and a wild sundae called the Cherry On Top.

For the high-end pineapple upside down cake, rare Kauai Sugarloaf Pineapples are the it factor, as they’re known for their distinct white flesh, sweeter flavor profile and exclusivity to the island of Kauai. The result is a pineapple upside down cake worth all its weight in treat yo self.

The Cherry On Top is another choice worthy of a roster spot on Team What Diet. Delicious deets dive into a yummy sundae topped with a giant “cherry” that is a molded sphere made of 70% Valrhona chocolate. It is then sprayed with red cocoa butter and filled to the brim with a mixed berry coulis, fresh berries, and whipped cream. Use a small mallet to crack it open to reveal all the goodness inside!

So which dessert are you choosing to dive into? How about both! *non-problematic Kanye shrug*

Wagyu and Kobe beef have the reputation for being the pinnacle of high quality steaks. With price points that range from $300 to $600 per pound, it’s considered to be one of the finest delicacies in the culinary world. However, the price alone only tells half the story of why it is so highly lauded and sought after.

To learn all about Wagyu and Kobe beef, we went to the SW Steakhouse at the celebrated Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, NV. Chef David Walzog was gracious enough to break down all things Wagyu and Kobe beef, dropping knowledge on its origins and also what goes into preparing and cooking the revered beef.

So sit back and tuck your napkins, the dinner setting is about to get decadent, as we go in and taste the details of Wagyu and Kobe beef.
