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*

How The Cavs Lavishly Celebrated Their First Championship Victory

For the seven people in the world that might not know, the Cleveland Cavaliers came back from a 3-1 deficit in the championship series against last year’s victors, the Golden State Warriors. After winning three games in a row to beat the Warriors 4-3, the Cavaliers knew they were about to party their freaking faces off, especially since this is the first NBA championship ever to be won in Cleveland.

The team decided to stop off in Vegas on the way home for their celebrations, and boy were they glad they did. The popular Vegas club XS (located at the Wynn) was hosting them and had the entire club prepped and prepared for their arrival.

The team walked into the club and that’s when shit started getting cray.

Kevin Love definitely got his party on with his teammates when he got to XS, although he had no problem getting it started early in the locker room.

The fun doesn’t stop there. Even before the team headed out to Vegas to really get their party on, they all began popping bottles and splashing each other as soon as they got to the locker room.

When they got to Vegas, the staff at the Wynn made sure to pull out all the stops for the champs. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the team was presented with 350 bottles of Moet & Chandon Nectar Rosé that were emblazoned with the team’s logo, along with Moet & Chandon paying homage to the state of Ohio with a specialized crest.

Each bottle has a crystallized version of the Cavs logo stamped on the front. The retail price of the entire order comes out to $21,000, although XS was/is selling them for $5,000 a bottle. Basically, if all 350 bottles were sold already, the club will be making $1.75 million.

Looks like the employees at the Wynn Hotel are the real winners here.
