I want a Golden Opulence Sundae . . .

. . . Well, Not really. I do like ice cream, and I love chocolate, but I could do a lot of good with $1000.
Leave it to Serendipity in NYC to make just such a thing... a $1000 sundae.
Here is how it is described: "5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla and covered in 23K edible gold leaf, the sundae is drizzled with the world's most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela's coast. The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It's sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the indulgence served with a petite mother of pearl spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel."
Wow, that sounds good, but I think I'll stick to a good, hot chocolate chip cookie covered with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce, thank you.
