Why pay rent when you can head Baccarat Hotel New York for the most expensive ice-cream in America.
According to CNBC, the dish is made with vanilla ice cream from vanilla bean imported from Madagascar. The rest of the sundae is constructed with a white chocolate shell painted with dyed cocoa butter, black truffle crumble, Manjari dark chocolate, and Valrhona Gold cocoa nibs. Hibiscus champagne sauce with citrus meringue is drizzled on top. The butterflies you can see below are made from fondant, the gold hair is made from sugar strands. Don’t forget the gold and silver leafing.

Here is the catch, the actual sundae costs $300, which compared to the full price version is a good bargain. For an extra $1,200 the dish is served in a Baccarat “Zoo Bear” crystal bowl, which you get to keep.
The sundae debuted last week under the name “Bear Extraordinaire,” and according to the chef who created it, it’s the most expensive ice cream dish you can get in the U.S. right now.
CNBC claim the dessert is tasty, but we think it looks like a mess. Is $1,500 worth it for bragging rights and a bowl? It depends on your bank account.
