THE MOST LUXURIOUS GOLD-PLATED DISHES IN THE WORLD
One of the crazy things about Dubai is that gold is seen everywhere. Supercars are gold-plated, the interior is covered with gold and even the dishes are also sprinkled with gold. This surprised the whole world, while the rich in Dubai said that it was a very normal thing. They always have an interest in using gold to decorate the dishes to show off their luxury and power.
The most expensive cake in the world is the Golden Phoenix cupcake. It is not a normal pastry. The ingredients must be imported from England, Italy and especially, the cake is covered with a layer of gold on the outside. To be able to enjoy this luxury cake, the elite in Dubai are willing to spend up to $28,000.
The best things in Dubai will make you speechless because they are too expensive. Dubai is one of the most attractive destinations in the world because there are not only supercars, skyscrapers but also countless crazy things that you need to explore.
