A $2,600 Proposal Cake?
Figuring out how to propose can be just as nerve racking as deciding on an engagement ring and determining when to propose, and an entrepreneur is trying to make the proposal just as special as the ring itself. Angelito Araneta Jr. has created a chocolate cake covered in 24-karat gold leaves and topped with 15 African diamonds. He plans to sell these $2,558 cakes to men who are about to pop the question. Umm, I love chocolate and luxury as much as the next gal, but this is too much. I’d prefer my boyfriend add that extra $2,600 to the cost of my engagement ring. Or better yet, take me on a trip to the Caribbean and and then ask for my hand. I think my rock would go just as well with a Bahama Mama as it would with cake, but hopefully he won’t propose on the Booze Cruise. Actually, I’d admire my future husband even more if he put that money towards a down payment on our love nest. Now, forget the ridiculous price and think about the potential injuries. Gold leaf is edible, but diamonds are the hardest substance on this planet, and probably shouln’t be chewed. Even if these aren’t conflict diamonds, they’ll literally be blood diamonds. [Reuters]
