It’s so tough to say NO to desserts, however, how much you paid for the dessert you had last time while dining at some five star hotel? A few hundred dollars, right? Now, Forbes Traveler has compiled a list of the most expensive desserts in the world and topping the list is The Fortress Aquamarine, which is served at a restaurant in Sri Lanka for a whopping price of $14,500. Inspired by another gem-studded treat, the Bombay Sapphire Martini, the Fortress Aquamarine depicts an 80-carat aquamarine gem that sits on a sliver of chocolate shaped to look like the traditional stilt fisherman. The presentation comes complete with the handmade glass utensils. After you have gobbled the dessert, you can put the gemstone in your pocket. Till now, not even a single piece has been sold.
