Debbie Wingham's initial fame over designing the world's most high-priced dress has now translated into fortune from the world's most expensive cake -- worth a whopping $75 million. Her couture experience is seen in the design of the cake -- a full fashion runway, complete with photographers made of fondant. The cake's "runway" is an incredible six feet long and is accented with 4,000 sparkling diamonds. The model walking the ritzy runway is wearing a gown that Wingham designed, while the onlookers in the front row are dressed to the nines with couture sunglasses, handbags and hats.

This expensive cake was designed for a high-end United Arab Emirate client to celebrate his daughter's birthday and engagement. The cake took 1,100 hours to complete and is as heavy as a grizzly bear, weighing 450 kilograms. With wealthy clients commissioning more customized cakes for lavish weddings, this is just the beginning for Wingham's 'Couture to Cakes' business.
