Sure to grab attention, however, these finds are the ultimate in food and drink. Only a person with an obscene amount of money could spend so much on something as temporary as a cupcake, making it clear that these products are arguably more about social power than they are about quality or taste.

Beyond excessive but endlessly intriguing, these indulgent examples of food and drink are the ultimate in lavishness.
