For National Ice Cream Month, legendary New York City ice cream parlor to the stars and general store Serendipity 3 is celebrating with their incredible Guinness World Record dessert – The $1,000.00 Golden Opulence Sundae – the world’s most decadent ice cream creation.
Serendipity 3 continues to be in the forefront of ice cream creations from the Outrageous Banana Split to its $1000 edible work of art, which must be ordered at least 48 hours in advance.
The Golden Opulence Sundae consists of 3 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla beans, and covered in 23K edible gold, placed in a Baccarat crystal goblet (that you get to take home with you) and drizzled with the world’s most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porcelana and the rarest, Amedei Chuao chocolate, which is made from cocoa beans that are harvested from an island off the coast of Venezuela.
The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruit from Paris, gold dragets, chocolate truffles from Switzerland and topped with a gold plated sugar orchid. A tiny bowl of Grande Passion caviar, salt-free and infused with passion fruit and Armagnac, accompanies the sundae. An 18K gold spoon is used to partake in this incredible indulgence.
Serendipity 3 has been enchanting millions of patrons since 1954. Beginning with Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in the 1950’s to the newest crop of hot young celebrities such as Beyonce, Blake Lively, Selena Gomez and Kim Kardashian, Serendipity 3 remains a must-visit destination.
The restaurant has been the setting of three major Hollywood films – One Fine Day with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer, Serendipity with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale, and Trust the Man with Julianne Moore and David Duchovny. Owner and founder, Stephen Bruce, continues to reinvent an outrageous whimsical world full of outrageous food, decadent desserts and outlandish merchandise, all located in a Tiffany-jeweled fantasy setting.
