  The Phoenix was unveiled at the cupcake franchise Bloomsbury's at the Dubai Mall

  The Guinness world record for the largest cupcake weighs 1,176.6 kg (2,594 lb) and was achieved by Georgetown Cupcake (USA) at Georgetown Cupcake's national shipping headquarters in Sterling, Virginia, USA.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most expensive dessert, set by The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae; costing $25,000 (£12,000), it was added to the menu of the Serendipity 3 restaurant, New York, USA.

  The concept of Bloomsbury's was created by Shafeena Yusuff Ali, daughter of Yusuff Ali MA, Chairman of the EMKE group, which also owns and operated the Lulu chain of hypermarkets and supermarkets in the Gulf region.
  
  After several months of speculation by avid food bloggers, the bakers rolled out the most expensive 'edible' cupcake, The Golden Phoenix on an Italian, Villari 24 carat gold plated Maria Antoinette Princess Tea Trolley and presented on 24 carat gold painted Empire Morning Cake Stand with Cloch.

  Vinay Lall, General Manager of Tablez Food Company, owners of the Bloomsbury's franchise in Dubai, said: "We have seen people attempt the most expensive cupcakes before, however those cupcakes are not edible as they are encrusted with diamonds and other components."

  "That is why we decided that we would take the realistic approach and present the most expensive 'edible' cupcake in the world using the real meaning of the words 'let them eat cake'."

  Ali spent weeks perfecting the taste of the recipe and décor of the cupcake and finalised the five expensive ingredients.

  The ingredients used were Doves organic flour from the United Kingdom, Rachels organic butter from the United Kingdom, Premium Amedei Porcelena cocoa from Italy, Gold Ugandan high quality vanilla beans and 23 carat edible gold sheets.

  Ali said: "Our aim is to redefine the cupcakes in the Gulf, why can't a cupcake taste as good as it looks and look as good as it tastes".

  Bloomsbury's opened its first boutique café in June 2011 at the Al Wahda Mall, Abu Dhabi followed by their second store at Mushriff Mall, selling a record 225,013 cupcakes in just under a year.
