Heston Blumenthal: The Most Expensive Christmas Cake Ever!

published by DAN MCHARDY on Dec 18, 2010

While I was mindlessly searching through the masses of junk pages of Ebay, I stumbled upon something which deeply caught my attention! I saw right there in bold an immense £10,000 pounds for a Christmas cake! But why is it so expensive?

So here is the picture of this cake, and if you want to see the proof of the price here’s the link!Item imageImage credit.(Proof of price.)

So as you can see the box looks pretty posh doesn’t it!? Especially for the most extravagant Christmas cake in the world today! However just weeks ago I remember walking into waitrose, and seeing this particular product at a measly £14! Never mind blooming £1,000! I mean what are the chances of that kind of thing going up from £14 to £1,000 huh? Actually quite high… I’ll explain in the next paragraph. 

Now I think just about every English person knows about Heston Blumenthal. So obviously his products are going to be valuable. However when his products like this pudding have a rarity to them, the price sky rockets meaning the people who bought this item want to sell it for millions of gold. That’s precisely how this phenomenon occurred, which has ultimately made, a lot of poor people very happy indeed! Did you buy one of these products while they were cheap? Well if you did now is the time to sell, and if you did happen to buy one of these please comment below thanks!

Oh and in case you didn’t, please leave a comment anyway telling me whether you like Christmas pudding or not! Also like this post, as well as like it on Facebook!
