It’s the 63rd anniversary of Queen Elizabeth‘s coronation and less than two weeks until her "official summer birthday" on June 11, and one hotel has the perfect way to celebrate – if you’ve got a serious stash of extra cash!
The Windsor Court hotel in New Orleans, whose style was inspired by that of the real Windsor Castle – where the Queen celebrated her 90th birthday in May – is offering a special “birthday dessert” honoring the Queen. Cost: $90,000.
Created by Pastry Chef Shun Li, the dessert is a 24-karat gold-encrusted dark chocolate cake with a Cristal Champagne fruit sauce of raspberry and passion fruit. It is decorated with gold-covered strawberries and a gold dusted-chocolate crunch.

But the real treat is the cherry on top: a 3.95-carat ruby oval surrounded by 1.95 carats of diamonds set in 18-karat white gold from M.S. Rau Antiques.
What Did Queen Elizabeth II Do for the First Time in 63 Years?
(And yes, if someone else “orders” the dessert first, they have more!)
In case that’s not quite indulgent enough, the hotel is also offering a “Queen’s Royal Birthday Package” for $119,260, which includes three nights in the penthouse suite, afternoon royal tea, spa pampering, the $90,000 dessert and more.
