Save room for dessert

Leave it to those Sri Lankans to whip up a dessert worth $14,500. According to Sri Lanka's national newspaper, the dessert, which features gold leaf, Irish cream, mango and pomegranate compote and an 80-carat aquamarine stone sitting atop a chocolate fisherman, is being served at The Fortress Sri Lanka, an award winning resort.

Just for reference, here's a small sampling of what $14,500 can get you:

- A burger, fries, and a soda from McDonald's dollar menu, every day, for over 13 years
- 60 meals at the French Laundry
- 58,000 beers during quarter beers at Asylum in Adam's Morgan

So let me ask you - is this decadent dessert worth it?
