Not content with just any old Fruit Cake? How about one worth US$1.65m, encrusted with 223 small diamonds? It's apparently edible too, with the diamonds taken out of course ;)


TOKYO - Could this be the ultimate Christmas treat? A diamond Christmas cake is going on display Friday in Japan. It's one of 17 diamond-related designs in an exhibit called "Diamonds: Nature's Miracle." The Tokyo pastry chef who created the work of art said it took six months to develop the design and one month to actually make the cake.


The fruit cake itself is edible -- apart from the 223 small diamonds on it.

And it could be yours. It goes on sale at Christmas.

The asking price? $1.65 million.
