I totally agree TexasGirl.....

I hope whoever purchases this cake, has spent 1/2 as much to help the needy in his country....
Now that to me, would justify having that cake and eating it too....LOL

I wouldn't even want the cheaper version of that. Some things don't make any sense at all.

Why would someone spend that much on a cake?
But then again, my mom doesn't understand why people spend easily1.2 mil. for a brand new Bugatti.
