When I first read that Nino Selimaj of NYC eatery Nino had made a $1M cake to present as a gift to Kim Kardashian I thought it had to be an exaggeration or misprint. But, it so happens it was true and that Nino was going to give a jewel encrusted cake worth $1M to Kim for her 30th birthday. That is insane. Not only because I can't figure out why he would do it, but because it is so wasteful. Yes, he would get publicity and more diners, but not a $1M worth of new diners. Plus, would you really want to give someone who is almost a complete stranger a $1M? Why?
To her credit, Kim actually made a decent statement about the situation. “This is the first I've heard about this. I would never allow anyone to spend that much money on a cake. Making a million dollar birthday cake is just ridiculous! I'd rather they give me a cupcake and donate the rest of the money to the homeless!”
For once, and probably the last time I have to say that I am in total agreement with Kim Kardashian. However, the cake is made, so Nino has decided to sell slices of it to his customers. What do you think each slice will sell for? $5000?
