(Relaxnews) – Some husbands give their wives flowers and jewelry for their birthday. Others commission local bakers to come up with the most extravagant cupcake possible and are willing to part with $900 for it.

That’s what happened in Toronto recently, when Lisa Sanguedolce of Le Dolci bakery was approached by a man to create an over-the-top dessert to celebrate his wife’s 40th birthday.

After a few days of brainstorming, the pastry team came up with a concoction made with some of the most expensive ingredients in the world, including Krug Collection Brut champagne, 24-karat gold leaves, and a limited edition Courvoisier.

“We usually get custom-sculpted cake requests from our wealthy clientele, like a cake in the shape of a grand piano, Corvette or the birthday boy’s Porsche but this is the first time we had a customer request to make an extravagant cupcake for his wife’s 40th birthday,” wrote Sanguedolce in an email to Relaxnews.

If you also love your wife (or husband) some $900-worth of chocolate and vanilla, Le Dolci will make the cupcake via special order.

Here’s the full list of ingredients:

-Kona Blue Mountain coffee

-sea salt from Camargue, France

-organic cane sugar

-Valrhona cocoa powder

-Tahitian vanilla beans

-pastry cream made with Krug Collection Brut champagne

-Rosewood Estate honey

-Normandy butter

-Amadei Italian chocolate

-24-karat gold dust and leaves

-a limited edition Courvoisier
