Musician and more recently artist, Pharrell Williams was recently on the cover of Modern Painters. Inside, the article discussed some of Pharrell’s latest works of art including a line of chairs. More importantly to all cupcake fans is the cupcake he created. The cupcake is part of a series which features items that Williams views as underrated essentials. The cupcake is made out of 18k white gold and 5,218 stones, including 32.61 ct. cognac diamonds, 15.39 ct. brown diamonds, and 44.5 ct. white diamond. The piece of art stands 2¼ inches high and is 3 inches in diameter. The best part is in a vernissage interview Williams is claims “the irony and the twist of it, the poetry of the project is that no matter how good that looks to people, for me, the taste of cupcakes is worth far more than diamonds could ever be.”
