This is what a wedding cake for some Kazakh one percenters looked like

Reportedly costing $179K, this elaborate cake wowed guests at a wedding Sunday in Kazakhstan. Styled like a castle, the one-ton cake featured many moving parts including a small horse-drawn carriage that brought small representations of the wedding couple to the front door of the castle. From there, the figurines were whisked up to a balcony near the top of the cake.

Watch for yourself:

Добро пожаловать в НАШ СЛАДКИЙ МИР 😎✌️❤️

AKIPress named the bride and groom and their social status:

The groom Amirzhan is grandson of a Shymkent oligarch Serikzhan Seitzhanov, bride Aruzhan is daughter of Kairat Satybaldy, a Kazakh businessman, nephew of the president of Kazakhstan.

Interestingly, the impressive cake was crafted by Renat Agzamov (shown below), a former Russian boxing champion turned pastry chef.

Реализовали сложнейший международный проект🔥 диаметр торта 3 метра, высота 4,2 ( с тележкой) . Вес около 1500кг. С такими размерами доставить заготовки в другую страну - это ОЧЕНЬ сложно ! Но мы справились, потому что у нас самая сильная команда профессионалов в мире!🔥🔥🔥 Перед вывозом торта в зал - ровно 3 суток без сна, но результат того стоит! Благодарю свою команду за мощный рывок в космос 🚀 Просто ценю и уважаю каждого😘❤️. Благодарю принимающую сторону за очень тёплый и душевный прием🙏! Как приятно работать, когда тебя любят, ценят и уважают😘❤️. Ну и самое главное - счастья молодым и благополучия 🙏🙏❤️.

There's a Louis Vuitton ping pong set and it's still cheaper than that Tiffany's ball of yarn

The 1% do things a little differently from us. Take, for instance, playing ping pong.

Now, your average, run-of-the-mill ping pong set will set you back about $22. But let's be real, no self-respecting one-percenter is going to show up to play table tennis with that. Thankfully, the good folks at Louis Vuitton have come up with a solution: the $2,210 jaunty AF ping pong set.

Still, it's a bargain compared to that $9K silver ball of yarn from Tiffany's.

Thanks, Sam! Read the rest

Trump's chief Goldman-Sachs goblin tells America they can buy a new car for $1000

Gary Cohn is Trump's chief economic advisor. He's a former Goldman-Sachs banker with a net worth of more than $250,000,000. In his latest appearance, the quarter-billionaire explained to the press that Trump's tax-plan (which will transfer billions to the wealthiest 1%, e.g., Gary Cohn) will save two-child families earning $100,000/year about $1,000 and that they can use this money to buy "a new car."
