Little Red Velvette, a Prince-inspired book of baked goods

Inspired by the Purple One himself, this cookbook is the work of Cat Food, a "super small, super busy, super tiny bakery" in South East London. Inside its pages you'll find Prince-ly recipes for Purple Rain ombre cakes, Raspberry Beret tarts, Darling Stikki toffee puddings, Most Beautiful Swirl in the World brownies, and more.

The book is available to preorder now for £9.00 from Belly Kids. It's set to ship in March.

I have to wonder though, as cute as this is, how long it will be before the Prince estate shuts it down?

The packaging features woodland pattern camouflage which I guess makes sense given the ice cream was launched on the first day of dove hunting season in texas. Yum?
