A cookbook inspired by Prince is now available for preorder. Little Red Velvette will be available starting April 21.
The book by Cat Food Bakery will serve as a tribute to the late singer, whose second death anniversary is on April 21. Little Red Velvette features several references to Prince's music like a Purple Rain ombre cake, and Raspberry Beret tarts.
In 1984, Prince released his album Purple Rain, and the compilation featured the songs "Let's Go Crazy," "Take Me With U," "The Beautiful Ones," "Computer Blue," "Darling Nikki," "When Doves Cry," and more. One year later, Prince released the song "Raspberry Beret," which is included in his Around the World in a Day album.
The cover art for Little Red Velvette shows an animated version of Prince wearing his signature purple and white ensemble. He is holding a tray filled with pastries such as muffins, strawberry shortcake, brownies, and more.

Who Is Prince?
Prince was an American singer-songwriter from Chanhassen, Minnesota. Toxicology reports revealed that he died of an opioid overdose at the age of 57. A report from the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that Prince died of an accidental fentanyl overdose.
L. Londell McMillan, Prince's lawyer, said that he spoke to his client days before his death, and he was doing well. McMillan also said that Prince was not on any drugs that would have been any cause for concern at that time.
