Bon Appétit and a Book: A delicious recipe to enjoy alongside the book with an image.
In the opening scene of His Ballerina Bride, Artem Drake, our diamond-heir CEO hero, busts heroine Ophelia Rose for eating a petit four in the Drake Diamonds kitchen when she should be working on the sales floor. Petit fours are tiny decorative cakes that almost look too pretty to eat, but I learned how to make them at a cooking class at Central Market Cooking School a while back and they’re actually very easy to bake and decorate. The petit fours in His Ballerina Bride are decorated to look like Drake Diamonds’ famous blue boxes. Can you tell which real-life jewelry store was the inspiration for Drake Diamonds?

The Rose Bakes blog has a super easy recipe for petit fours, complete with video tutorials (!!!) here: http://rosebakes.com/how-to-make-perfect-petit-fours-recipe-tutorial/
To make your petit fours look like Drake blue boxes, simply tint your icing with food coloring, then pipe on some white icing ribbons. Voilá! Just don’t let Artem Drake catch you eating them!

- The Ultimate Pas de DeuxA Page Six Exclusive Report Debonair Artem Drake has had tongues wagging all over New York since he became surprise CEO of Drake Diamonds. This playboy hopes to bring new life to the storied old business before those rumored bad investments sink the family ship. He’s even plucked an ambitious salesgirl out of the shadows to become the store’s new star designer. But Ophelia Rose isn’t the ingenue she seems. The swanlike beauty’s hiding a past that glimmers as bright as a Drake diamond—she once graced the stage as a professional ballerina…until she was forced to take her final curtsy and hide from the limelight. Now can Artem bring her back to center stage? Or will their glittering future together wither under the secrets of the past?
