This holiday season, we know there's going to be a good deal of marriage proposals. But not every gift has to begin with Kay. In fact, if you've got the dosh, and a few minutes for some Fantasy Friday dreaming, we've got a sweet little tidbit to share.

Salvatore Martone, the Executive Pastry Chef at the Four Seasons New York, has created a decadent “$20,000 dessert” that highlights a sparkling diamond from Leviev, one of the world's largest privately held diamond polishers and cutters.

So if you're thinking of asking for her hand in marriage, here's one way to do it!

The dessert is an actual edible decorated box, filled with a chocolate mousse and fondant cake accented with Leviev's signature pink bow. Sitting atop the cake is a handcrafted ring box containing an intricately designed spun sugar diamond. Yes, you can eat it--the real one (a one and a half carat round brilliant-cut stunner) is waiting to be purchased at the Leviev boutique near the hotel.

Guests who order the dessert will receive a certificate of celebration and can schedule an appointment at the jeweler to design the setting for the diamond.

Love the sparkle, but your wallet doesn't shine quite that brightly? The dessert will be on display at the Four Seasons' TY Lounge for the entire month of December.
