My Petit Four Instructions - Page 2

Yes you can use other flavorings besides almond extract, however almond is the traditional petit four flavor, so people may expect it.

I do torte the 2 inch cakes. I cut the cakes in half first so they are easier to handle when torting. You could cut them down to quarters if it makes it even easier for you.

Also I have been expermenting at my house with petit fours and bought some really inexpensive petit four cutters. They make a really pretty presentation. I also recently decided to try to cover them in MMF. They turned out really cute, but very time consuming. However a lot less clean up than the poured fondant. Heres a pic of how they turned out.

BTW-

You can ship these pretty successfully. I have shipped them once. I placed each in a candy cup or mini muffin liner. Pack very tightly into a canister or air tight container, I used a disposable tupperware that you get in the suppermarket. Fill in any empty areas with bubble wrap so that the petit fours don't shift at all when shaken. Place 1 or 2 layers of bubble wrap on top of petit fours and place lid on careful not to pack too tightly or you will damage the decorations on top of the petit fours. Just make sure that the petit fours are not going to move around much when shaken. The ones I sent made it without any damage. Good Luck!

EuphoriaBakery - where did you get the cute cutters?

And what do you use for fillings? Do you use different fillings between each layer of the petit four?

Thanks so much! I can't wait to try these. A friend of mine and I are planning to have a "petit four day" when school is out. We will definitely give these a try.
