First time I've ever tried them. I had a white and a lemon. I used the white for the almond cake and it turned out really well. The lemon just came out of the oven. I doctored it too - a bit of sour cream, milk, 2 TBS oil (strange little mix doesn't call for oil on the box), lemon extract and lemon zest. I'm glad I picked them up. I thought they would be good because there are just the 2 of us at home. But they are great for "testing" purposes. I think they only come in yellow, white, lemon and chocolate and my store doesn't seem to carry the chocolate.
Good luck with yours! I'm going to cover these later today. I have to quit playing for now and get to work. I work out of my home as a massage therapist and I have clients coming.
Also, here is a suggestion - I cover the tops of my petit fours with marzipan (before I cut them into squares) I roll out marzipan the size of the cake I made and put it on top. It tastes delicious and helps to keep crumbs in order.
Thanks! I did cover the almond ones with marzipan and I do like that - gives it extra flavor and makes the tops so smooth! I'm thinking a thin layer of satin ice fondant over these lemon ones.
