Marshmallow Fondant and Petit Fours

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am making petit fours for my sister-in-laws baby shower and am having a difficult time figuring out a filling for them and what to ice them with. I was thinking of covering them with the marshmallow fondant that seems to be so popular among the cake decorators on this site. I was wondering how it tastes? I know how regular fondant tastes even with some flavoring added and that's not what I want. I would appreciate any help with some fillings and on how the MM fondant will do on petit fours.


Thanks,

I just made some last night, using the MM Fondant...........worked like a charm! ...and tasty too! It's very easy to smooth on the Petits fours and easy to get it to shape around the tight corners of the Petits Fours. I just use the strawberry or rasberry filling that CK Products makes. I'm sure there are many more options, but I was just playing around, so it didn't really matter!

Wonderful!!!!! I can't wait to try it! I wish I had time to make a trial run but her shower is March 6th and right now I'm busy making my entry for a show in San Diego, so my time is limited!

Thank you for the feedback!!!

This sounds so fun! I have only made petit fours once, and they were good, but I am not sure I really did them right. I made a cake in a jelly roll pan and then cut them into small squares. I melted down raspberry jam and covered them, then used the pourable icing over that. I could see the jam through the icing. Is that suppose to happen? They were pretty to me, and tasted great but is that the coreect way to make petit fours? I could use some help with this one, PLEASE

I plan on using a jelly roll pan as well but I'm going to cut the cake in half down the pan, put filling on one half and then flip over the other half so it is sandwiched. Then I'm going to refrigerate them to set the filling and the cake and then form the fondant around each one after I cut them out.

BTW, on my next entry (cookies again) I'm doing a brush embroidery on them. I'm doing it now and it looks really pretty!

The way you made your Petits Fours is just fine but you shouldn't be able to see the jam through the icing. You might want to try an apricot glaze, rather than the raspberry, since that won't show through. If you really want to use the raspberry, you might want to check out a few different recipes for the icings.

Thanks for the reply. I did not really think about the apricot glaze. I am such a raspberry fan! I just thought I was doing something wrong with the icing. icon_rolleyes.gif Thanks for the tip. It makes me feel better. I will try them again and then post a picture. Now I am craving something RASPBERRY! LOL icon_biggrin.gif
