Petit Four Cutters?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I'm trying to find some petit four cutters. I bought these from Amazon, but they're way too small - only one inch across and two inches tall. When I took a petit four class a few weeks ago, the guy teaching the class had some that were larger - about 1 3/4" across and almost three inches tall. I asked him where he got his, but he doesn't remember.

 

Does anyone know where I can find larger petit four cutters? All the ones I find online are tiny and I need something bigger. I found some REALLY big ones, but they're too big (3inches across).

A yardstick and a knife would be quicker, as in this video:

Yep agree with CWR41 100%.   I have my special PT4 ruler..that is about 1 1/2 inches wide.  That is the width I use...though I've seen them vary.  I have very little waste by hand cutting.

I've hand cut them in the past, but that only works for square petit fours. If you're making round ones, good luck with that without a cutter!

But your link implies you're making squares.

If you want round petit fours, get a round or oval nested cutter set. That way, you'll have a selection of sizes to choose from. I've used other shapes for petit fours too.

That's just want I happened to link to because I need both a larger circle AND a square. Here's a link to a circle if that legitimizes my question:

It's apparent you didn't like the answers you received so rather than saying thanks to those who answered, you replied with something irrelevant then changed the question to match your remark.  Forgive me for responding with a relevant and helpful link.  I'll refrain from offering my advice for circle cutters.  I hope you find a solution.

@IAmPamCakes, Thanks for the tip. I'm not sure they are deep enough to cut a two layer petit four, but I will give them a try.

 

@CWR41, Though it wasn't very helpful, I do appreciate your response.

Those are the ones I bought that were too small. As mentioned in my OP I need something 1 3/4 inches or so.

Have you thought about a food can with both ends removed?  This would give you rounded different sizes, How about a cracker container for the square ?  Both would be food safe, dishwasher washable, and strong enough to cut.
