Petit fours are a very diligent process. I personally did not make them but these delicious morsels were made yesterday and I got to watch HOW they were made so now I get to share with the world. You bake cake, let’s say for the sake of this conversation it’s a red velvet cake, very thin on several sheet pans. You let the cake cool then you layer it: cake, buttercream frosting, cake, buttercream frosting, cake. Finally comes a layer of fondant icing which is carefully drizzled over the topas to cover the entire cake. Then comes the design and there you have it, a petit four!
