Today we made petit fours.
Petit fours are sweet little cakes, decorated with a poured icing and in this case marzipan flowers.
One of the cakes the kids made was chocolate and the other one vanilla.
We filled the cakes with raspberry jelly and butter cream, cut them into 1.5" squares and cooled them in the freezer for a while so that they became hard.
Here the kids are making little delicate flowers out of marzipan that we dyed with food coloring. The smaller the decorations the fancier the petit fours look.
Very carefully the cakes are drizzled with a poured icing and then decorated.
I think they turned out really nice! Bon appetite!
