Petit fours are elegant bite sized deserts. They are most often small layered cakes, soaked in simple syrup and covered with a fondant or a glaze.
Petit fours are a perfect fit for tea parties and bridal showers. A tower of petit fours could be a unique alternative to a wedding cake.
These step describe how to make raspberry almond petit fours coated with a white chocolate ganache.
Step 1: Ingredients
I baked a white almond wedding cake using this recipe.
I used store bought cream cheese frosting.
- 12 oz raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cups water
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 bag white chocolate chips
- 2/3 cups heavy cream
NOTE: This ganache was still sticky after it dried. If you would prefer a hard coating, 1 package of melted candy coating squares with a couple tablespoons of shortening is a great alternative.
