Pronounced 'petty for', not 'petite four'. Don't sound like an idiot like I did :).

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.

It will be tasted good.
Hi <br> <br>To avoid the cakes from tipping.........I use jelly roll pans, petit fours are just around 1&quot; and much easier to hand and are more delicate looking
