Picture of Petit Fours
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

Picture of 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.

To avoid the cakes from tipping.........I use jelly roll pans, petit fours are just around 1" and much easier to hand and are more delicate looking
