Petit Fours decorated with fondant roses

I have a thing for small sweet treats and petit fours are definitely one of them. These petit fours are made with a delicious vanilla butter cake and a home made raspberry jam filling. They are covered with a simple pink sugar icing and decorated with pink fondant roses and small piped royal icing leaves on top. A sweet little treat for Valentine’s Day.

If you find petit fours too sweet, then try to use some fruit or curd filling as this can help making the petit fours less sweet. Next time, I will try and cut three or four thin layers of cake, so that I can make them with even more fruit filling.

You can read more about how you make them in my tutorial how to make petit fours

I have also found some great video’s on YouTube:

    Absolutely beautiful. If I’d made those I almost WOULDN’T want to eat them, I’d want to just sit there and admire their delicate prettiness forever! (though mine wouldn’t turn out like yours of course!)

    Thank you for all the information you so freely give… I am a grandmother who only makes cakes for my family and I really enjoy and use so many of your great tutorials.
