Ok, so let’s talk about petit fours.
First off, for years and years I said petit like “petite”, but it turns out you say it like “pet teh”. PET. Like a dog. Only obviously, these are tiny cakes and not dogs, but it sounds like you are talking about animals.
I really should have known that it was “pet teh” because fancy words always have softer sounds. Where does the four part come from, can anyone tell me? Are we allowed to eat four of them? Or multiplies of four?
Let’s just run with that explanation, yes.
Anyways — Petit (pet teh) Fours!!
It turns out, these are not so fancy.
They’re just tiny pieces of cake. Normal people can eat them like it’s no big deal at all!!
Want to make some?
Listen to me carefully, because I am the Petit Four Whisperer…
You just need cake.
Cold cake. And some powdered sugar and water.
Who’s fancy now, huh??
I used a cake mix, to make these quick and easy, but if you have a favorite Red Velvet recipe, you could use that instead.
I baked my cake in 2 (9 inch) pans, because a 9×13 baked it thicker than what I wanted. For thinner petit fours (or to stack them with filling in the middle), you could use a larger jelly roll pan.
Silver Disco Dust can be purchased HERE.
These are so fun and easy for a Valentines Day treat. Enjoy!!
