Okay can someone clarify the difference between petite fours and a small one serving cake that is cut with a cutter (approx 3x3)?

What are the "requirements" for a petite four?

What does one usually charge for them?

Excuse my ignorance haha. I have someone wanting to order some for a bridal shower... with monograms. I havent done them before and would love any advice.

typically petit fours are bite sized, not one serving. you're looking at 1x2x1 instead of 3x3x2 (size of a mini cake). petit fours are traditionally dipped in a poured/liquid fondant and then you can pipe little monograms or flowers on them. (at least this is from what i understand).
