I don't see anything dedicated to petit fours. Does anyone have any tips.
Basically I was supposed to do a cake for a Bar mitzvah, and now the woman calls me up and says the caterer wants to do it, and will charge her, even if she doesn't use her for the cake. I of course already baked the cake.
WHat do I do? Do I say to bad, or make petit fours for her instead out of the cake?
Any tips on petits fours?
I hope you are still charging her since you already baked the cake! Wow, what a situation. Sorry, no advise on petit fours but I'm interested in learning. Good luck to you.
Hi, I think petit fours are brilliant idea. Here is a link for you on how to make them.
Last Friday Night Cake Club we discussed Petit fours. The thread is on the Cake Decorating forum.
Unless she is paying for you what y ou make I would just use the cake for family.
Make cake balls (aka:truffles). No decorating necessary
Just crumble the cake and add a bit of jam OR buttercream OR fruit juice and roll into small balls - no bigger than a gumball. Dip into choco & allow to set up/dry.
They can be rolled in sugar; powdered sug; well chopped nuts; or cocoa.
I was\\am getting paid for the cake, but still don't know what to do. i have never made petits four and don't want to practice on a paid customer.
It has been one of those disastrous customers from the start. First I was supposed to do the whole dessert table, then she said it was to expensive, so only the cake. Fine I came up with a brilliant design. then her mom ( the grandma) decides she doesn't like the design. So i come up with a new one. now this!
Should I just say sayonarra? I have another cake in less then 2 weeks that I can use the cake for.
