Okay, I need some help. I'mgoing to be doing petit four cakes. I need to know basically what am I doing? Do I take a 4 inch round cake pan make cakes, then cut, cover and decorate or is it more dificult. Thanks for all your help in addvance. Website links welcome. Thank you,LadyBug
Haven't done them since culinary school. We always did sponge cake on a sheet pan. Cut, filled, measured, and cut again. I definetly wouldn't a round pan. Way too much wasted cake. Even if you're doing round desserts. Sheet pan is best method for me.
Here's a link for you:
Fantastic instructions with photos here: http://cakesandcupboards.blogspot.com/search/label/petit%20fours
Sheet cakes, like Amy, fill, frost then freeze for a while, makes cutting easier. I use cookie cutters and glace icing or pourded fondant!
I made my first 10 dozen this Christmas. I actually really like to make them. I am the minority. Lisa's instructions are great. Good luck!
BTW.....WASC cake makes incredible petit fours!
THANK YOU!! LadyBug
I'm a little slow but what does "wasc" mean. I am looking these websites up because I have not clue. I am really excited to learn, it's okay for me to have left overs because I will be trying the cake balls too. THank you, thank you, thank you. THanks for the lift ddaigle.
P.S. Is their a special trick to red velvet cake? just wondering.
Okay I understand the less waist now, duh. Sorry a little slow. Also how do you charge for petit fours? I'm making these for a booth at a fair for tasting different kinds of cakes. Would the square be better than a round? I don't think left overs are going to matter, because the little girls who are trying to fit into their dresses will probably appreciate the littler pieces. Thank you for your thoughts. You gals are GRRRREAT!!

"White Almond Sour Cream" cake
I've never heard of that where's the receipy cause it sounds devine, and I want to try it!
Ladybug...personally, I like square. I bought one of those VERY square 11x15 cake pans from my party supply store and I have very very little waste. I make my 1.5 x 1.5....it makes a ton! Have fun.
