Hi, I am new to cake central.......I have always adored petit fours and decided that I would like to make them. I thought...........they can't be that hard. So far the cake part has been easy. I need help with icing recipes and tips. The icing recipe I used is SO sweet. I saw one that had chocolate and whipping cream in it, has anyone ever used it? The other problem I had was removing the petit fours from the rack after they cooled. The icing cracked right up the sides. Any tricks to getting the icing all the way down on all sides? I would appreciate any helpful tips! Thanks, Jerilynnn

Check the recipe section for some simple poured fondant recipes. After dipping, my PF's go on a piece parchment paper. When firm I use a fillet knife and cut the "feet" off to release the product. Then I place in candy cups to package. My wish list includes a donut glazer.....

Thanks! I'll have to try that! Sounds like you dip yours rather than pour over them on a rack. Do you just use your fingers or do you put them on any kind of utensil?
