I have had a couple brides want to order petit fours for their weddings this summer, in the pictures they showed me the petit fours are not in cupcake wrappers but placed directly on the cake stand. If the petit fours are placed directly onto the cake stand wouldn't they stick to it?

They will leave a sticky mess, at the very least.  Are these actual petit fours, or fondant covered mini cakes?  I would use a very shallow candy wrapper if they are petit fours, or the display will look very messy as people help themselves.

Hi Liz,


Thanks for your response. I was originally thinking of just doing fondant covered cakes but then I was readings posts about people using the poured fondant method so I was thinking of trying that. If I stick with the rolled fondant method do you think they will still stick? I just have it in my head that people will try to pick one up off of the cake stand and it will be stuck to it and leave half of it behind if I don't use a baking cup underneath. Thanks for all of your help!

I don't use rolled fondant, but would you use a mini cake plate under a mini fondant cake, just like a large cake?  That would help keep the stand neat and tidy.

In the old days they use to provide a pair of dessert tongs to use when removing each piece, but I guess the old days are over.
