this is a tutorial by ddaigle.  I made three batches right off the bat and her instructions worked well.

Thank you both so much. I decided I'm going to give them a dozen cupcakes free, a refund for the petit fours and a coupon for a free dozen cupcakes. It's almost 11 and no time to remake tonight. :( but thank your for the tips I will use them in the future and for sure not charge $10 that was dumb of me

My friend ordered petit fours for a party one time to fit the "tea party" theme. The baker could not execute them properly and she ended up having something like a cupcake. I feel bad the customer won't have what they anticipated for their event. I suggest next time you practice a technique before you take on a customer's request to save yourself the stress and the customer's disappointment.

There is a tutorial on this site for how she does them in her bakery, including her recipe:

Lots of other great video tutorials also.
