One at a time? Oh no! I like my way better! LOL..Also, those little frozen cubes will defrost QUICK...so be prepared to loose a few when you dip.

ddaigle - How do you make yours? I have made them once and promised myself to do it again, but an easier way. Dipping lost me a lot of cake! However, her dipping recipe looks a lot better than the traditional method.

CakePrincess..I have a tutorial on CC...not as fancy as this tutorial..mine wasn't a video. Under the "tutorial tab"...I just do it differently...more of a "production style" technique. i think it's on page 4 now..here's the link:

Bijoudelanuit...PT4s...normally are not split & filled.

What kind of cake did you use for the P4s?

Can you give a link to the recipe?

Also, instead of sticking a skewer in the cake and dipping them, wouldn't it be easier just to put the cake on the fork and dip it (like dipping a chocolate)?

Thanks!

I do a lot of PT4s...and this method would not work for me..just too time consuming. It's good to see different kinds of ways to do these so people can see what works for them. I don't want to post my link on this one...but if you look in the "tutorial" tab you will find my method. I used my WASC recipe, but I recommend when practicing..just buy a Sara Lee pound cake.
