I have a yen to try my hand at petit fours, but the poured fondant intimidates me. icon_razz.gif I know... silly! But the last time I tried them, I hadn't found CC and tried something I found online... nuking regular store-bought icing. That did Not Go Well At All. icon_razz.gif

So I'm ready to try again, but would like some advice from the wonderful folks here! icon_smile.gif

Favorite recipes? I'm also open to favorite cake/filling suggestions and any tutorials you've found that are uber-helpful. icon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance!

I haven't had much luck either with poured fondant. They came out so sloppy with bits of cake showing. Not a pretty sight!

I'm interested in hearing some of the responses too because I have 300 to make for a wedding in August. My plans are to cover them with rolled fondant because of my lack of success with poured fondant.

I think I remember seeing a response from a CC member a few months ago suggesting melting candy melts with whipped cream (like a ganache). I don't recall if anything else is added but maybe someone might remember and let you know.

Good luck!

I think poured fondant is too sweet, but I don't like the taste of rolled fondant on petit fours.

Does anyone have a slightly less-sweet poured fondant recipe?

DoniB, there were a couple of pictures showing beautiful petite fours on the "Popular Cake" part of CC's home page. They were made by Cake Journal. She has a website www.cakejournal.com that has a tutorial showing the recipe for poured fondant and how to do it. Her work is amazing - they are the best looking petite fours! You should check it out because I think you'll find it very helpful.
