We know the old saying "Let them eat cake.." Well, we do... We really really do. If you set a cake in front of us.. It will be gone.
These days with a rash of baby showers and birthday parties.. We have had our fair share of cake!
But, who is to say what the right amount of cake is?
It is very easy to get carried away when you see a glorious giant birthday cake in front of your little face... And these days, well, these days cupcakes are come as big as your head!
So, in the name of portion control, and in all honesty just in the name of super cute girlie-ness, we are calling it now that Petit Fours are going to be making a huge comeback. Huge.
A quick history of the Petit Four.
Petit Four is french for small oven, there are two kinds of Petit Fours,
Petits fours secs (sec meaning "dry") include a variety of small desserts, such as special dainty biscuits, baked meringues,macaroons, and puff pastries. Petits fours glacés (glacé meaning "iced") are iced ordecorated in some way, such as tiny cakes covered in fondant or glacé icing, small éclairs, and tartlets.
Today we will be talking, and drooling over the Petits fours glacés.
