Christmas Petit Fours

I think, after sugar cookies, petit fours are my new favorite thing to do.

They lend themselves so easily to my ideas.

I seriously could have made a hundred of these… but no one likes fondant around here, so we (gasp!) just end up throwing them away.

I just might be adventurous and try the traditional square petit four next!

Anyone local have a theme or occasion in the next month? :)

    You are so sweet!! I just use the pre-packaged fondant from Wilton. I use Ateco food coloring to get the wonderfully vibrant colors!!
    I just stopped by your blog and it is beautiful… you are a great photographer!!
    Thanks so much!
    Blessings-

    The gift-wrapped ones are the best! They make you feel like you wanna undo the ribbons. Great job! The next time you feel like tossing something away, could you send it over to me instead?

    I join the others in asking “pretty please” for a tutorial (or at least a little more info on how you made them.
    Beautiful!

    They are so gorgeous!
    Hope you wouldn’t mind if I borrow your idea
    and just crossing my finger if I’ll get half-nice result compare to your work :)
    Happy new year to you and loved ones

    Poured fondant is so much tastier than rolled. You can even flavor it. I think of that as traditional petit fours. I have an idea I want to do for my bridal shower – wedding cake shaped petit fours!

    If you are using the Wilton pre-made fondant, I don’t blame you for not liking it. I have heard from everyone that has used it that it tastes nasty. I haven’t worked with fondant myself yet (kind of scared since I just got started with cake decorating), but I hear there is an awesome marshmallow fondant recipe out there. If I can get it this week at cake decorating class, I can pass it along if you don’t have it! I have been told, by many now, that it is a very good recipe; however it is best for just covering a cake or cutting 2D things out (3D stuff can take weeks to set from what I was told today).

    Beautiful! But no wonder your family doesn’t like fondant. The problem is the brand you’re using. Try Satin Ice or even Duff Goldman (Michael’s has it). I’ve tried many of the Duff Goldman products and I think they’re terrific. His fondant has a nice flavor and consistency, and is available in many colors.

    Can’t wait to see your tutorial–I’ve never made petit fours, but I do love to eat them!

    Say what?!?!?!? You throw them away??? Please tell me you no longer do this!?!?!?!?! I am such a no-throw-away kind of person!! I will either find someone to take them, or find a way to re-use stuff that I mess up or that didn’t turn out right. I would have GLADLY taken them off your hands! They are too cute!! I am not a huge fondant fan either, but I realized the marshmallow kind is way better than the others… :) I really want to make these now.

    It is gorgeous! Also a great idea as a Christmas gift. I’ve never play with fondant before but this is time definitely want to try it. I bet i will find a lot fun. :)

    Looking forward more your tutorial.
