Party Treat: Petit Fours turned Cake Squares

 

Normally when I try something new it comes from a vision or desire to taste something.  Today my vision and taste buds moved me to create petit fours.  Unfortunately my vision did not quite come out right.  Instead of petit fours I got cake squares/rectangles.  Though I didn’t end up with what I wanted…the kiddos tasted them and I got thumbs up.  I have not given up on making petit fours. In the meantime these cake squares will go well at the next cookout or graduation party! Enjoy!
