Petit Fours Help

eel | Oct 5, 2004 08:40 PM

I’m making petit fours for the first time for a baby shower. I’m a reasonably experienced baker but accustomed to a bigger scale, which I imagine is more forgiving.

I want them to taste really great, in addition to looking good.

Any advice as to cake type (sponge?) and fillings?

How about the icing? I was thinking of tinted poured fondant ala the Cake Bible, but I’ve never tried it.

Is there a chocolate icing that would pour, coat well, AND taste great? I’m considering ganache, but I fear that it would not set firm enough to pick up and eat with fingers.

Any tips for making the petit fours look really symmetrical and flat?
