I think I'll Make Petit Fours

After I baked Katie's birthday day, I realized that I had some extra cake batter. What better to do with this extra cake than to bake it in a square pan, cool the cake, cut it into 1" squares, and freeze? Because what's better than petit fours?

I made a practice one with raspberry preserves and rolled fondant, with mixed results. I really liked the taste of the raspberry, but the fondant was just too sweet. Marshmallow fondant is good, but I don't think I could really eat more than a taste of it.

So I've been thinking, and doing some research, and I've come to the conclusion that I will pour dark chocolate over the petit fours, instead of fondant. I thought about white chocolate, but honestly I can't stand the stuff. Dark chocolate, however, is a different story.

In my research, I discovered that petit fours can cost as much as $2.50, and that Godiva petit fours look mouth-wateringly good. They can be easy to make, or finicky, and that there is a variety of ways to make them. All of this information was just so overwhelming!

The frozen cake is still in the freezer, but when I get a spare moment, I will certainly take the time to make these tasty little treats, and I hope that they taste as good as they look! (I also hope that the petit fours that I make will actually look good!)
