Petti Fours~Substitute

I have never been able to do a good job at Petti Fours.
In my frustration this is what I have come up with as a
substitute until I can make them well.
To save time and mess during serving,
these little cakes are a good alternative to Petti Fours.

Bake the cake mix in a cookie/baking sheet.
It will be about 1/2 - 1"in height after baking.

Cut into small squares, placing one on top of the other so they are the same size.
Optional: Pipe icing around the edge of the first layer and add strawberry filling (jam).
Place second layer on top. You could skip the layer and filling and just ice a thicker layer.
Using a 16 or18 star tip decorate up and down, and then across on the top.
With a 103 or 104 make a rose bud.
Add leaves with green icing, or use fresh mint leaves (above).

What an absolutely gorgeous tea party, Kathy! The pictures are lovely, and make me quite eager to have one of my own. Thank you for sharing these.

Have a great day,
