SHF #24 Little bites of delight – My very first Petit fours

SHF#16Cook sister! hosts this month’s Sugar High Friday. Jeanne declared this month’s theme to be Little Bites of Delight, because good things come in small packages. What a challenge for me who can’t decorate properly any cake. But for my son’s birthday I baked a layer cake and baked again 1/4 of that recipe to make some petit four glacé

    Ich kann auch nicht dekorieren….
    Aber für nicht dekorieren können sind die doch sehr attraktiv geworden :-)

    Was ich mir noch gut drauf vorstellen könnte sind kleine silberne Zuckerperlen, oder halt vorgefertigte Dekoelemete aus weisser Schokolade.
