Vintage Mini Cakes
Petit Fours topped with charming mini flowers bring spring sunshine to the table even if the windows are covered with frost. At Baker Babes Bakery the basis for these little cakes is a vintage genoise recipe found in an old Italian country cookbook from 1959. This genoise compliments frosting extremely well. The cake is exceptionally versatile, moist, and rich. If you love baking we encourage you to make a genoise. It can be a bit tricky because the butter must be added very lightly and mixed carefully. However, this cake is worth the added attention since it is a fabulous basis for any variety of dessert cakes such as petit fours. If you want someone to feel special petit fours are the perfect treat. They are luscious to the last bite.
