Petits Fours are one of my favorite cakes – so tiny and yet bursting with luscious sweetness. They dress up any dessert table. They make the perfect bite-size gifts in pretty little boxes all tied up with ribbons and bows. And such an adorable name – Petits Fours. The literal French translation is “tiny ovens”. Hum . . . as it turns out, Petits Fours were traditionally made in a smaller oven next to the main oven, thus the name for these tiny cakes.
