Pretty Petit Fours Mini Cakes is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would it not be easier to just simply use a heart shaped mini cake pan then to cut the cakes? I use my Mini cake pan, and even cut them in 1/2 to make them into a double layer. Then deocrate each cake a little diffrent, using persons fav color icing or colors to cornate with holidays, they look great, and dont have to be asked cut me a small peice when they really want 1/2 the cake. Works great for any desert time... with ones you love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We made these pretty petit mini cakes for a bridal shower. I had my friends and family assist me with the decorating. We made several different flavors. We were able to make the flowers in advance and assemble them quickly once we frosted the cakes. These pretty petit mini cakes were so much fun to make and were such a big hit at the bridal shower. I would highly recommend them to everyone... enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pretty and elegant. To go the extra mile, you could do cakes inspired by the wedding cake (but only if you really, really like the bride).
