Petit Fours Mini Cakes is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was very disapointed with this recipie. The cake turned out wonderfull but the icing was a nightmare. It was way to think and when i got it to the right consistency it harded to fast when i put it on the cake. The touch ups where terrable becasue it would blob up and take the icing that was already on the cake off. Also, i heated it properly but it melted the buttercream i had used to ice my cakes. The cake was good the icing sucked

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Everything went well until the icing. It was so thick that it never went on evenly. It hardened quickly and I was reheating so much that I changed the consistancy of the icing. I ended up adding more liquid, which helped but changed the consistancy as well that I had to douse everything in powdered sugar. What I made turned out to be a diabetic coma waiting to happen. Normally everything Wilton works just as they say and works out so well. I will try other recipes and see what I get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the recipe and the instructions on how to make the perit fours. The pan makes it a lot easier. I would recommend a little extra time in preparing these for the first time and make sure you have some help in preparing them from the begginning. The first time making them it took me three afternoons since I woirk another job also.
