Petits Fours Class at Dragonfly Cakes

Look at these gorgeous petits fours! I’m still in complete awe that I made these. Okay, okay. Dragonfly Cakes made them, but I dipped and decorated them. Thanks to Groupon and the lovely Momster, I attended a class on how to make petits fours: Groupon for the half off coupon and the Momster because of her “I’ll pay for cooking classes if you send me the recipes and tips” rule. Both are pretty sweet deals if you ask me.

The petits fours class was held in Sausalito in the commercial kitchen of Dragonfly Cakes. The instructor was as knowledgeable as she was charming, just as the petits fours were as delicious as they were adorable. The class started off with a start to finish demonstration of constructing the cake, buttercream, jam and marzipan layers. Tips for success were given throughout and Dragonfly Cakes was kind enough to share their absolutely amazing recipes with the participants.
Once the cakes were constructed, a quick demo on dipping and decorating was given before participants were let loose to put the finishing touches on their own tiny treats. I’m still amazed that we were given so many petits fours to practice on. When all was said and done, each participant took home two boxes {roughly two dozen!} of their hand dipped and decorated petits fours.
