Petit Fours aka Cute Mini Desserts

Ever wonder what those French petit fours really are? Well, wonder no more; A La Tart is happy to demystify them for you. (Hint: they're really just cute and mini!)

In case you didn't know, petit fours aren't just those kinda gross square white cakes with a crusty pink flour on top that you've had at a tea or shower.  Petit four is just a classy french way of saying mini dainty dessert, they can come in tarts, cookies, cakes — just make them tiny. They can even be savory (petit fours sales).

A classic french petit four is the French macaroon; more pictures of those to come later this week!
