This weekend is big. My sweet Zeda girl turns 4 and we have a few parties lined up. First, a little Tea Party tomorrow afternoon with her favorite little girl friends. I’m working hard today getting everything baked and organized and these little beauties are on the list!
They seem so easy and look so pretty; I’ll let you know how they turn out.
From Amy Atlas in Country Living:
“People will swear these are from a fancy bakery,” says Atlas of this tempting shortcut. To follow her lead: Use a serrated knife to cut the crust off a pound cake, then slice the cake into one-inch squares. Place them on a cooling rack with parchment paper underneath, pour icing over the squares, and let set for an hour. Atlas’s 60-second icing recipe? Mix four tablespoons of water to two cups of sifted confectioner’s sugar. Tint the mixture by stirring in a bit of gel food-coloring.
I’m off to start these Petits Fours!
Stay tuned, I’ll be writing much more about her birthday in the next couple of weeks.
