Oh, yeah. Just call me Betty.



This was one of the easiest little desserts to make!



In the February issue of Woman's Day (easy...my mom gave it to me...) they had a fantastic recipe on the front.



Petits fours:



Cut frozen pound cake into 1-inch cubes.



Spoon canned frosting into a bowl (stick with regular icing- not whipped), tint with gel food coloring as desired. Microwave frosting 10-15 seconds (I did 20) until it's the consistency of heavy cream.

(you may have to re-heat the icing several times throughout the icing process)



With a fork, dip each cube into frosting to coat. Let drip into bowl, tap fork to remove excess. (make sure the cube is coated all around)



With a dull knife, slide frosted cake onto foil lined baking sheet.



If using sprinkles, decorate immediately so they'll stick.



Using tube of decorating icing, pipe message on others.



I placed them in mini-cup cake paper holders. They stored great in the fridge.



They were definitely pretty tasty!!

Wouldn't that be fun to serve at a tea party for E's friends? I'm thinking about having a dress up (2nd wearing of the Easter dresses) tea party for her and her Sunday school friends. I love your little cakes. :)
