I have always loved the look of these little cakes. So tiny and tempting, makes you want to pick one up and pop it into your mouth....they are actually almost too cute to eat, but will definately make a hit at your party. Also would make a nice gift to bring to your host!

1/2 white cake mix
jam of your choice
prepare a half of a white cake mix.
bake in a 9 inch pan
cool on rack remove from pan, then freeze! After frozen, remove from freezer, trim off crusty edges,cut into 1/2 inch squares,diamonds or circles. You may use small cookie cutters if you prefer. Split in half, then sandwich them back together with jam (for a filling). Arrange on cake rack well separated *be sure to have another pan under the rack*. Pour *warm Petits Fours frosting over the cakes,in a steady stream, be generous, covering each little cake completely. You may have to do 2 coats. Scrape up frosting that has dripped into the bottom pan back into the warm frosting pot. Repeat frosting. Let dry then decorate with tiny bits of nuts, dried fruit or piped on flowers, or drizzled white chocolate!

2/3 cup milk
2 tbs shortening
6 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 double boiler
scald milk add shortening,heat until melted. In medium bowl mix sugar and salt. Gradually pour in hot milk mixture, add vanilla. Pour frosting into double boiler pan, to keep warm. You may tint with food coloring if desired
