  • This is one of those recipes that is perfect for the kids
to help with as you can use ready made ingredients
and they are pretty much fool proof.

  • All you need is:

    1-2 packages Sara Lee Pound Cake
    (in the freezer section)
    Betty Crocker ready made frosting
    decorations

  • Slice the pound cake into thin layers
and frost one side with desired frosting
and sandwich them together.

cake into desired shape.

  • I got two out of each "sandwich"
I love the Sara Lee because it cuts so cleanly
and there is very little crumb.

  • Place the sandwiched cake on a cooling rack with a
    piece of parchment paper or waxed paper underneath.

    Spoon about a cup or half of the can of frosting
    into a microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave
    for about 15-20 seconds or until soft. Stir
    trying to not add air bubbles. Spoon over the cakes
    trying to cover all sides. Use the spoon to fill
    in any gaps.

  • The excess frosting can be scraped back into the bowl and
    reheated. You don't want to put the whole can in at
    once because it does get a little stiff the more you microwave
    it. Let the frosting cool slightly so that your decorations
    don't slide right off. You want it slightly tacky when you
    apply any candy decor.

    Use a sharp knife to loosen the petit fours from the
    cooling rack after the frosting has comletely dried.

    Each pound cake will make about 12 petit fours if
    you sandwich them, depending on how thick you
    make the layers.

  • Vary the color of your frosting and the type of candy
and serve up a platter of beautiful treats.

Too easy and too fun.
