This is a sponge cake that it is perfect for making petits fours. Dense yellow cake that can stand up to the process of being cut into small pieces, and iced individually. Decorate each little cake with a whole nut, some candied fruit, tiny candies, sprinkles or coconut.
If you like, you can make little layer cakes with your favorite jam as the filling. You can also add flavor by brushing the cake with a simple syrup before glazing. A thin layer of marzipan on top will make the petits fours flat for glazing, too. Try this lavender-flavored simple syrup.
