Petit Fours

I tried Gambino's. They shipped to my apt in LA just fine, but their petit fours are more like mini king cake then like the petit fours we know and love.

To the suggestions above, thank you for posting these, but those bakers sell the "fancier" kind of petit four that are filled with a variety of jams and fillings.

What I'm looking for is a square of almond-like pound cake covered in a fondant. It's a pretty simple dessert but heavenly!

Where to find excellent petit fours.....

I know this is so far away - but I know exactly what you're talking about. I grew up just outside of New Orleans and McKenzies was our go-to for birthdays and such. I haven't found anything in LA that matches the same kind of petit four (but am still looking). However, an uncle in Houston says that Moeller's in Houston is the same thing. You could check to see if they ship.

Petit Fours

Hi - I'm from New Orleans and am planning a wedding here in LA. All I've ever wanted for a wedding cake is stacks of petit fours (a la MacKenzies in New Orleans). Does anyone know of any bakeries in town that make petit fours? Not the kind with filling on the inside, just the cake and icing!
