Cherry Blossom Petit Fours are delicate little bite-sized treats made from cake, buttercream, and cherry jam. They’re perfect for showers, weddings, parties, or any time you’re craving a little something sweet! I’ve provided a recipe for making the pound cake, but as a shortcut you can use store-bought pound cake, or your favorite sturdy white cake recipe.
For the frosting, I like using my Easiest Swiss Meringue Buttercream
, but because this recipe doesn’t require a full batch of frosting, I leave the choice of buttercreams up to you. Homemade and store-bought will both work fine.
This recipe yields either 48 1.5” cake rounds, or 72 1-inch cake squares.
