  • Petit Fours Easy Icing by Buckwheat

    Posted February 02, 2006 12:00 PM

    This was excellent. We did them for a baby shower on Saturday, and tinted them with green, purples, pinks, blue, yellows, from deep to the palest shades.

    1/2 cups hot water
    3 cups sugar
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla
    2 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
    Put water, sugar and cream of tartar into a saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil.
    Bring to 226 degrees on a candy thermometer. PLEASE USE A THERMOMETER.
    Cool to 110 degrees (Don't put in refrig)
    Add remaining items.
    Add food color to whatever tint you wish, but add slow drop at a time because you can't take it away once it is done!
    Spoon over petit fours on racks.
    Anything that falls through racks can be reheated and used.

    A good recipe to keep!
