About this recipe: Entertain in style with this petits fours recipe. This sponge is perfect for making petits fours. It is a dense cake that can stand up to the process of being cut into small pieces, and iced individually.
The recipe writer fails to mention what to do with the butter! I added it alternating with the milk and flour. Also in the initial stages, the electric whisk or stand mixer speed needs to be gradually increased to get the pale, thick egg and sugar mixture which is essential to the success of this type of cake. The cake took about 17-18 minutes, but was successful. Also, some vanilla essence or vanilla bean paste should be added. - 30 Oct 2013
