by @thecypressroom “Persian Lime macarons today @patty_bakes @hedygoldsmith #prettyinpaint #thankyou #petitfour A petit four (plural: petits fours) is a small confectionery or savoury appetizer. The name is French, petit four (French pronunciation: [pø.ti.fur]), meaning “small oven”.
Petits fours were traditionally made in a smaller oven next to the main oven. In the 18th century some bakers made them during the cooling process of coal-fired brick ovens to take advantage of their stored heat, thus exploiting coal’s high burning temperature and economizing on its expense relative to wood. #wikithanks #themoreyouknow #learning 👸💗🇫🇷🔥🍪🍩” via @PhotoRepost_app
