Lemon Petit Fours

These little Lemon Petit Fours came out so cute.  I made two different shapes Bunny Lemon Petit Fours and Flower Lemon Petit Fours.  It is may regular semi homemade cake recipe with a twist.  They made a simple petit four glaze.  You will look like you have been cooking up a storm, when really you just whipped these out in about an hour.

Lemon Petit Fours


1 box Lemon Cake Mix
1 box lemon instant pudding
1 16 oz container sour cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup water


8 cup powdered Sugar
2/3 white corn syrup
1/2 lemon juice
yellow food coloring

Other things you'll need:

Wilton bunny silicon mold ( I got mine at Michaels)
Wilton flower mold ( I got mine from Target)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray nonstick cooking spray in your molds.
Icing to dot eyes and noses on the bunnies

In a mixing bowl mix cake mix and lemon pudding blend well.

Then add sour cream, eggs, water, and oil and mix on low for a minute and then turn to high and mix for 2 minutes or until batter is smooth.

Spoon into molds until about 2/3 full

Cook bunny mold cakes for 12 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cook flower molds for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick comes our clean.

Cool in molds for 10 minutes on a wire racks, then turn out on wire racks and cool completely. 

Once cool if necessary you can trim the bottoms off of the cakes to lay flat.

lemon Glaze


Mix powdered sugar, white corn syrup and lemon juice in a large bowl until well mixed.

Put in microwave for 45 seconds on high, stir again.

Glaze should be thin enough to pour over petit fours.

Spoon evenly over petit fours.

Heat in microwave for another 30 seconds if necessary as glaze starts to thicken.

Continue spooning glaze over peitit fours.

Once finished let sit for 1 hour to dry.

Then use the icing for the eyes and noses on the bunnies.

You are set and ready to serve.

This made 48 bunnies and 46 flowers

I hope you enjoy these little Lemon Petit Fours.  They were fun to make and came out so cute.  I always love hearing from you.
