Happy Thursday, and Happy Birthday to all of you celebrating this September!

If y’all are reading Baker Maid’s blog then you know that petit fours are perfect for weddings, showers, and holidays. Perhaps you’ve seen them floating around social media webs or in your local grocery store. Regardless of your petit four exposure, there’s no denying that these little cake bites are as diverse as they are adorable. That brings me to today’s blog focus: Birthdays!

I was recently speaking with a friend of mine who is the mother of one of the most precocious little ladies I have ever met. She mentioned that she follows our feed on Instagram and wondered if we had come across anyone using petit fours for kid’s birthday parties. My short answer was, “not often enough.” These little cake bites are perfect for kids birthday parties, or small celebrations within the family. They’re totally customizable; they cut down on icing, waste, and mess; and they’re stinkin’ adorable!

So in honor of Kim and little Molly (love you, ladies!) here are some cute and perfectly party ready birthday petit fours.
