  2. To make the Petit Fours
  3. In a bowl stir together sugar, vanilla, oil, and water. Add remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33-cm) baking pan.
  4. Bake for about 35 minutes, or until middle appears cracked and is firm to the touch. Let cool, then place in the refrigerator until chilled.
  5. Cut the chilled cake into mini squares. You may make them whatever size you choose. I try to make them small enough to fit inside a mini cupcake paper liner.
  6. To make the Fudge Frosting
  7. Place shortening and water in a saucepan and heat until melted and smooth, about 30 seconds. Place powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt With a mixer,. Turn mixer on low speed and slowly pour hot shortening mixture into the mixer. When ingredients are combined, turn mixer to medium high speed, stopping to scrape down the sides often. Mix for about 1 minute.
  8. While the fudge frosting is still warm, spoon or spread over the tops and sides of the cake cubes. Set on a fl at surface or place in the refrigerator to let the frosting set and cool.
  9. To make the White Frosting
  10. Combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and water (if needed) in a food processor and blend until smooth. Pour frosting into a resealable plastic bag and cut off one corner of the bag. Pipe out frosting to create decorations on the fudge-frosted squares. Decorate with safe candies, edible flowers, or even try mini bows. Place each decorated treat in a mini paper muffin liner to serve.
