Ghostly Petit Fours

Ghostly Petit Fours

So I admit that these petit fours don't look exactly as planned. I had high hopes and a grand plan, but ... it just didn't quite work out that way. Martha! Why must you break my heart so? I've found that sometimes it's a good idea to have, oh, a pastry-school diploma on your wall when you attempt a quintessential Martha recipe. Not that these didn't taste great. They did! And not that they aren't still simply adorable. They are. But I really struggled with the frosting and glaze - one was too thick (the glaze) and one was too thin (the frosting.) But believe you me - I may be bruised but I am not broken. There is always next year. Or the next. Or maybe, you know, after pastry school? Hey. We all have goals in life....
