It's a French word meaning small oven. Each Petits Fours is a miniature multi-layered almond butter cake filled with smooth velvety truffle creams, fruit fillings, and exotic butter creams, covered in specialty chocolates for a fancy finish and to keep in the freshness. The company is from the Bay Area.
Mazipan is made of almonds, sugar (sometimes honey), glucose syrup, and water. It can also sometimes contain egg whites. Marzipan tastes sweet and with its finely ground almonds it has a smooth texture. It can be formed and colored into any shape. Most of the time you will see them in a shape of a fruit.
