The Petits Fours experts.

Women in 1960's in apron and hat hand decorating a tray of petits fours

In 1961, our founder, Ray Kubly, was throwing a party. He asked Master Pastry Chef Horst Hart for a special bite-sized dessert guests could enjoy as they pleased.

Horst replied, “You want Petits Fours!” And he made hundreds of them…all by hand.

They were a huge hit, and when Ray offered them in The Swiss Colony catalog, Horst dipped over 60,000 Petits Fours by himself.

Today, our Wisconsin bakery can make more Petits Fours in a day than Horst made in all of 1961, but they’re still hand-decorated…and sure to make your loved ones feel special.

Every celebration deserves a cake…but here’s a more practical alternative that’s very on-trend. Layers are the thing these days—desserts are going vertical. Small is big, too; party guests love to munch as they mingle.

Petits Fours can complement or replace a standard wedding cake. You’ll love the fact that there’s no cutting, no serving…no mess. These bite-sized desserts deliver towering flavor while remaining portably posh.
