3 Petit Fours That Look Delicious
When I heard Lolita was about a petit four (pronounced “pet-a-fore”), I got really excited, as I loved baked goods.
Nothing is more awesome than going to a party and finding a table full of smallish chocolate filled pastries with confectioners sugar. Who doesn’t love a nice petit four with a steaming cup of hot chocolate?
And who would’ve thought a novel about a petit four (pronounced “pet-a-fore”) would be one of the most highly regarded, classic novels of the 20th century? How creative is Nabokov guy?
So in honor of Lolita, I present to you three petit fours (pronounced “pet-a-fore”) that look delicious.
1) Now look at that one. Wow, what a beautiful group of petit fours. Look, it’s a Christmas theme! How lovely!
2) Shut your mouth! This is like a petit four party tray only found in some type of petit four promise land. What I love about these petit fours is the mirrored tray. Thanks to the tray, you get to bask in the beauty of your reflection as you eat this decadent, chocolatey goodness, so it’s almost like eating the petit four twice.
3) So the photo description on Flickr says this is a “super cute lemon mousse blackberry petit four.” I don’t know about “super cute” part, unless that’s a culinary term that is on par with “I would eat 15 of these and not feel one bit bad about it–at least emotionally.” How are those lines so straight? If petit fours ever establish their own kingdom, I suggest that this photographed petit four become the Petit Four Prince.
Hold up. Wait a minute. Oh, no…I’m so embarrassed.
I just realized Lolita is about a pedophile, not a petit four. Well, that’s just disgusting now isn’t it?
This saddens me. I have to read a book about a pedophile? Seriously?
I’d much rather the book be about some type of petit four drama—maybe a group of competitive petit fours fight it out to be eaten at the Royal Wedding.
But, instead, Lolita is about some old pervert. Note to Vladamir Nabokov: Baked goods would’ve been much more interesting—and a lot less nauseating.
I’ll somehow manage my disappointment and preview Lolita tomorrow.
