Each luscious little layer cake is a piece of art.
1. Our Petits Fours begin simply: with simple, real ingredients like sweet cream butter and whole eggs…pretty much like you’d make them at home.
2. Sheets of European-style sponge cake are layered with rich butter cremes, cut into perfect little cakes, and generously coated with Swiss blend chocolate or creme confection.
3. Each mini layer cake is still decorated by hand. Swiss Colony is America’s Largest Handcrafting Bakery.
4. Finally, some Petits Fours can even be personalized! It’s that old-school touch that has made Swiss Colony Petits Fours treasured gifts for more than 50 years.
The Petits Fours experts.
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.

Petits Fours for every occasion.
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.
