By Food & Wine

Inspired by French travel cakes (small sweets meant for bringing to parties, picnics and other events), William Werner created these miniature desserts. He calls them "gussied-up pound cakes."

[post_ads]Ingredients

cakes
  • 10 ounces almond paste, broken into 1-inch pieces (1 cup)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tablespoon St-Germain or other elderflower liqueur
icing
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons St-Germain or other elderflower liqueur
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest, plus zest strips for decorating

How to make this recipe

Make the Icing:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and spray 2 mini-muffin pans with vegetable oil spray. In a food processor, pulse the almond paste several times until broken into small pieces; don't overprocess or the paste will become oily. Add the eggs and pulse until smooth. Add the cornstarch and salt and pulse until smooth. Add the butter and St-Germain and pulse until incorporated.

Make the Icing:

  1. Scrape the batter into a small pitcher and pour it into the muffin cups, filling them about two-thirds full. Bake for about 22 minutes, until the cakes are golden, puffed and firm to the touch. Transfer the pans to a rack and cool for 20 minutes, then invert the cakes onto the rack to cool completely. 
 
 

Make the Icing:

  1. In a bowl, mix the confectioners' sugar, cream, St-Germain and lime juice. Using a handheld mixer, beat at low speed until smooth. Beat in the 1/2 teaspoon of grated lime zest. Spoon the icing over the cakes, allowing it to drip down the sides. Garnish with lime zest before serving.
