This is an old recipe, I have not made it myself, so I am not sure about the size of the cake pans.

These are on the order of petite fours.... but not quite..

I was planning on making these for my grand daughter Genevieve's birthday on the 13 of March..... but my oven broke.... so I don't know what I will do.... guess save this til next year...

***This is not my photo, got it from internet... it is a photo of petite fours, but is similar to what this recipe describes.
