Fresh Ingredients

You’ve heard it all before…… ” Their products have been made with the best ingredients possible”.  I can say it with confidence and mean it.

There is no excuse for a badly made dessert with terrible ingredients, that is why I do not settle for second best and I mean it.

Everything I use is of the best quality you can find. I bake with only the best quality nuts, Belgian Chocolate, dairy and everything is sent to me directly from the suppliers. It is bought freshly on a daily basis.

About US

Our Story

The idea of Aux Petit Four was born many, many years ago when I received my first cook book from my parents. I can remember trying out an array of recipes on them, from a Toad in a Hole, Toffee Apples to Sprinkle Toast and Baked Alaska’s. We spent holidays baking Lamingtons and making Fudge ….those were the days. I’ve always had a love for food and especially a passion for the Sweet Things in Life. When I met my husband, Erick, we spent a month in France. I returned loving every aspect there was to love about France, their Macaroons, Patisseries and Boulangeries.

Erick has been able to incorporate his French Flair into our little business Aux Petit Four. I completed a business diploma and qualified as a pasty chef, so we are taking our business to new heights. We hope to share some of this French Flair and love for the sweet things in life with you.
