Take some round slices of crystallised pineapple, which have had the core removed and so have a hole in the centre. Cut them into eight pieces. Place a teaspoonful of coating fondant (recipe for which is given here), flavoured with vanilla, at the bottom of a paper cup, which should have a point at each end, dip the rounded end of each piece of pineapple in the warm fondant until it is coated within half an inch of the top, then stand it in the centre of the paper cup on the fondant already half set. Send to table when set. The look of these petits fours is much improved if a little spun sugar is twisted round the pyramid.
