'80s Flashback for Petit Fours

For the second group project in Petit Fours, the group in charge chose an '80s theme for the day. One group member's recipe was frozen yogurt in homemade comes (made from tuile batter). Another group member's recipe was a take on rice krispies treats, which also included fruity pebbles and were garnished with white chocolate and pop rocks. The third group member's recipe was a "purple rain" cake, which was made using a red velvet cake recipe but dyed purple instead. The cake was cut into rain drop pieces, and decorated with flat icing. The final group member's recipe was a chocolate walnut cake. She used edible paper and an edible printer to create 1 inch squares of album covers popular in the 80s, which were placed on top of the cake covered in ganache. The edible covers are shown here:

And here's a picture of some of the final plating:
