  1. Prepare cake according to package directions. Pour into a lightly greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 18-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut cake into eggs (or other desired shapes) with a 2-1/2-in. oval cookie cutter. In a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water and extract; beat on low speed until sugar is moistened. Beat on high until smooth. Place petit fours on a rack with waxed paper beneath. Spoon the glaze evenly over tops and sides, letting excess drip off. Allow glaze to set; repeat with second coat if necessary. Let stand until set. Decorate with gels. Yield: about 2 dozen.
