1  c  Flour
1/4  ts  Salt
1  c  Sugar

1    Stick butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375 F. Beat eggs until thick and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition. Beat in milk and vanilla. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture and beat until smooth. Spread in a greased and floured 12.5 x 10.5" jellyroll pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. When cool, cut into tiny squares or circles, decorate with frosting and garnish with flowers, if desired. To make the frosting, mix butter and sugar together and add extract and milk or cream to make a smooth spread. Divide among four small bowls; add a drop of food coloring (blue, red, green and yellow) to each bowl. Mix well, and pipe a rosette of frosting onto each tiny cake.
