Pikelet and Latke Canapés with Cured Salmon and Truffles

A pikelet is a small, unsweetened pancake used in Australian cuisine. Latkes are potato pancakes; these are sweet since they’re made of sweet potato. Canapés are little fingerfoods, often made in geometric shapes, made of a starchy base with savory ingredients draped over.
