Red Velvet Cake Stars

Lately, I've been obsessed with Bakerella and her amazing skills. I wanted to try the Red Velvet Cake Balls because they seemed pretty simple. I had to make treats in the shape of stars so I thought I would make an attempt for Red Velvet Cake Stars. They are much more time consuming than making the balls but I was pleased with how they turned out. I made about half a batch of stars and the rest were the usual balls.


A few tips for trying the stars:
  • If you use white chocolate, be prepared to have the white chocolate mix with the red velvet cake. I could only use about half of the almond bark before it got too crumby and turned pink. The stars seem to be especially fragile because of the points.
  • Use a small cookie cutter. It needs to be small to keep the shape. Also, the cake mixture will stick to the cookie cutter. I used a bamboo kabob stick and gently pushed the star out in the corners.
  • Don't be fooled, the best way to dip these is a spoon. It seems strange because of the shape but I tried using a fork thinking that it would help keep the shape but the spoon worked much better.

That's seriously impressive. So much so that I'm too scared to try it. I'll have to try the balls though. How could I resist?
