United Stars Mini Cake
ROTC and military-academy graduates are sure to salute these playfully patriotic petit fours. Bake six at a time in our Mini Star Pan, cool, and cover with melted Candy Melts. Finish with Patriotic Nonpareil Sprinkle Decorations and piped candy details.
Each cookie serves 1.
Bake and cool cakes. Cover with melted candy; let set.
Use a spatula to add a thin layer of melted candy to sides; immediately sprinkle with nonpareils. Tint portions of melted candy blue and black using candy colors.
Pipe dot and outline facial features using cut parchment bags. Insert cake pick.
Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.
Characters or designs are often outlined first, then piped in with stars or zigzags. Outlines can also be used for facial features.
