Christmas Stars

November 24, 2018

Tiny star shaped cakes topped with mint and pomegranate. Tasty, cute and perfect party finger food. We've opted for a traditional rich choc cake  here, but any good moist cake or brownie recipes will work well including our vegan brownie recipe.  For more Christmas Finger Food Ideas see our Pinterest Boards
