When you cut out one star, you are cutting two, so you can use the inside and outside of each star!

Thank you for all the suggestions! I think I'll make pizza this week and save a little dough for texting out after the kids are in bed. I'll be sure to post pictures of whatever I end up using for the party!
Always try to bring a spare set of clothing when you dream about going to work or school. That way, if you encounter someone having that dream where they show up in their underwear, you'll be their hero.

Don't envy you today. I remember having to make and design a Spider Man cake. Couldn't find a cake mold. Did it all freehand.

Since your going to already have your hands full with kids. Is pre made ahead, frozen out of the question?

A simple bread dough recipe would work for the dough. Rolled out. Cut into stars as suggested already. Take the dough and place it on the back side of a muffin pan. Bake for a few minutes. You could even crimp the sides yourself. When they're cooled fill and freeze them. If one doesn't turn out tell the kids your lucky. You got the shooting star.

All you'll have to do is bake and serve.
If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

If you pre-bake a round crust and cut out one large star you could use the trimmings to fashion a Ninjas star! Be sure to dock the dough to minimise the rise.
