Tips  

Use ready-to-spread chocolate frosting instead of the homemade buttercream. You'll still get rave reviews for these sensational sweets!

Here's a hint: Instead of making chocolate cutouts, buy Betty Crocker© chocolate decorator shapes available at the supermarket or cake decorating supply stores.
