“I watched Chef Rakesh Sethi, the creator of these mind-blowing stars, make these on TV, yesterday. These look like they were made in heaven and were gently showered upon the Earth by a fairy on a dark cold night! These stars will be in my X'mas basket this year, for sure. Please note that the preparation time does not include the refrigeration time.”
