Place a slice of bread on a cutting board. Align a star-shaped cutter in the centre of the slice. Push the cutter through the bread, then remove excess bread outside the cutter. Hold the cutter down on the bread during this step to prevent the star from tearing. Gently remove the star from the cutter and repeat on all slices of bread.
In a medium bowl beat together eggs, cream, honey, salt, cinnamon, orange zest and vanilla.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium high heat.
Dip both sides of the stars in the egg mixture and carefully transfer to the hot pan. Brown on both sides and transfer to a warm plate while remaining stars cook. Serve hot.
