Combine blue cheese and cream cheese in medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Stir in vermouth and cayenne pepper.
Spoon cheese mixture into pastry bag fitted with a small star tip. Pipe a little cheese mixture into an olive; insert one slivered almond. Pipe more of the cheese mixture until it sticks out the end in a star. Repeat with remaining olives, cheese mixture, and almonds.
Serve olives immediately or place in an airtight container. Cover and chill for up to 24 hours; let stand 10 minutes before serving.
