Can someone explain this sentece?

Her face is red like an apple.
It's in the expansion for the candy lesson at intermediate level. What I'm not getting is the "红得". What's that "得" doing there, grammatically speaking? Is this a pattern? Can I say "她的脸小得像苹果一样" for "Her face is small like an apple"? Or "我可爱得像小狗一样" for "I'm cute as a puppy"?
