Instructions
Using assorted star cutters, cut gum paste thin and cut numerous size stars. Allow to dry overnight.
Ice cake layers with thin layer of buttercream icing. Prepare 8" and 10" cakes for stacking with dowels. Brush cakes with piping gel before covering with rolled fondant.
Roll royal blue fondant and cover the cake drum and the 6" cake. Using a 1 1/2" star cutter, cut stars out of the blue fondant. Roll white fondant the same depth as the blue fondant then using the same star cutter, cut white stars. Replace the white stars where the blue ones were taken out brushing the back with piping gel.
Roll white royal fondant and red royal fondant. Use one of the perfection strips as a guide to cut stripes with the pastry wheel. Brush 8" cake with piping gel then add red and white stripes alternately.
Roll white fondant and cover the 10" cake. Assemble 6", 8 and 10" cake onto cake drum.
Mix your colors with a small amount of water to make paints. Using a fine tip brush, paint assorted sizes of fireworks on the 10" cake layer. Stick two wooden skewers on top of 6" cake and attach gum paste stars with piping gel.
