Additional Information

Step 1

Two days in advance, make fondant stars and letters for "fireworks". Tint 48 oz. blue, 18 oz. red, leave remainder white.

Step 2

Roll out fondant and use Cut-Outs to make the following stars: 3 large and 4 medium in blue, 3 medium and 4 small in white.

Step 3

Attach white stars to blue with damp brush. Cut red letters and attach with damp brush. Let dry 48 hours, reserving remaining fondant for cakes.

Step 4

Thin a small amount of white fondant with a little water; attach stars to lollipop sticks.

Step 5

Prepare 2-layer 6 and 10 in. cakes for stacked construction. Prepare cakes for rolled fondant by lightly icing with buttercream. Cover cakes with blue fondant; smooth.

Step 6

Cut out medium stars in white; attach randomly to cake with damp brush. To make top drape, cut out a 16 x 7 in. piece of white fondant.

Step 7

Roll out red fondant and cut 16 x 3/4 in. strips; attach to white piece with damp brush, spacing evenly. Lightly roll fondant to attach strips.

Step 8

Position drape, starting in center of 6 in. cake and sweeping down and around to bottom. Gather into folds and pinch together at end.

Step 9

For bottom drape, cut an 18 x 7 in. piece of white fondant and 18 x 3/4 in. strips in red. Repeat as for top drape and position. Insert star "fireworks".

Soaring Spirit! Cake is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a friend for his 4th of July party. It was my first time making a cake with a drape unless you count the Wilton class. The cake was easy to put together and fun to decorate. I had a little trouble with the drape because of my inexperience, but it still turned out wonderful. I would consider this a great go to cake for patriotic holidays because little preparation was needed; a few stars to cut out and the coloring of the fondant. It was easy to color the fondant with my Wilton colors. Because of the dark colors of the fondant, it was easy to put my friends favorite chocolate cake, filled with chocolate mousse and covered with chocolate buttercream under it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was My first Cake using Fondant. I found the drape to be easiest to work with if the fondant wasnt to thick,plus I some what shaped the drape before placeing on Cake. I also found that when placeing drape, let in fall in place naturally. Looked better and much eiser forMe.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This cake is a simple but will come out like you spent a week on the decorations. This has been ordered from me severall times and I alway let them know that you cannot have it out side in July because of the heat or the colors will run if it hot and stickey weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Making this cake was kind of easy but the draping of the flag was difficult and I didn't like the way it looked. I removed the draping flag from the cake and instead of just using only white stars I used red as well. It look great even without the draped flag! =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved making this cake! The drape was somewhat tricky, but I managed to get it done in my own way. The stars on straws added a clever touch. Everyone loved the cake. The blue color was beautiful, and the cake added tremendously to our 4th of July celebration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did this cake when I was just learning to work with fondant (2nd time) but it turned out so cute! I love the idea! I put sparklers in mine to add a little more pop since we had it at a firework block party

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I really want to try this. I gave it a four as I know it will take some time, but overall it looks relatively simple. I really love all the Wilton patriotic theme cakes and treats!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Draping the flag was very difficultand the smallest star cookie cutter i could find was the height of the tiers but it turned out ok.
