This Fourth of July, pull out all the stops! Show your spirit with a three-layer cake surrounded by a flag-waving band of cookie patriots created with Girl and Boy Perimeter Cutters and topped by star cookie skyrockets.
Make 17 girl and 15 boy cookies: Tint portions of dough brown and copper to create a variety of skintones (reserve remaining dough). Cut girls and boys; bake and cool. Using royal icing, outline and pipe in clothing with tip 3 (smooth with finger dipped in cornstarch). Pipe facial features and hair with tips 2 and 3.
Make star cookies: Tint reserved dough red, white and blue. Using two smallest cutters, cut five small and three larger stars; bake and cool. Attach stick to back with royal icing, cut sticks for smaller cookies 8 to 10 in. Print tip 1 message in buttercream. Cut and curl ribbon streamers; tie to sticks.
Prepare 1-layer cakes for stacked construction. Pipe tip 7 bead bottom border on 14 in. cake and tip 4 bead bottom border on other cakes. Insert star pops. Position kids on cake sides; attach flags to back of hands.
Uncle Sam is the man! Do him proud for the 4th of July and all summer long, with our Little Hero Pan, topped by his signature top hat created from a cookie. A spirited shape for any All-American occasion.

The detail work is amazing on this cake, from the arrangement of the stars to the race of the little people. Its a great idea to place the little people on the 3 tier cake to make them stand out. I would probably have given the little people more culture. Since our symbolic phrase "united we stand" is also with people from different cultures and nationalities, it would be nice to add a hat here or a ornament there from different people around the globe that are in the united states of america.
