Fireworks For The Fourth Cake is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using the different pans for this cake made it one of the easiest to make! The flower dots on stems were simple, dried quickly, and made for an impressive presentation! Making the 'firework sprays' a day or two ahead allowed for plenty of time and no stress to put the cake together.
