Making Summer Sizzle Cake
Good times explode when cakes convert to firecrackers. Turn Jelly Roll Pan cakes appropriately dazzling with fondant stars and stripes and fuses created from Patriotic Foil Pix.
Each cake serves 12.
In advance: Roll out red, white and blue fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut 3 white stars using smallest nesting cookie cutter. Cut 2 red and 1 blue stars using 2nd largest nesting cookie cutter.
Let stars dry. Crush Cake Sparkles? to a finer texture with rolling pin. Brush tops of red and blue stars with water and sprinkle with matching color sparkles.
Bake and cool 3 jelly roll cakes. Fill, roll and prepare each for
rolled fondant. Cover cakes with fondant.
Using Cutter/Embosser, cut out 1/2 in. wide strips of red and blue fondant; attach diagonally on each cake, about 1 1/4 in. apart, with damp brush.
Using smallest Cut-Out?, cut approximately 32 red or blue stars for each cake. Attach small stars between strips with damp brush.
Using blue FoodWriter?, write message on white stars. Attach white to large colored stars with buttercream; attach to cakes. Insert Foil Pix® in cake tops.
Position remaining stars around cakes.

This cake is a great way to get started in fondant: it requires only straight lines that are easy to roll out, and stars to cut out with a cutter. The foil topper really makes this cake stand out! This cake looks amazing and is such a nice departure from a traditional cake--prepare to get many compliments!
