Project Instructions

Two days in advance, make flame. Tint 3 oz. fondant yellow and add ½ teaspoon Gum-Tex™. Roll out 3/16" thick. Draw and cut out flame; let dry on cornstarch-dusted cake board 24 hours. Brush fondant flame lightly with water and add yellow sugar. Let set. Thin fondant with a small amount of water and attach lollipop stick to back. Let set 24 hours.

Bake five one-layer rounds and cool. Place on cake boards cut to fit and prepare for fondant covering. Divide fondant into 12oz. portions and tint rose, yellow, blue, green and violet with a little rose added. Cover cakes with fondant. Position one dowel rod through all five tiers. Roll out remaining tinted fondant 3/16" thick, set up cutter with zigzag wheel and 1/3" spacer. Cut 18" long strips and attach to cake tiers at seams with damp brush. Bottom border strip is cut in half horizontally.

Roll out white fondant 3/8" thick and cut smallest rounds. Attach to cake with damp brush. Insert flame into cake top.
