Here's a link for a video (it's a series of videos but I've only added the one of the links, you will see the rest when you click the link)

Thanks for the link, but for some reason the video wont play i can hear sound but no pic. I had someone tell me that they painted on the lines, but i'm a little scared to do that, last time i painted on fondant it took forever to dry and i'm afrais by the time the 'paint' was dry the fondant would be too lol. I'm wondering if theres a way to make all the peices and then put them together and then put the flag on the cake.

Here's a recent thread on the topic, might be something in there to help??

Sorry the link didn't work for you. Here's the same video but from a different website, maybe this one will work for you.

Or maybe you could go to both sites and type in Fourth of July Cake in the search area and try to access it that way.

I also hope the link ceshell provided helps you out. Good Luck!
