I am making an Army tank cake for my son's birthday party for tomorrow. My issue I am having is that I want to make it fire. I am not sure how to accomplish this. I thought about useing some type of small roamed candle but I am not sure! If ANYONE has ANY ideas I am open to trying any of them. I have made cakes move before but never fire. Thanks. icon_smile.gif

Not a clue...but I'll give your post a bump so maybe it will hang around long enough to get some type of answer. Cat

Honestly, I would not do more than put a candle in the end. One of those that sparkles and makes noise.. I wouldnt put a roman candle in it- those have a 'kick' just like a gun, when the gunpowder inside goes off they kinda 'jump' and would more than likely tear out of the cake.

How about using a sparkler?

Like one of those trick candles that are hard to blow out, put one in the end of the cannon tube thing.
