My son-in-law is retiring from the Navy in September and fell in love with the cake that is draped with a rolled fondant flag. Can anyone give me some hints on making the flag? Is in rolled out in strips and put together??? Is it painted? I have one day to make everything because I am going to Seattle from Phoenix. I know that I can make the Navy Seal ahead of time, but I don't want to have to "practice" with the rolled fondant flag when I get there. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I just made a fondant flag for the top of an AF retirement cake. I rolled out the white fondant, cut the red stripes and the blue. I glued the red stripes and blue onto the white fondant. Then I carefully rolled it on my fondant rolling pin and placed it on the cake, I rippled the flag as I unrolled it so it wasn't laying totally flat. I used my 5-point star tip and made 50 stars on the blue with royal icing. I haven't had a chance to post the picture, but everyone at the retirement ceremony was in awe.

Good luck. It only took me about an hour so you should be good.
