Preparation:
Use an apple drill to remove 8 holes in total to the size of the waxine lights.

Make a stiff royal icing using the confectioner’s sugar, egg-white powder and 180 ml water. Divide into three unequal portions and colour it in green, pink and yellow with the gels (or in a colour you like). Keep a little royal icing behind for the tufts on the top of the cake. Always cover your royal icing in a bowl with a wet towel to prevent it from drying out!

Spread a layer of royal icing on the dummies with a palette knife, then smoothen and let it dry. Repeat with a second layer for better coverage. Stack the dummies together with some royal icing that serves as glue to keep the cake standing. Knead the fondant well, divide it into 8 portions and color it with the gels.

For the flag line you roll out various fondant colors to a thickness of about 1-2 mm and use the bunting cutter to stick out. Take a small piece of color of your choice, and roll it into a thin line with your hands. This will serve as the line that holds the flas. Glue the line with some piping gel against the cake. Then glue the flags with some piping gel against the line and add some fondant lines around where the waxine lights will be.

Roll out different colors of fondant thin again and cut out different circle sizes with the round cutters. Glue this with piping gel against your middle cake.

Assemble the multi ribbon cutter with a recess between the discs of about 0.5 cm. Roll out the fondant colors very thinly and lay two contrasting colors on each other and roll them together very briefly. Now use the multi ribbon cutter to cut out the pieces of fondant that will become the multicoloured twisted fondant on the highest layer of the cake. This way you get to see two colors in the turn. Glue the twisted pieces of fondant against the cake with some piping gel.

Color the royal icing that you have kept behind in two colors of your choice and put this together in a piping bag with # 1M. Spray generous tufts on top of the cake and insert small candles. Let it dry well again.
