One of the most exciting developments in recent years is the fan cake. Here, the tubes are angled slightly so that the shots are sent out to the left and right of the firework in addition to straight up. But even better, each row of shots can be fused to fire simultaneously. Fan cakes thus provide a stunning barrage of multiple shots. The effect created is near-professional. They make ideal finale fireworks to end your show. Where a fan cake fires its shots in a chaser sequence from left to right and vice versa, it is known as a “Z” firing cake.
