500 gram cakes

If you want to take your firework show to the limit, set your sights on some 500 Gram Cakes, the largest allowable grouping of multi-shot repeating aerial displays on the consumer fireworks market today. Basically, a pre-assembled and pre-loaded firework show in one convenient block, cakes just require you to light one fuse and then sit back to watch the choreographed pyrotechnic entertainment at your leisure. Incorporating 500 gram cakes into your event, alone or with other categories of fireworks, can significantly reduce the amount of time spent planning, timing and setting up your own series of projectiles. 

Five hundred gram cakes are certainly not edible but will make a pyro-technician of any ability begin to salivate at the mere sight. Probably that is because the bigness of these big boys just got bigger! It wasn’t that long ago that federal firework laws limited these types of fireworks to just 200 grams of the powders and chemicals used to create a pyrotechnic effect. But now the maximum threshold on cakes has been raised to 500 grams as long as other specific manufacturing specs are being followed – such as maintaining a ½” distance between tubes, keeping the tubes mounted on a base, capping each effect at 40 grams of compound with 6 grams of powdered lift charge.

While the collective explosive amount of 500 gram cakes are always the same – 500 grams – the exact assortment of effects that fire out can differ in many ways – height, angle, color, noise, and other variable design effects. Each sequential shot fired into the air can be exactly the same or they can all be different, it just depends on the 500 gram cakes you pick out. You can find 500 gram cakes ranging from 9-shots up to 36 shots and even more. The 9-shot variety, also known as a “nine on a board”, have become quite popular for their impressive breaks in the sky. Typically, 500 gram cakes are quite large and cumbersome due to their inherent manufacturing requirements – but well worth their weight if you are looking for a no-brainer fireworks show.  

When lighting your 500 gram cakes and other fireworks, keep public safety a top priority by following the local laws and stipulations regarding the use of these items in your particular jurisdiction.  Also, for personal safety, always follow the manufacturer’s directions for lighting your fire works. That disclaimer being said, have a bang up time!
