    Taking apart a cake no longer makes it a 1.4 item, but doing so on your own property, who cares.
    Taking cakes apart is not all that hard, but you need some skill as to what to do with the tubes later.

    Not quite...it becomes non-CPSC compliant and could be considered "manufacturing"

    I have done this before, it can be a headache and I would not recommend it for someone that does not have much pyro experiance. It can be very dangerous altering cakes in this manner. The internal fusing can be very unpredicatable, and could be unsafe for yourself and your audience.

    If you don't have a boatload of prior experience doing so I would not chance altering a cake. It's to unpredictable when dealing with internal fusing. Please don't become one of the anti-pyro lobby statistics we read about.

    I do have a day job.

    Talking about taking fireworks apart is against forum rules.

    Say goodbye.
    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
