A firework cake, or barrage is a type of firework where multiple tubes are fused together. This means you only need to light the firework once and multiple shots will appear, making it an easy, yet impressive firework choice for your display!

Any good firework display needs to look fantastic, but more important than that, it has to be safe. That’s why our range of barrage fireworks and cakes are the ideal option for a safer firework display that doesn’t compromise on the wow factor.

Firework cakes are multi-shot fireworks that only need to be ignited once, reducing the amount of contact time required in close quarters, and increasing the length of display time for the perfect addition to your firework display. They are constructed using multiple cardboard tubes which are fused together and connected by a single ignition point, meaning that once lit the individual tubes will be set off, one after another for an impressive, longer-lasting display.

Each of our barrage box fireworks have a personality of their own, and no two are the same. So, if you’re hoping to create a unique firework display to be remembered – you’ve come to the right place!

Easy to light, and impressive to watch; our selection of high-quality multi-shot fireworks will be the perfect accompaniment to your event.

How long do firework cakes last?

Naturally, the length of time that a firework cake lasts will vary depending on the size of the firework itself. Some of our barrage fireworks have hundreds of individual fireworks in one box, whilst others may have less. Typically, though, a firework cake can last anywhere between 20-40 seconds before going out, although it’s possible for some to last up to a minute or more.

What is a barrage firework?

As the name might suggest, a barrage firework is a large multi shot firework that releases multiple fireworks off in quick succession. These are one of the most popular kinds of fireworks for big displays as they offer an extra level of safety (due to only needing to be lit once), as well as looking fantastic. There are a wide variety of barrage fireworks that we offer, from the famous Celtic cakes through to the well-loved Blackcat collection – so depending on your specific requirements you’re sure to be spoilt for choice.

What is a 500g cake?
