A quick introduction to fireworks
Fireworks are great fun, but all these different names can be confusing. We’ve given you a quick rundown of the most popular types of fireworks.
Cake: A cake is a multi-shot firework which has its effects in tubes, so they are aligned horizontally, so you’d have tubes side-by-side, rather than stacked on top of each other.
(Roman) candle: A firework with its effects packed in a cardboard tube, as opposed to the cake’s horizontal make-up.
Finale: Fireworks which are kept for the end and are noisier than the others.
Fountain: A static firework that creates a fountain effect and a crackly sound when ignited.
Mine: All of the elements of the firework are lit at the same time and shoot upward from a card tube.
Rocket: A firework that takes off and displays its effects in the air.
Wheel: Also, known as the Catherine Wheel, these fireworks spin quickly to create a wheel of sparks.
