Performing to an exceptional standard for over a minute, Hercules is arguably Brothers Pyrotechnics’ finest achievement to date. It’s one that we’ve been fans of at Galactic for some time. With its green tails, multi-coloured waves and an explosive finale, it’s easy to see why.

This mighty cake is a former winner of ‘firework of the year’ at the National Firework Awards, so it’s understandable that it’s earned a superb reputation. If you’re in any doubt over whether Hercules worth the outlay, simply check out the video below!
