Use white icing and fill in the window on the welder's mask using the same size star tip.

Make yellow icing and use round tip, size #5 to make sparks lines at the end of the sticks.

Sprinkle edible yellow glitter on the sparks.

Using round tip, size #5 and red icing (or the color of your choice), write the message on the upper left hand side of the cake.
