They are not an easy thing to make. The white fondant is rolled and cut to size, then masked off with masking or painters tape and airbrushed red. Tape is removed carefully and then the fondant is picked up and draped in folds over your cake. The blue section is done the same way but with a light blue fondant, rolled and then airbrushed solid Navy blue and draped over a small triangle shaped cake behind the striped area of the flag. The white fondant stars are attached to the blue after it has been draped in place.

I was messing around one day trying to do a flag. I rolled out my white fondant, cut to desired size, then rolled out red fondant and cut red stripes, I then placed them on white fondant where I wanted them and put a piece of parchment paper on top and rolled with rolling pin. It worked great, it looked like all one piece. Just be careful to roll the same direction, not back and forth and apply even pressure.. Another alternative would be to use your pasta machine.
