Before you break out the Twizzlers, you need to prime your cake. Spread a thin layer of frosting to seal in the crumbs—the pros call this a “crumb coat.” Let the icing harden for 30 minutes in the fridge. Add a topcoat and you’re good to go.

1. For a graphic pattern, slice rainbow-coloured Twizzlers into small, equal pieces, making a diagonal cut on the ends (they should look like penne pasta).

2. Place the pieces on the sides of the cake so they form a chevron pattern.

3. Cut Twizzlers crosswise to make cute polka dots.
