  • Bake the chocolate cakes and let them cool down completely. 
  • Place one cake on a cake stand and top it off with icing.
  • Then, gently press the other cake on top and frost the entire cake in icing. 
  • Stick red and green Twizzlers in an alternating pattern along the sides of the cake. Frosting works like a glue. You will need to cut the Twizzlers with  scissors to match the height of your cake. 
  • Tie a ribbon around the cake to hold the Twizzlers in place. I used 1 ribbon but to make it even more secure, I would suggest using 2 ribbons... one near the top and one near the base.
  • Fill the top of the cake with m&m candies, gum balls.
  • Cut up leftover Twizzlers into small pieces and spread them around the base of the cake. Enjoy! 


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
