How to Decorate a Candy Cane Cake

Plays: 6354

In this video, you’ll see how to turn a plain vanilla sheet cake (homemade or from a box) into a show-stopping candy cane cake that’s perfect for all your holiday get-togethers. The cake shape is cut using a paper pattern, and stacked double-decker with plenty of frosting. Once the second layer of frosting is applied, the fun begins: apply red stripes along the whole length of the cake, and add a peppermint twist by patting broken minty candies onto the sides of the cake.
