My wife absolutely loves Twizzlers. Without exaggeration, she eats the strawberry strands all the time. I have know my wife for 30 years and this love has never waned. I have vivid recollections of her and her father working through bags while watching a movie or driving to the orchard. When I saw the opportunity to create a sponsored post on Twizzlers, I about fell off my chair. I could not wait to tell her about this opportunity.
But what can you make with Twizzlers? They do not melt. They do, however, have great color, texture and consistency. So I thought they would be great in a cake. By using these Twizzlers Twists, I could make a white cake and the colors of the Twizzlers would totally stand out. This cake was easy to assemble and really does not take a lot of ingredients. If you are looking for some summer fun for your 4th of July, you gotta try this Twizzlers Twists Cake.
You still have plenty of time to make this cake. Just run to your local Walmart store and find the candy aisle that housing all the different Twizzlers choices from strawberry lemon; rainbow; pull N peel red, white and blue; licorice; strawberry (still my wife’s favorite); to cherry pull N peel. They even have cherry bites now and they have chocolate. Which flavors do you want? I bought way more than I could use. My wife was one happy camper. Do you like to peel them apart? I think they are as fun to play with as they are to eat. Can you hear your mother saying “don’t play with your food”? In this case, tell her that Peter at Feed Your Soul Too said it is OK.
I used a cake mix for my recipe. So this recipe comes together super fast. If you are new to baking, this recipe is really easy to follow and I am sure you will delight the kids and adults at your holiday celebration.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 - 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups confectioner sugar, sifted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 - 6 strands strawberry pull N peel Twizzlers Twists
- 4 - 6 strands chocolate Twizzlers Twists
- For the cake, follow the instructions on the box.
- Let the cake cool, at least 30 minutes and overnight is even better.
- In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla with a stand mixer.
- Beat for a good couple of minutes to get the frosting good and fluffy.
- Begin by cutting the Twizzlers into approximately 1 - 1 1/2" long pieces.
- Take the cut pieces and stick into the cake in a circular design. Start with the chocolate pieces and place them about 2" in from the outside of the 1st cake layer.
- Place them about 1" apart and just go all the way around the cake until you get back to where you started.
- Next, take the strawberry flavor and follow the same circular pattern. These were placed about midway through the cake.
- Finish by taking a few more of the chocolate pieces and place in the center of the cake layer.
- Next, cover the 1st cake layer with a good amount of the cream cheese frosting.
- Top the frosting with the 2nd cake layer.
- Repeat the same pattern of Twizzlers Twists in the 2nd cake layer.
- Finish the assembly by frosting the top and sides of the cake.
- The final touch is to chop each of the Twizzlers Twists pretty finely.
- Sprinkle all over the top of the cake.
- Serve and enjoy!
The cake prior to baking and the completed cream cheese frosting.
Take the Twizzlers and cut them to the size of each of the cake layers. Then, the cut pieces can be inserted randomly, or as I have done, in a circular fashion.
Then, the layers are built by adding the frosting, the next cake layer and inserting in the Twizzlers.
Finish by frosting the whole cake and topping with totally chopped up Twizzlers.
And look how fun the inside of each piece looks.
