I’ve never actually tried the Japanese candy Pocky, but I know a few people who adore it and would surely love to have this cake for their next birthday celebration.
I love the string on the side, which is used to tie it up and keep the Pocky sticks in place as the frosting sets. I suppose you can keep it on there as an extra accessory for the dessert or use a colored ribbon to match the color theme for your event, like a baby shower for a little girl.
