3. Pour the white crystal sugar into a shallow dish.

4. Place the frosting in the piping bag fitted with the #104 decorator tip. Pipe ribbons of frosting onto the chocolate-coated snack cake; rotate and change orientation as you pipe. Leave a small portion of the chocolate visible at the top 1/4 of the snack cake. After piping frosting onto each cake, lay their backs onto the crystal sugar. This prevents the frosting from sticking to the parchment paper.

5. Use dots of frosting on the backs of the candy dots to affix them to the chocolate portion at the top 1/4 of the cake. Draw 'pupils' on the candy dots using a food color marker or a paint brush dipped in food color.
