So I'm attempting to recreate this specific lollipop for a class. I was able to model the lollipop, but I'm unable to recreate the twist with 4 colors. I tried modeling 4 elongated cubes and using a simple deform to twist them. I got the result I wanted but it wouldn't work if I tried making it follow the spiral path. I also did a screw modifier on a circle and didn't know how to make it follow the spiral path either.
How would you approach this in the most efficient way?
