This is a real quick one! If you need to test on an API failure, it's super easy to make one with cy.server and cy.route like so.

it('Write a test for failed API response!', () => {
method: 'POST',
url: '/api/endpoint',
status: 500,
response: {}

There are so many other things you can do but you sure better be testing your failure conditions.
