Candy Cane Shapes

Red and white striped candy canes are already a fun, iconic shape, but they become even cooler when you use them to form custom words and shapes. The idea behind Candy Cane Shapes is so simple, you don't even need a recipe. Gently warm unwrapped candy canes with very low heat until they are soft, then bend, twist, and press them into whatever shapes you'd like. You can be literal and write words like holiday phrases or names, or create shapes like hearts, stars, or abstract spirals.

Once you've made them, what should you do with them? Well, aside from sitting back and admiring your crafty handiwork, small Candy Cane Shapes would be perfect cupcake toppers, while large shapes or phrases are perfect atop a holiday cake. Package them carefully in a clear cellophane bag, and you have a nice customized gift (or gift tag!). While they're still warm, poke a hole in the top of your candy cane shape and thread fishing wire or string through the top, and use them as custom tree ornaments. These are just a few're sure to think up more once you get started!
