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 ideas...you're sure to think up more once you get started!
