Christmas Countdown Day 6
Another polymer food make today, this time it's candy canes. These are a fairly recent visitor to British shores from America, though we have similar peppermint sweets and sticks of rock, these candy canes are now becoming popular at Christmas.
To make them is fairly easy, just take two thin sausage shapes of red and white Sculpy or Fimo, and lay them next to one another on a clean, smooth, flat surface. Slowly roll the two together and they will become one long stripy stick, which you can then cut to size. Curve one end over to look like a cane. Bake in the oven as instructed. Once cooled they can be used to decorate Christmas trees, or fill stockings!
