I know Thanksgiving is the current focus for many, but I need to plan Christmas tree decorations. I work in research so would like to shape candy canes into question marks for our theme tree. Can that be done? I'm thinking about just softening purchased candy canes just enough to adjust their already crooked shape into the question mark and then squishing the end enough to a ball. Would this be best done in a low oven? a low wattage on the microwave? Has anyone tried this?
