Curling petal cane

Curling petal cane

Here is one of my latest canes (sorry photo isn’t the best, was in a rush). I have made it into a special gift for a special friend (I’ll show you that next time). It’s from a tutorial I bought and reviewed ages ago. I never made any more at the time as I had plenty of new tutorials to try out so it was nice to come back to it.
