Yummy Watermelon
There were so many complicated ways to make this cane so I decided to do it my way.

Sorry about the bad pictures and the long steps. Ask away if you have any questions.

ENJOY!

Once I tried doing a very simple sushi cane and I had some problems with cutting, I hope that now, with your fridge advice, I can do this watermelon one without messing all up Happy
