Place wrapped candy cane in microwave.
Heat it for 15-20 seconds checking periodically after 15 seconds.
The curved part of the candy cane will be stiffer than the the straight part.
When candy cane is warm and flexible, take out and start forming desired form with your fingers. Some sections can be hot to touch. Hold the shape until the candy begins to harden within a minute.
Note: If heated too long, the plastic covering may melt apart and ooze candy.
