dragged out and cleaned up my handy dandy toaster oven this afternoon.

first test baking (just to make sure that everything still worked):

test baking

since that went okay i baked up an old cane that i had:

watermelon cane

i had always read that canes sliced so much easier once they were baked, that you could get more uniform size and whatnot….

watermelon beads

I’m apparently broken when it comes to cutting anything of uniform size, lol!
It does slice up pretty nicely once it’s just started to cool, but i don’t like how it leaves the surface scratched up and cloudy. i think i prefer the way they look when i’ve sliced them before baking. less “finishing” to be done then!
