Very nice!!  (Alert though... caning is addictive!  Shocked Grin)

I'm so into making canes now! I've been scouring the net for new tutorials. If anyone knows of any good ones, I would be grateful if you would point me in the right direction!

Here are a few places that should help:

message I wrote on this board awhile back re the "easiest" canes to start with, as well as summary messages re reducing canes and making "floating" canes:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178586.msg1852235#msg1852235
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315990.msg3637917#msg3637917
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118142.msg1130574#msg1130574
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160875.msg2654560#msg2654560

There's loads more info and tutorials (and examples, variations, etc) for making all kinds of canes at my website, as well:
...many specific canes: http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/canes--instructions.htm
...food canes (as well as food sculpts): http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/miniatures.htm
...info about making and slicing canes successfully: http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/Canes--general.htm
..."reducing" canes: http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/canes--reducing.htm


Oh, and once you learn how to make a few simple canes, you can also do what I call "slice painting" with them too (very thin slices of canes placed onto a clay background, as an "image" or painting).  
Here are some examples of that:

for me, the ones with photos are the best, I am very much a visual learner!

lol... I think that's true for everyone!  

Keep in mind though that on the pages (at my site) without actual photos on the page, there will be links to many-many lessons that do have photos and/or video (some of those links I included in my reply, for example).

Taking photos as you go is a great idea though, anytime!

I love the fruit canes! I like the colors that you used too.
