The title pretty much says it all! I use the standard cut and restored rope routine but use a strawberry lace (a type of string shaped sweet if you didn't know) and get the spectator to bite it in the middle, showing two strands, then restore it with their magic kiss/blow.

I like to do impromptu stuff on my friends and strangers at bus stops, pubs etc, so getting out string and scissors would be a bit weird, but having a pack of strawberry laces is much more normal and the spectator can keep the strawberry lace too! It gets great reactions!

Anyone else heard of this being done - I'm kind of curious if I'm the first (I seriously doubt it).

Sometimes I do polo and strawberry lace tricks beforehand too in lieu of ring and shoelace tricks and it gives the whole routine a sweet theme.

One word: YUM! I'm not sure if this exact trick exists, but of course the theory can be applied to any rope/simialr though!

I do like the fact that you have a sweet theme trick, why not try Candyman (http://www.dudethatscoolmagic.co.uk/acatalog/Candyman-by-The-Enchantment.html#SID=10) or Drgaon breath (http://www.dudethatscoolmagic.co.uk/acatalog/Dragon-Breath-by-Brian-Platt.html#SID=10)??

Impromptu C&R effects are fun. In the old days I use to do a C&R with old video tape. Restore it with,"What would you expect, it's magnetic tape."
