Cotton Candy (also referred to as Fairy Floss...Why? I'm not sure. But I kinda like it) brings back memories of my childhood every time I see it....carnivals, the ferris wheel, and aimlessly walking around a festival eating way too much sugar and junk. Cotton candy is one of those things that you never get too old for.
This past weekend, I went to the lovely and fabulous bridal shower of my equally lovely and fabulous best friend Nicole. To my delight, when dessert time came around, they served cotton candy! My 32-year-old self reached over to the middle of the table to pull some off, while my inner 10-year-old self yelled "YIPPEEE!!! COTTON CANDY!"
Since cotton candy comes in so many flavors and can be molded into so many shapes, there are infinite possibilities to serve it at your next party or event....no matter how casual or fancy that party may be.
If you are having a dessert bar or candy bar at your party, I love the idea of this fluffy cotton candy tree. Guests can pull little baggies of the sweet treat off and either eat them on the spot or take them home for later
Not up for baking? How about these cotton candy "cupcakes" for your next party?
Stick your cotton candy on top of glow sticks and you have a treat that doubles as ambiance and decor!
Just for adults- Put cotton candy in martini glasses and then let your guests go to the bar to get whatever drink they like. The cotton candy will make their drink a sweet and new experience!
A great take-away favor, or even as part of a centerpiece, you cannot go wrong with cotton candy, whether you are having a party for 2-year-olds or 80-year-olds!
