Somewhen last year the company I work for, received a cotton candy maker as some kind of promotion gift. So I made some cotton candy at our last team meeting of the year. 🙂
Just add a tablespoon of granulated sugar into the centrifuge of the cotton candy maker and wait until sugar threads are forming. It might take a bit practise to form those fluffy cotton clouds.
Unfortunately, they “collapse” after a few minutes (see picture, on the right).
I tried to vary the sugar flavour and used sugar mixed with scraped out vanilla seeds and mixed with cinnamon. The smell was superb. But the vanilla seeds and the grounded cinnamon got burned, so the candy cotton didn’t taste so well.
Next time, I want to try mix sugar with liquid flavors or food coloring.
