Debuted as ‘fairy floss’ at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904, cotton candy has become a staple in our childhood memories. However, spun sugar has been transforming confections since the 1400’s. Considered a delicacy, the process was very involved and quite dangerous and usually only available to those of royalty.
But thank goodness for modern times! Dried sugary wisps are wonderful additions to all your special events. Spun sugar can be molded, shaped, swirled, twirled, twisted or weaved and adds depth and texture to an otherwise plain dessert.
