The sight, the smell, the taste, and the nostalgia of cotton candy make it one of the best sweet treats out there. It’s nearly impossible to resist the wispy shimmering strands of sugar, especially when it’s made fresh.
Thanks to some talented vendors, our favorite sweet treat is now even more irresistible. Mixing street art with street food, cotton candy artists are able to sculpt the colorful fairy floss, turning it from a sugary cloud into a stunning work of art.
The artists start by twirling different colors of cotton candy around a stick to make the base of the art; then, using nothing more than a thin wooden stick, they proceed to transform the already appealing treat into a floral design. Using such a simple tool to create such intricate designs is an art form that anyone can appreciate - especially those of us with a sweet tooth.
Not all the designs are flowers either, by forming the fluffy filaments into different shapes the artists can make animals, cartoon characters, and more!
The various designs are almost too beautiful to eat- almost. It’s still cotton candy after all, and edible candy art is one of life’s simple joys!
