Cotton Candy snow (candy floss snow)

Cotton candy has always seemed magical to me, it’s wispy charm appealed to me as a child and I was always drawn toward cotton candy stalls at school fêtes or at fairgrounds.  Now, I’ve realised just how much it looks like snow and what a wonderfully decorative feature it would make a a Frozen themed party.  It is also quite versatile in it’s use, from desserts, to drinks and of course easy, child-pleasing Frozen-themed party favours!

This strikingly beautiful children’s mocktail is simple. First, freeze water in snowflake shaped ice cube trays before the party. When it’s time to serve, be sure to use clear glasses so the kids can enjoy the visual appeal. Place the frozen snowflake ice cubes in the bottom of the glass. Next, add blue cotton candy in the glass, then pour water over it and watch the magic happen!

Cotton candy making machines

If you are going to use a lot of cotton candy at a party, say if you can giving away 30 cotton candy favours, it makes a lot of sense to invest in a cotton candy maker, which are available to buy at around $45.  You could also then decorate your whole Frozen-themed party venue with cotton candy snow!
