Flavour Profile: Cotton Candy

cotton-candy-macaron

Aren’t these beautiful!! If we do say so ourselves…  Hot on the heels of our Bubble Gum Macarons, we’re keeping things super sweet this weekend, with Cotton Candy Macarons! Time for a fun food fact: the machine spun cotton candy we know today was apparently created by a dentist. It hit the scene at the 1904 world fair, where it was called “Fairy Floss”. Cute! (Spun sugar, though, dates to as far back as sometime in the Italian 15th century.) This seems like the perfect time to share some work from American artist Will Cotton—and not only because of his name. Check out these fantastical cotton candy skyscapes!
