Cotton Candy Cupcakes

Cupcakes and birthday parties go hand in hand. And no child can resist cotton candy -- adding cotton candy to any party will put it in the running for the 'best party ever'. Combining it with equally loved cupcakes is an unexpected treat that will delight your little swimmers, and keep you from worrying about the sun melting your beautifully decorated treats.  

  • 12 Cupcakes
  • 6 Cups of cotton candy
  • Damp sponge

Gentry dab the top of a cupcake with a damp sponge to moisten the top, and then place a 1/2 cup (or a handful) of cotton candy on the top of the cupcake.  

Be careful not to squeeze or press on the cotton candy as it will damage the fluffy effect of the candy.

Repeat the process with each cupcake.
