Cotton candy is one of those foods that is loaded with nostalgia: the billowy clouds of spun sugar conjure visions of idyllic childhood summers, county fairs and carnivals. Now, we don't want to confuse the experience with the product, (after all, there are more realistic pitfalls to cotton candy, like its saccharine sweetness and the sticky, pastel-colored hands it leaves you with) there's no denying that cotton candy is just a happy sort of food. But it gets even happier in cupcake form. Case in point: a buttery vanilla cupcake topped with cotton candy-infused pink buttercream frosting, topped with even more cotton candy--a totally sweet cupcake experience!
