Spun sugar is making a comeback. Who would’ve imagined that the classic carnival treat would gain Insta-stardom as a fun—and fluffy—food craze? From cradling ice cream cones to topping lemonade and even pizza, here’s how restaurants and cafés around the world are showcasing colorful clouds of cotton candy.
At Cottoni in Perth, Australia, fairy floss ice cream is made using flavored scoops and scrumptious sundae toppings surrounded by heavenly cotton candy pillows.
At California’s Maji Cafe, color-changing “Snow Lemonade” is served as a giant puff over a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade. When you pour the signature Blue Butterfly Pea Flower Tea on top, the cotton candy melts and the mixture creates a vibrant purple drink.
