Cotton Candy

I love cotton candy. Yes, I’m 28 and should never eat something so full of sugar (ok, it’s entirely sugar). For a while I felt like I couldn’t buy it because I was too old, and now I have nieces I can buy it for (or at least I can say I’m buying it for them). Which means that maybe I could have some cotton candy at the wedding… you know, for the kids.

You know kids are dying for people to cut the cake, but this will help keep them full of sugar and totally entertained for the time between ceremony and cutting the cake. These cute designs were created by Hostess with the Mostess. She does everything I wish I knew how to.

And then I started to think that people have chocolate fountains, but I’m not really a chocolate girl, so why not a cotton candy machine? Yes, I can appreciate a good chocolate covered strawberry, but I’d rather have the fluffy goodness of some fresh cotton candy. So I started researching cotton candy machine rental, and it’s actually really inexpensive.

I wanted a cart:

But I can’t find one that is under $400, and that’s just too much.

I did find this cotton candy machine sans cart for only $35 on eBay.

I’m sold. I can’t wait!!

Are you including any foods in your wedding that are a throwback to your childhood?

    Dude, you are NEVER too old for cotton candy!(Interesting fact, in South Africa we call it Candyfloss, and our Afrikaans brethren (and sistren) call it “Spoek asem”, which translates as “ghost breath”. I love that name!).

    Anyway, I would be totally psyched if I went to a wedding with candyfloss/ cotton candy!

    LOVE this idea. I inquired about it for my wedding, but the humidity in florida makes cotton candy shrink in minutes : (

    Mm, cotton candy…. You could probably buy or rent a cheap little cart to put the machine on, too, if you wanted. =)

    Hey ladies,

    I used the exact cotton candy machine Miss Frozen Yogut posted above (the standing one) as a cotton candy bar for my wedding a few weeks ago. It was a huge hit for my pink and brown wedding!

    We are selling the machine because we are running out of space in our NYC apartment.

    Asking price: $275 for NYC/NJ/CT/MA

    Must pick up machine in Manhattan or for addition charge, we can deliver it to NJ/CT/MA. Please inquire for details.

    This is an amazing machine and retail value is $400 plus delivery charges. I’m including free cotton candy floss too! Convo me for photos and details!
