As sugar spinning didn't go as well as originally planned, some might say I have cheated but I see it as a practical solution. Here is my candy floss machine! It is meant for ages 12+ but the size is perfect to create small and different flavoured sticks of candy floss at at time.
Made them quite large, these initial sticks used 3 teaspoons of granulated white sugar.
You need this type of sugar as it has a relatively low melting point and has a glossy finish once melted. It also mixes well with flavourings and juices once heated.
