What do you think of when you think of a carnival or fair? For me, it’s the candy apples and cotton candy. There’s so much sugar at carnivals that you can smell the sweet before you enter. The perfect combination of fried sensations like, funnel cakes and french fries, the sausages with peppers and onions, popcorn and the sticky sugary treats bring a nostalgic welcome
Spring sort of puts me in a mood for these things, so what better time to bring cotton candy to the world of fake food confections? I’ve been working on the most yummy mini cotton candies here.
Some of them are without the little cones, but they smell so good! I think this is one of my most favorite scents for this time of year. You can see that they have the look of fluffiness that cotton candy has, but one or two in a tart warmer is going to really give that sweet, delicious cotton candy scent. You can find out more about these here.
If you’re looking for something edible, I understand.
I love the foods from the fair, so here’s a nice little funnel cake recipe that you can try at home. We absolutely love funnel cake at my house, and maybe you’ll love it too!
