Does anyone else love thin as air, wisps of nothing spun sugar cotton candy? Pale pink sugar threads fluffing and puffing up like a beehive wig, melting into your tongue like magic.
We took Teddy to our city's annual fair this past summer and I felt inspired by the cotton candy sticks in pale bubblegum pink and light turquoise.
Still, I felt inspired by those beautiful colours and made this adorable pastel cotton candy coloured cake instead.
COTTON CANDY CAKE MINI TUTORIAL
1. Using your favourite vanilla cake mix, divide batter into two medium bowls. I love Rosie at Sweetapolita's fantastic recipes for both cake and buttercream.
2. Use a tiny dab of pink gel colour for the cotton candy pink and a tiny dab of sky blue colour for the cotton candy blue. Mix batter gently until coloured.
3. Pour batter into four greased and parchment paper lined cake pans - I used 7 inch round cake pans.
4. Bake according to recipe's instructions.
Come on, take a bite! Who could resist such cute pastel cake layers?
