Despite the popular belief that cotton candy was invented during the 20th century, historians can trace the origins of cotton candy back to 15th century Italy. Cotton candy was originally known as spun sugar, as it was melted in a pan and spread over an upside down bowl using a fork. As you might imagine, this way of creating cotton candy was inefficient, contrary to the few minutes it takes today to create cotton candy in a cotton candy machine. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that two candy makers created the first cotton candy machine, which used centrifugal force to push melted sugar through a screen, which created thin strands of sugar. The new candy was then moved from the cotton candy machine into a bowl, where it was spun around cardboard cones while waiting to be served.
In 1904, cotton candy was introduced to the world by William Morrison and John C. Wharton as fairy floss during the famous St. Louis World Fair. This new invention quickly became a popular candy and shortly after a candy store picked up a cotton candy machine to start selling Morrison and Wharton’s fairy floss.
Cotton candy machines eventually came automated during the late 20th century, which made it possible to create, package and sell cotton candy on a large scale. The biggest revolution in cotton candy machines is their ability to make many different colors and flavors. Originally, cotton candy came in plain vanilla and there were few other options for flavor and color. You can now get cotton candy in the iconic pink, blue, purple, yellow, orange and many other colors.
Making this delicious treat at home is not a hard task when you have a personal cotton candy machine. You can purchase flossugar to start your very own cotton candy stand right from your kitchen. After you master the art of achieving the perfect cotton candy texture, then you can focus on rolling your cotton candy onto a paper cone. Experts recommend wetting the edges of the cone to get the sugar to stick to the paper. One the sugar is stuck to the paper, then you can roll the cone in the opposite direction until you achieve the size you desire.
Before investing in a commercial cotton candy machine for your next party, you can try your hand at cotton candy making with a personal cotton candy machine.
