Cotton Candy is made?
candy is simple to make if you have the right equipment.
To make cotton candy you need:
(coloring and flavoring can be mixed with the sugar)
- Heat to
melt the sugar into a liquid state
Spinning Head which uses centrifugal force to force the
sugar to the screen
Screen with very small holes which the liquefied sugar
is forced through to form the feathery threads
- A bowl
or pan to catch the feathery threads.
is poured into the spinning head which contains heaters
located near the screen. As the head spins, it forces the
sugar into the heater which melts the sugar into a liquid
state. The liquid sugar passes through the small holes in
the screen and as soon as it touches the surrounding air,
it solidifies into feathery threads which are collected in
the pan. A paper stick is used to gather the threads onto
a manageable cone by rotating it around the spinning head.
