Candy Floss Butter Cream:

  • 1. Using an electric mixer, mix in butter until fluffy.
  • 2. Then add cream, candy floss flavour, powdered sugar and pink or blue food colouring, until light and fluffy.


Nothing brings a candy floss cupcake to life more than decorations, and we have the perfect decoration to compliment your cupcake, you will just need:

  • 1. Pieces of Candy floss
  • 2. Lollipop Stick


Take the pieces of candy floss and shape into the size you want. Get the lollipop sticks and run it under water to help to candy floss to stick, then put the stick into the cotton candy.

Once the cupcakes have cooled down along with the frosting, dip the candy frost sticks when they are ready to serve.
