How a gigantic cotton candy flower is made

Layer upon layer of heated and spun sugar is shaped into pastel-colored patterns that eventually form what international street and gourmet food YouTube channel Aden Films calls a “massive, massive, massive” cotton candy flower. The price for this dessert, made in ten minutes by this skilled street vendor in Chongqing, China: 50 RMB (Chinese Yuan Ren Ming Bi) or around $8 dollars.

There are more videos about sugar on this site, including liquid sugar painting of a Chinese candy dragon, Amezaiku (飴細工) Japanese Candy Sculptures by Ame Yoshihara, Sugar: Hiding in plain sight and Why do carrots taste sweeter in the winter?

Bonus: More street vendor videos.
