Cotton candy is pretty damn magical. I mean, it’s pastel colored, is usually associated with fairs or carnivals, and the cloud-like, airy texture is basically what your sugar dreams are made of. But prepare to have all your spun-sugar expectations shattered, because a man in china can turn cotton candy into flowers. Oh yeah — you heard me right.
