Cotton Candy! October 29, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — zellner @ 10:04 pm

Today, Eric and I rented the cotton candy machine for the festival our church is hosting this weekend.  We needed to pre-make all of it.  This afternoon, with Grammy here to help man the children, we started spinning cotton candy in our dining room 🙂

Someone told Eric to wear long sleeves and gloves and I am so glad that they did.  He was covered in pink and blue sugar by the end of the day.  We are so thankful that a friend came to help when we called.  Anna brought her baby over and helped us for 2 hours.

At 25 cents each, these are going to be going fast!

    Nice! And can I just say, on behalf of larger families of kids who love cotton candy, thanks for keeping the price at something reasonable?

    Megan- that is so funny! I have had two larger families tell me their kids have not even had cotton candy b/c it is usually $3 or something. I am afraid I won’t have enough!

  3. Mary Says:

    I hope you piled your kids into the cotton candy for a picture. Looks like fun.

  4. Renee Says:

    Once upon a time in a land far away…I had to make cotton candy all day one Saturday for a store promo….When I worked at Hill’s Grocery. I was covered in the stuff. Not real sure how much made it on to the paper sticks…. Love Dad/Popo
