How to Make It

1. Step
Make the cotton candy: Let the machine heat for 10 minutes before using, then turn off.
2. Step
Add the yellow hard candy and superfine sugar to the machine, then turn back on. When you see the cotton candy web begin, hold a wooden skewer in the center at a 45° angle. Move the skewer around the bowl and spin while the candy collects on the end, then move the skewer into a horizontal position and continue rotating to collect the rest of the candy, moving from side to side.
3. Step
Slide the white cotton candy from the skewer into a deep 6-inch (15 cm) round container and press down gently. Cover the container and refrigerate while you make the remaining colors.
4. Step
Let the machine heat up again for 5 minutes, then turn off. Add 2–3 purple hard candies to the center, then turn on again and collect the cotton candy on a wooden skewer, turning off the machine and adding more candies until the cone is big and fluffy. Add the purple cotton candy to the container with the white cotton candy, cover again, and refrigerate.
5. Step
Repeat with the blue, green, yellow, orange, and red hard candies, letting the cotton candy machine reheat for 5 minutes between each batch.
6. Step
When ready to serve, uncover the container and invert the cotton candy cake onto a platter. Insert 4–6 wooden skewers into the cake as “candles,” then top each skewer with a gummy candy “flame.”
7. Step
Slice and serve.
8. Step
Enjoy!
