I am so hoping someone can help me. I have the grand idea to make my daughter's first birthday cakes cotton candy flavor. Here's where I'm running into an issue: locally, there are no shops who sell cotton candy flavoring; I don't have time to order and receive the flavoring should I order it. Duncan Hines cotton candy flavored mixes are not available nor are those flavoring packets I adored. I had the idea for two other options: somehow incorporate actual cotton candy into the batter of the cake and in the icing OR I have these red bird cotton candy flavored candy puffs. They are made with cane sugar and seem like they would melt rather easily. My concern is that I don't want to throw off the scientific ratios and have the cake and/or icing turn out all wrong and gross. Any ideas of methods I can use to have the flavor using these items without compromising the quality of the cake and icing? I would greatly appreciate any ideas.
