Toast the weekend with cotton candy! We all deserve something sweet for making it through another week. I’m planning to pull out one of our all time favorite treats to savor a few sweet moments this weekend. Topping our champagne glasses… filling the s’mores… really it is nearly magical to me. Cotton candy is basically unicorn food, when tasted by tired humans it gives us all the magical boost we need for a weekend of revelry.
