Lol it doesn't work that way. Although washing machines and cotton candy machines are similar, where the washing machines use detergent, cotton candy machines use a sweet webbing distribution known as cane solidifiers that are released and spun first as liquid in a counter/clockwise motion with increasing temperature from the heat below. It needs just enough heat (about 60c) to solidify the sugar. The cotton candy holder is whiffed around to cool down the process simultaneously and to give that sugar a cotton-like structure. The whole process is actually very unique and all bullshjt because I have no idea what the fvck im talking about.
@amqwetts2147, you know? I was gonna call BS then I got to the last line.
@amqwetts2147, I love this community.
Sometimes the comments are more enjoyable than the post
@amqwetts2147, You actually sound like you know what you're talking about. You should go into politics.
@amqwetts2147, I thought that was actually really cool god dammit!
@amqwetts2147, ur not out in left field actually. Im not 100% but we learned a bit about cotton candy in my baking program and its just fine sugar colored with some flavor powder mixed together. Then melted in the cotton candy maker to "thread stage" (110°c/212°f) and whipped around by the air so fast that it makes light fluffy webs.
@PunnyBaker, You can make similar cotton candy at home. It just wont be as fluffy.
Just melt the sugar in a heavy bottomed pot (i think u can add a touch of lemon juice too) then heat it until 110°c, making sure to prevent crystals from forming on the side of the pot and making sure not to stir it either.
Then u have a long greased dowel or something of the sort taped to the edge of the counter, making sure about 1ft of dowel is hanging over. Throw newspaper or parchment/wax paper under it. Then take a whisk with the ends cut off and dip it in the melted sugar mixture and go back and forth about 6-12" over the dowel gently shaking it so the sugar strings hardens over it. Repeat as much as you like, then while the strands are cool but still flexible, gently remove the sugar strands from the dowel all together and form into a loose ball. This is also how they make spun sugar baskets and the finishing touch on a Croquembouche in fancy pastry shops
@amqwetts2147, thank you science side of funnypics
@PunnyBaker, that is too much work for candy...
@Sortofslobro, candy is hard work. Taffy is actually pretty simple but still requires arm strength. I havent even tried homemade cotton candy because its also pretty messy
@amqwetts2147, I just wanna point out the picture said dryer, not washing machine
@amqwetts2147, Fake News!
I'll be back, I got to go try something
@the Dank Secret, yea, I'm going to try to make kids too! now I just need a wife
@Don Taco, no you don't
@Don Taco, @Dr Kriegerstein has a point
You just think it was the kids
Well, did it work?
@Technosexual , This was the first thing to pop into my head after reading this.
Why do they have 3 pounds of sugar in their home?
