God wish I could watch it, I love candy.  I make walnut chocolate marshmallow creme fudge and everyone loves it.  Too much actually so I only make it a couple of times a year.

The guy is standing there with a cotton candy machine and he has containers of sugar that are white, yellow and red.  He begins with the white and spins cotton candy roughly like a fat corn dog shape :)  Then he fluffs it out into a shape that's like a large mouthed bowl that's very small at the bottom (almost like a large cone).  He changes over to a scoop of yellow colored sugar and spins the color over the outer edges of the cone then stops the machine while he uses a tool to pinch indentations in the outer edge of the bowl/cone so that it's not a circle any more, it's more like a flower with petals.  Then he puts red sugar in the machine and spins another level of color and a larger area builds up around where the "petals" are.  He stops again and pinches them into yet more petals with a red look.  When he finishes it looks like a beautiful flower - exquisite!

No idea how many hours of practice it takes to make it so it looks like that .

I just hope Mr Slugsworth isn't watching this.

We don't want him to steal all their candy making secrets.
