The cotton candy's head is made similarly as in the 'Little Lamb' tutorial. I used a 50/50 FP/SP mix* with CMC, because it was difficult to shape the head properly with plain flower paste (the FP/SP mix with CMC is softer).
* FP stands for flower paste (gum paste); SP stands for sugarpaste (fondant). To make a 50/50 FP/SP mix: mix equal amounts of FP and SP (ratio 1:1) f.ex. 25 g of FP and 25 g of SP. You don't need to weigh the paste, just mix similar size pieces. A 50/50 FP/SP mix is too soft to make cake toppers. If you want to make cake toppers, you need toadd CMC to it.
