Gourmet Gadgetry Candyfloss Maker 5 "So much fun, not just for children!" Mrs Agius 18 May 2015 I bought this to do at my daughter's birthday party. I wanted to try it out before the party to check I would be able to do it quickly, and without too much mess. I shouldn't have worried. 2 minutes to put together and another 3 or 4 minutes before you are eating your own candy floss. The candy floss tastes amazing, just like the real fair ground stuff; just from a spoonful of granulated sugar. I now use it a lot. My daughter has become the coolest kid on the block, and it's safe to say it gets far more use than for just for the birthday parties I originally intended.
