How to get "cotton" stuffing look

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to have stuffing coming out of my bear cake or maybe even have the bear sitting in a box of stuffing. I want the cotton airy look. I've heard of using cotton candy, but not sure I can find white and I've heard it melts after a short time. Any other ideas?

Cotton Candy was my first pick. You're right...can't see finding it in white.

My next idea is marshmellows. I haven't tried it, but it may be a viable option. I would play with marshmellows kinda rolling them around in your hand. They will get that elephant look, but then they get a diffferent look & feel. kinda pull and distort them. May end up looking like cotton. Also, I would try to use the little marshmellows not stretching them as much.

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Hmm. Marshmallows never stretch right for me. Perhaps you could try making your own marshmallows and forming them when they're warm?

I would consider using spun sugar.
Good luck!

thanks for the thoughts.  Spun sugar is out for me- haven't worked with that.  I've poured jewels, but that was a nightmare.  Will stick with fondant or marshmallows.

I'm not sure if you have your own cotton candy machine, but Pina Colada cotton candy is white. Maybe you could find a vendor that sells cotton candy (if you don't have a machine) that might offer that flavor (maybe a movie theatre...etc).

Don't use cotton candy unless it only has to sit out for less than an hour before being deconstructed.  I did it with my Unicorn cake and it did melt after an hour.  (Even in my freezing cold office!)
