Cotton Candy?

I had a bad experience putting cotton candy on a cake once. At least it was for a family member so I was at the party to fix it. If you live in a very dry climate you might get away with cotton candy, but any humidity will turn it into a pile of pink mess.

I was thinking you might be able to do something with sugarveil. you could make multiple pieces of pink mesh and layer them.

Scroll down on this page to the "Veil Technique" you can do it with the mat, comb and a piping bag if you don't have the dispenser gun.

it wouldn't look as fine a real tulle but it would be edible and have the airiness of a tutu.
