Raise your hand if you love cotton candy! I will raise both hands and jump up and down a couple of times, just so you get a clear picture of how much I love this sweet treat! Reminiscent of childhood days, summer fairs and carrousels, cotton candy makes hearts happy. Period.
Now, make it organic, gluten-free and offer a choice of delicious custom flavours like salted caramel or pomegranate and you’ve got yourself a Fancy Puf.
Michelle Digirolamo is the master Puf-ista behind Fancy Pufs. Sparked by a genuine desire to offer her clients something unique and a long-lived love of cotton candy, this lovely girl specializes in making any and all celebrations a tad sweeter. And did I mention that she has the cutest spinning cart that can be customized? Fancy indeed!
Read on for a little Q&A with Michelle and to find out how you can infuse your celebration with a little fluffy magic.
COTTON CANDY IS SUCH A FUN WAY TO SWEETEN ANY EVENT! COULD YOU TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOU CAN DO SPECIFICALLY FOR WEDDINGS AND CELEBRATIONS?
FP: We have several ways to sweeten up your event! One of our most popular bookings is our mobile cotton candy cart which can roll into any party. Our cart will spin organic cotton candy on site at any celebration. For this option, we offer three packages – Fancy, Fancier and Fanciest. But our mobile cart is not all we offer. We are game for any cotton candy rendezvous! We also have an a la Carte menu that offers exciting extras such as cotton candy champagne and/or tea toppers and fun cotton candy favours. The list goes on and on!
ALL OF YOUR COTTON CANDY FLAVOURS SOUND LIKE MAGIC AND I LOVE THAT THEY ARE ORGANIC AND GLUTEN-FREE! ARE YOU ABLE TO CREATE CUSTOM FLAVOURS AND COLOURS UPON REQUEST?
FP: We do our best to satisfy everybody’s sweet tooth! If there is a preferred flavour that is not on our menu we are happy to craft that flavour for our clients. Some flavours may require up to three weeks notice, but anything is possible!
HOW EARLY IN ADVANCE SHOULD SOMEONE BOOK FANCY PUFS FOR THEIR EVENT?
FP: We suggest three to six months prior to the event depending on the quantity needed. The sooner the better! We are almost fully booked for 2015. We are now taking bookings for 2016.
I AM SURE THAT IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO PICK JUST ONE, BUT DO YOU HAVE A PERSONAL FAVORITE FANCY PUFS FLAVOUR?
FP: HMM! That is a tricky one. I would say lemon is my personal favourite. It’s fresh and fun! Who’s ready for summer?
Lemon cotton candy sounds delicious, yes?! Be sure to follow Michelle here and here for daily inspiration and check out her offerings for a detailed list of options. I think those cotton candy champagne toppers are calling my name!
Lots of love and happy Wednesday! XO
