    I'm a chai addict and have tried so many chai-infused desserts but this might be my favorite! Classy cotton candy for adults. :)

    Do you think this would work with fishing line.....might be able to spray paint it to be more irredescent?...

  • Liz Gray
    Liz Gray

    Yolanda, I'm sure fishing line would look great! It would give the flowers a floating effect, I think.
