Cotton Candy Peppermint Blast

Lorin Cook Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

The fabulous Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creations, mixed with a hint of peppermint flavored Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake makes a great combination at any event. The tie dye colors really pop when paired with the Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting. Jazz it up by plating it on a "pillow" of cotton candy to intensify the effect!! It's a real BLAST of flavor!!

I am completely obsessed with Wilton decorating tips. They are easy to use and make for beautiful frosting. I also blog some of my creations (I'm very into presentation) and I thought this would be a good forum to share. sometimesifrost. blogspot.com
