Yep- you heard it right, Europea Restaurant in Montreal serves cotton candy trees resembling pink cherry blossom trees! Fluffs of rich, pink fairy floss is swirled together and then carefully placed on a beautiful dark presentation stand, resembling the skeleton of a tree. It looks exquisite!
That's not the entirety of the dessert though, below the tree stand is a tray containing a wide assortment of luscious biscuits, cookies and baked goods. They also feature charming bags of sweets that hang from the tree branches, for you to take home. What an adorable idea!
This aesthetically-pleasing, visual piece of art is the perfect way to end your evening, whether it's a birthday, dinner out with friends, anniversary, or plain ol' dinner date. The dessert is wow-worthy though to impress the entire table and put everyone in a good mood.
