  5. To the second half, add 2-3 drops of blue food coloring to your dough and knead well. To this portion, you will also add the packet of cotton candy frosting flavoring. Continue to knead until the color is well dispersed.
  6. Roll each set of dough into a ball and then sprinkle well with the crafting glitter.
  7. You can now roll the two dough balls together to form the pink and blue swirl shape.
