  1. “What exactly did they put in?”

    Sugar, naturally.

    The flame melts the sugar, which gets launched out the small holes in the lower half of the centrifuge.

    The sugar cools down between the centrifuge and the outer wall, crystallizing into filaments.

    You gather the filaments around a wand, or paper cone and you get cotton candy.

      1. If you have the means, sure. Cotton candy is awesome.

        I’d recommend finding a more self-contained heat source though, as the DIY instructor is losing about half of the sugar with half of the catch wall removed for demonstration.
