  1. In a bowl, add the powdered sugar and cream cheese. Using a hand mixer, beat well until smooth.  
  2. Add in the cotton candy flavouring and heavy cream and continue mixing. 
  3. Separate the mixture into 3 bowls and add 1-2 drops of each food colouring into separate bowls. Do not add colouring to the third bowl as it is supposed to remain white. 
  4. Divide the cool whip evenly into the three bowls and gently fold it in to combine. 
  5. Put the mixtures into separate piping bags and pipe into the shot glasses in layers. 
  6. Garnish with small chunks of cotton candy and enjoy!
