Malassezia furfur is very difficult to grow, and usually entails an overlay with olive oil to get it to grow, as the organism is lipophilic. Candida sp. grow very easily on Sabouraud's agar and doesn't require special treatment. See the second page of this article:
I am a microbiology technologist and have only seen M. furfur once in 35 years. I see Candida sp. on an almost daily basis when reading out plates.
