Yep, it’s almost that time of year again. Carnival season! I love the rides, vendor booths, and of course, the food. Who could resist a smoked turkey leg, freshly spun cotton candy, and last but not least, funnel cakes?
I don’t like having to wait until summer before I can have a funnel cake. There’s no way I can just walk into a grocery store and buy them. So, how did I solve this problem? I made my own and added my creative touch. Enjoy!
