Fair time is kind of like when Pavlov rings his bell...we salivate. "Cheese sticks...turkey legs...candy apples all day long," scream the vendors at the fair.
But the fair is gone for this year and most of us will have to wait an entire year to eat our favorite foods again. But if you're one who likes funnel cakes, here's a product you can use right now. Introducing the Carnival Funnel Cake Maker. It comes with a funnel pitcher, fry ring, sugar shaker, and two bags of mix. All you do is add water.
The instructions say to add one cup of the dry mix and 3/4 cup of water and mix it. Once you do that, just pour the batter in the pitcher. Place the fry ring in the skillet of hot oil and pour the batter in the pan. The funnel cake seemed to be cooking nicely, browning on the edges fast. I removed the ring with the tongs that come with the package.
In less than three minutes, this funnel cake was done and it got the powdered sugar treatment. That was so easy! Let's do it again. "I made this one thicker," I said.
And you know what, thicker is better. It turned out to be a beauty. The one thing I noticed was the amount of smoke the grease was letting off, which attracted all sort of KCBD employees. "Oh, that's good," they all said.
I made one more funnel cake, this time the batter was thinner and the result wasn't good. "This one is more like a funnel flop."
I thought the funnel cake worked! You can buy your own at Linens and Things for $14.99.
