Almost everyone loves funnel cakes but they are quite pricy at the fairs or carnivals. I never knew they were very inexpensive and so simple to make so why not make it for a special treat for the family. Put out powered sugar and cinnamon and let them sprinkle it on themselves. This is also a great idea to do for a fundraiser don't you think?
