Funnel Cake is a State Fair favorite and has the longest lines possible and honestly, we think we go there just to be able to enjoy this wonderful treat. The “yummy, sweet, warm, crispy-outside and soft-inside” goodness makes the long lines so worth the trouble and effort.

Cook Time: 3-4 min for each cake
