    Never had either. But when you walk past the Funnel Cake stand, you can see and smell it being made. It smells very similar to our fresh doughnuts, and is made in the same way. Batter mix is zig-zagged across a fryer full of boiling oil and fried. Apparently though, it does not taste anything like our doughnuts :(

    More like 2 or 3 bags. They are from Orlando Ale House, cost around $12. Waitress wouldn't take our order for anymore food until we had eaten the Nacho's, 3 of us ate and ate and still left this much, no way could we eat anything else, glad we didn't order entree's.

    Our next planned trip is August, no idea how we are going to cope. Will just keep looking at photos and dreaming.

    Funnel cake is always on our list when we go.

    It is basically doughnut/pancake batter that is piped into hot fat so it makes a sort of 'nest' type shape. We think it is very similar tasting to doughnuts, even though the texture is crispier.
    It is then loaded with whatever takes your fancy, however powdered sugar, ice-cream, squirty cream and fruit are the norm.

    Here's a couple of some that we have had to add to the growing collection.
