Step right up, step right up – World Famous Funnel Cakes has just arrived in town and now you get a chance to indulge in the rich flavours of the immensely popular carnival dish. These golden brown treats have a texture that is a mix between donut and churro yet is as sweet as a waffle. Funnel Cakes are light and aerated, served with an assortment of toppings – typically powdered sugar, chocolate or ice cream – funnel cake is an immensely popular dessert in many countries around the world but especially America, where World Famous Funnel Cakes founder, Christina, is from.
Eat Street Markets is home to World Famous Funnel Cakes in Brisbane, who combine a festive carnival atmosphere that pays homage to the circus heritage that helped popularise the dessert in North America. Based in Byron Bay, World Famous Funnel Cakes started from humble beginnings in 2013, and are making their first foray into the market scene with their stall at Eat Street. The delicious treats on offer include salted caramel, hot fudge, strawberry coulis and affogato varieties. You may have seen these same funnel cakes at the Brisbane Exhibition earlier in the year where they were a massive hit. With their own form of live entertainment incorporating dancing and circus routines set to a vintage electric swing soundtrack, World Famous Funnel Cakes are an entertaining and delicious dessert option that can be customised a variety of ways.
