Marie Antoinette famously uttered, "Let them eat funnel cake!" while cutting in line at the guillotine after mistakenly confusing it with the Tilt-A-Whirl queue. Use your head to indulge in treats fit for a queen with today's Groupon: for $10 you get $20 worth of funnel cakes and other summer-festival fare at Funnel Cake Creations in the Shops at Blue Parkway.
Funnel Cake Creations savors the ambrosial sweetness of summer with year-round DIY funnel cake concoctions, specialty fried dough snacks, and other carnival favorites. Bundled-up folks in need of a funhouse favorite can select from 50 toppings ($.60 each) including crushed Snickers, peanut-butter glaze, and gummy bears to garnish a 6-inch ($4.50) or 8-inch ($5.50) powdered-sugar-topped sphere. Turtle Cake ($7 for 8") sacrifices chocolate, caramel, and pecans at the foot of your mouth’s altar, adorned with frozen vanilla custard and a golden-brown pastry. Funnel Cake Creations also deep-fries Oreos ($2.50 for four) and peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches ($2.99) to induce daydreams of nickel rides and non-unionized carousel unicorns.
