The fair is back, and with it the deep-fried carny cuisine we love. Oh, don't look like that. All over the world, people of different cultures and creeds are united by a universal love of fried dough.
Purists insist on powdered sugar only on their funnel cakes, or else a little cinnamon sugar. Really, it's cousin to the French beignet. Classy. Once you branch out into gooey fruit toppings, whipped cream and "sweet cream," which borders on cream cheese frosting, things get decidedly more lurid.
