Every summer I wait, giddy as a school girl, for the fair to come to town.
Whenever I think of the fair I get a mental picture of a colorful scene from a Where’s Waldo book. I know. I am weird. Do you guys remember those books? I was obsessed with finding Waldo every time we took my little brother to his doctor’s appointments. Our family doctor always had every Where’s Waldo book in the waiting room.
::reminiscing about that tall guy in the candy cane striped shirt, matching ski hat and blue pants::
Now everyone’s probably heard of the fried snickers, fried twinkles, fried oreos phenomenon (FYI fried snickers are awesome!) that’s been part of fair history for the last couple years but this year I was given an inside scoop that there would be… wait for it…
I got proof.
I must have asked every information booth, walked around the fair in circles before I found them. It took me about an hour to find the little Spud Shack that also sold the famous fried cupcakes. (Ok… maybe they are only famous to me. LOL) Did you say Spud Shack? Yes. Spud Shack. Talk about a hodge podge of a menu. They sold mostly fried potatoes with many different fixings but their dessert menu included fried chocolate dogs (Don’t ask me if it was a hot dog covered in chocolate and fried. I really didn’t wanna know!) and fried cupcakes.
What did I think of the fried cupcake? It was gooooooooooood!
It reminded me of a soft churro but not quite as crispy on the outside with frosting and sprinkles. T wasn’t a fan though. I admit after you get over the initial ooze of oil that gushes out when you bite into it, its very yummy! (Can you feel your arteries clogging while reading?)
Hmmm… my MIL has a deep fryer. Maybe I’ll have to try to bake up my own fried cupcake! I bet a fried red velvet would change my husband’s lackluster tune. ;)
