Fascinating Fascinator

I forgot that I already made a fascinator hat. I recently threw my bestie a baby shower and our activity was to craft hair flair or fascinators. Super fun project by the way. I suggest you try if you are looking for some kind of lady date craft for you and your gal pals. I purchased a crap ton of craft felt, ribbon, bling and barrettes up to the craft store. Paired with scissors, thread and glue guns, we all went to town. If you need some inspiration, I suggest you look up fascinators on Etsy.

Here are pics of me wearing my lovely fascinator hat. I went with basic black (very unlike me to go basic) but I really like it.

So I bought a funnel cake kit from a school fundraiser my daughter was participating in. It has been sitting on my counter for quite some time.

I guess I was waiting for that perfect funnel cake moment to come along. I finally realized that there is no time like the present for funnel cake. It was really easy to make. I just poured the batter into the funnel pitcher and made swirlies in hot oil. I used a metal spatula to flip the cakes so they would be golden brown on both sides and I dusted them with cinnamon sugar.

To say that this is delicious is TRULY an understatement. The good news is, I have the pitcher. Armed with a batter recipe and some hot oil, I can do this ANYTIME. Friends, wear your stretchy pants. Momma's got a new dessert on the menu!
