      Funnel Cake!! Maybe mine became funnel cake because I used a smaller star tip but they were great!! Light and airy not too sweet alone but with the lemon syrup... ohhh you could be in trouble! I would suggest making the syrup first so it has time to cool and thicken. Those these would be delicious with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and some strawberries.
