It’s a big deal. She’s a regular on the cable TV show Carnival Eats but her fair food masterpieces have been featured on The Today Show, CBS This Morning, and The Travel Channel.   Every year “Mama Jane” Harris creates something new for the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City and this year, it sounds like she’s got another winner.

The Strawberry Lemon Ricotta Funnel Cake has a crunch factor that’s “phenomenal” according to Mama.  The crazy thing is Mama doesn’t even have a sweet tooth herself.  She doesn’t usually eat her own desserts, but she says she loves this one.  She’s done a similar cake in Pensacola with blueberries, but given that this is Plant City, it’s gotta be fresh Wish Farms strawberries.

In our chat, Mama dropped a surprise on me, by the way. The creation that made me fall in love with her is coming back for one night only. Funnel Bacon on a Stick is my favorite fair food ever created. Mama says she’ll bring it back for one night only. Head to my Facebook page and we’ll pick a night.
