To make a snowflake funnel cake, you will need some soft tortillas, vegetable oil, and powdered sugar. You will also need scissors, a pan for frying the tortillas, and tongs to remove the crispy tortilla from the oil. Make sure the tortillas are fresh and have not been in the fridge, or they will break when you fold them.

How to Make a Snowflake Funnel Cake

  • Step 1: Fold a fajita tortilla into fourths and cut it with scissors like a snowflake. You don’t want the tortilla to be too large, which is why I chose the fajita size.
  • Step 2: Throw it into some hot oil. The oil needs to be deep enough to cover the whole tortilla. An inch of oil is plenty. Flip the tortilla in the oil so that it browns evenly on both sides.
  • Step 3: When the tortilla is crispy and light brown, pull it out with tongs, onto a paper towel.
  • Step 4: Sprinkle powdered sugar on it.

Voila! A yummy, beautiful snowflake that tastes just like a funnel cake!
