Your childhood dreams have come true: the funnel cake ice cream sandwiches are now being served at Ice Que in Alhambra.

For now the FuNELLE cake is available only as vanilla mascarpone filled with strawberries. Ice Que's John Park told LAist, "We want it to taste exactly like what you would have at Magic Mountain and Knott's Berry Farm—funnel cake topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream and berries." But he added there could be more flavor combinations down the road.

And, yes, the funnel cakes are made fresh to order. It's hard to top that delectable combination of warm, crispy fried batter with sweet, frozen ice cream. Of course it's topped off with powdered sugar. Did you even have to ask?

The FuNELLE cake was launched last Friday and will be served every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m., starting tomorrow only at Ice Que in Alhambra. It'll set you back $6.50, a small price to pay for that return trip to the joy of youthful summers.

Ice Que is located at 401 W. Main St., Alhambra. The shop is open from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays through Saturdays, and closed Sundays and Mondays. Prices range from $5.25 to $7.25.
