Further requirements

If the Name "Mama Jane's" + tagline "Gourmet Funnel Cakes" does not work, it can be combined into simply "Mama Jane's Funnel Cakes".

I'm leaning for something on the simple but elegant side. The EcoPlan and FramedArt design I think are simple, but convey what is needed and the best out of these. They also have the element that can be pulled out and used separately or as part of background imagery (the box, the bulb). Laura Rauch is very nice, but I think it gets busy. Still has the lement that can be detached. This aspect is a must in this design project. 

Squeez is very nice and playful, but working on busy. The personal Nicole one is awesome as well, just not sure how it could be used as a frame of reference for this project. That's it for ranking them in my personal favorites and comments.

The attached images are for our main funnel cake and the other is one of our "make them at home kits" (rendering, this will need to be designed as well). The 3rd image is a logo done by a family member. Hint, we will not be using this logo (it's not even spelled right). I did like how they incorporated the funnel being "poured", but it's so busy you never realize it until pointed out to you.

I forgot to note colors. Red, Yellow, Green (they are food "hungry" colors). Can use black, but should work on a black/white/red background equally as well. Try Googling "Food Hungry Colors" for a background in this:
