DALLAS (AP) - A fancy carrot cake and a bacon-savory cocktail have won top food awards as vendors prepare for the 2015 State Fair of Texas.

Judges in Dallas on Sunday honored Fernie's holy moly carrot cake roly, with cream cheese, as the best tasting treat.

The award for most creative went to the smoky bacon margarita, touted as adding a subtle smoky taste to a traditionally tangy drink.

Eight food and beverage items made this year's cut as finalists for the State Fair of Texas honors.

The annual expo runs Sept. 25 through Oct. 18.
