April 1st is the greatest “holiday” ever celebrated by twisted parents! My parents have had their fair share of tormenting me as a child and teenager, so I figure it is time to start with my own children. There is nothing better than coming home from school to yummy cupcakes waiting for you.
Especially when your Mom and Dad tell you that in honor of April Fools Day we will be having dessert first!
Well… for 3 min. you have the coolest parents in the world! Until you bite in a realize it isn’t chocolate cake and frosting but mashed potatoes and meatloaf!
For the “cupcakes”:
Make your regular meatloaf, bake it in cupcake tins. I drained the grease off when they were done and put them in foil cupcake holders. Then I made mashed potatoes and divided them into 3 bowls. I added food color to make them look like frosting. Then with a frosting bag “decorated” the tops of the meatloaf. I think the “display” part is the key! My kids really thought they were yummy cupcakes!
For the “fruit punch”:
Just get clear plastic cups and make your favorite jello. Put in a straw when liquid and let them set up in the fridge. Again, until they went to drink them they thought they were real drinks! It was funny!
