April Fools Day Food Pranks Round Up

April Fools Day Food Pranks Round Up

Can you tell how excited I am for April Fools Day. Unfortunately, most of my tricks are done on my kids ahead of time so I can get them on the blog before April Fools Day. Last week, I think my son’s friends were mortified that he ate a ham and cheese sandwich that came out of an uncrustable for his April Fools Day Lunch Prank. I love having fun with food and April Fools Day allows my creativity to soar. I have included 2 April Fools Day food pranks I did this year, as well as a few other blogger’s April Fools Day Food Pranks. Hope you get some inspiration to fool your kids or co-workers too. april fools day pranks

Everyone loves cheese sandwiches. Well cut some slices of pound cake, color some frosting orange and you have yourself an April Fools Day Cheese Sandwich. Just imagine these in the kids lunch boxes.

This April Fools Day treat was inspired by Hello Cupcake  book. To make this fun  April Fools Day “side dish” place a few slices of pound cake onto a plate and cover with a thin layer of yellow tinted frosting. (only about 2-3 drops to darken your whiter frosting)

Place this frosting into a piping bag with a small circle tip. Then spread the frosting on top and over the sides of the pound cake.
