Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day. Do you have a special prank planned out for that special someone in your life? Are you looking for ideas that won’t drive your spouse to divorce you or your children to a therapist when they get older? These funny recipes are really cute and safe ways to not be “too mean” on April Fool’s Day. When I was younger, I did tend to go too far sometimes with the April Fool’s Day fun. No one was safe around me. I usually used items from the kitchen to carry out my mayhem. I have put saran wrap on the toilet, whipped cream on sleeping unsuspecting victims, and added loads of cayenne pepper in something someone was about to eat. But now that I have a pre-school aged son, I tend to air on the side of cautiousness. Tomorrow, I’ll be making these cute sweet looking cupcakes which are really a savory treat.
Colorful Cupcakes (shown above) – These sweet looking little bites are actually meatloaf and mashed potatoes

Or you can simply do my favorite, exchange the salt and the sugar. I once did to this to a coworker at a restaurant. She added salt instead of sugar to the sweet tea. It took her a good 20 minutes to figure it out. I was just about rolling on the floor.
