April Fools Pranks: You'll Never Guess What These "Cupcakes" Really Are...

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

Fakin’ and Eggs – This fake out bacon and eggs dish made with white chocolate, M&MS, caramel, and a Tootsie Roll is sure to have your kids laughing all day

Fauxberry Pie – This sweet looking treat is actually a savory pie made of meatloaf and mashed potatoes tinted pink with beets.

Fried Egg Sundae – This gross looking sundae is actually a a vanilla shake and lemon pudding made to look like a fried egg, it’s very cute!

Hot Chocolate Havoc – This “mess” is really not a mess at all. It would be the perfect thing to surprise a neat freak mommy with tomorrow morning!

Chicken Not Pie – This savory looking chicken pot pie, is really a sweet treat in disguise.

Gelled Juice – Fake your kid’s out tomorrow with this gelled juice, too funny!

Fake Spaghetti and Malt Balls – This family favorite dish is actually made of sweet things. A little more work with this recipe, but definitely worth it!

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.

These are just a sampling of all the incredible April Fool’s Day recipe ideas at Disney’s Family Fun site. To see them all, click here.
