Start out with a meatloaf cake that looks like carrot cake but has ground beef tucked inside.
Move onto Rice Krispie Treats buffalo wings as your next course — the celery sticks on the side are actually green licorice dipped in white frosting, not ranch dressing!
You need a drink, too, right? Offer edible teacups.
Keep the joke going right through dessert with these April Fools’ Day recipe ideas and if you have any other golden April Fools Day food pranks you want to share, tell us about them in the comments.
Start this recipe for Rice Krispie Treats buffalo wings from Party Pinching by mixing together puffed cereal and melted marshmallows. Form into chicken wing shapes and then coat in a melted mixture of brown sugar. To really fool your kids give them “celery sticks” to go along with the wings – the sticks are made out of green licorice.
Finish off your silly meal with a plate of fruit – but these aren’t just any fruit pieces. These Jell-O oranges from SnapGuide look real but they’re made out of Jell-O. Here’s how it works: Slice oranges in half and remove the inside. Prepare orange Jell-O and pour into the halves. Refrigerate to set. Cut into segments and serve.
What kid wouldn’t mind having pizza for dessert? But this is no ordinary pizza. This pizza cake from Serious Eats has a yellow cake crust that’s layered with strawberry jam (sauce), grated white chocolate (cheese) and toppings made up of Fruit Roll-Ups (pepperoni) and gummy candies (red and green peppers). Complete the look of your pizza cake by picking up a pizza box from a local restaurant to use to fool your family into thinking it might just be the real thing.
