April Fools’ Day, celebrated the first day of April every year, is a day of fun, practical jokes and general foolishness. Growing up, I remember the silly jokes I played on my parents and classmates which wasn’t limited to clear soap on the toilet seat or switching my dads jug of tea out for lemonade.

Now that I’m a mom and wife, the pranks haven’t ceased. I just have my fun in the kitchen with April Fools’ Day foods. Kraft recently shared some really fun ideas for dinner and dessert pranks to play on the family and I even came up with one of my own.

Potato Topped Mini Meatloaves – Cupcakes for dinner are always appropriate … when they’re made with layers of delicious meatloaf “cake” and mashed potatoes n gravy “icing”.

    Looks great. I did the meatloaf cake last year with some of the mashed potatoes colored green to make the frosting look even more realistic. Drove my kids nuts, but now I have to decide what to do to them this year. Some fun ideas here.
