"Food Friday".... April Fool's Food!

Can you believe it's almost April?! That means it's almost time for the one day a year that you can play pranks on everyone and totally get away with it!  One of my favorites is when my sister called her husband at work and said he had a message from someone named Mr. Lyon.  The number she gave him to call was for the zoo!  Anything that can get a good laugh and doesn't hurt anyone is fair game on the 1st of April!  Since we're a food lovin' family, we decided to find some fun foods to help celebrate April Fool's Day this year. 

Here's what we came up with....

For the Hamburger Lovers: The "bun" is made from two peanut butter cookies. The "meat" is a brownie that's been cut into a circle. The "ketchup" is red icing drizzled around the brownie and the "lettuce" is shredded coconut that's been dyed green and sprinkled on top!

A "Well-Balanced" Dinner...April Fool's Style: The "Fish Sticks" are made from Kit Kat bars that have been rolled in Toasted Coconut. The "Peas" & "Baked Beans" are Jelly Bellies and the "Mashed Potatoes" are made from Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramel Sauce!

Do your kids ever want dessert first? Here's some "Cupcakes" for dinner!  (The "Cupcake" is really Meatloaf!) As for the "Frosting".... Mashed Potatoes sprinkled with pink Sea Salt!

Love Italian Food? Here's some "Spaghetti & Meatballs".... April Fool's Style: The "Spaghetti" is made by squeezing frosting through the corner of a baggie. Move it all around the cupcake to create the "Noodles." Cover as much of the cupcake tops as possible and place them close together for the best look. Next, you'll use the Ferrero Rocher fine hazelnut chocolates as the "Meatballs." For the "Sauce" microwave a small bowl of strawberry or other berry flavored jam with a small amount of water to dilute, for about 30 seconds. Dip each chocolate in the jam, cover well, and set on top of each cupcake. Drizzle the jam over the cupcakes to create the look of spaghetti sauce. Grate some white chocolate over the top for the "Parmesan Cheese!"

"Fried Chicken Dinner"....April Fool's Style: The "Chicken Drumsticks" are made by frosting a cupcake and topping it with a donut hole. Frost that too, then coat with crushed corn flakes. Melt white chocolate and put it into a baggie. Snip the corner of the baggie and drizzle it onto waxed paper, making the shape of a "bone." Refrigerate until hardened and then stick the "bone" in the top of the cupcake. For the "Mashed Potatoes" spread a generous amount of vanilla frosting over the cupcakes. Create a "well" in the center of each one. To make the "Butter" place a yellow Starburst in the "well" and spoon Caramel Topping over it for the "Gravy." For the "Corn" spread yellow frosting over the cupcakes and place "Kernels" on top. Cut the yellow part off of some Candy Corn to make the "Corn Kernels." The "Pudding" is made by spreading chocolate frosting over some cupcakes and adding candy sprinkles.
