Happy April Fool’s day! For about 7 years, I have been making April Fools’ foods for my kiddos. Take a look at some of my creations. Clearly, some are better than others and NONE are healthy!
This is what we had for breakfast today…
They were a hit! Looks pretty good next to the real deal, right?
*If you want to know how I made my pranks, here’s the break-down:
- Fish sticks=wafer cookies covered in peanut butter, rolled in Rice Krispies, Peas=green Laffy Taffy rolled in small balls, Ketchup=warm raspberry jelly (not jam. You don’t want seeds.)
- Fruit juice= Jell-o in a cup
- Meatloaf= Rice Krispie treats made using Cocoa Pebbles, Mashed potatoes= vanilla bean ice cream, Gravy= caramel sauce
- Brownies= large capital E’s on a plate, Chicken nuggets=pound cake covered in thin coat of peanut butter rolled in graham cracker crumbs, Sweet and Sour sauce= caramel sauce
- Tomato soup=yogurt with red food coloring, Grilled cheese= pound cake with icing dyed yellow-orange.
- Pizza=flour tortilla covered in raspberry jelly for tomato sauce, white icing for mozzarella cheese, cashews for mushrooms, and green fruit roll-up for green peppers.
- Baked potato= vanilla ice cream rolled in cocoa powder, sour cream= white icing, and butter=yellow icing
- Donuts=bagels iced with whipped cream cheese with some pink food coloring, sprinkles=sprinkles
Most of my ideas were inspired by magazines and websites I have viewed over the years but sadly, I haven’t kept track of my sources — I apologize! I love giving credit to all of my inspirations so just know that these are not all my original ideas. Well, except for maybe the donuts. I thought of that on my own.
I will be posting a slipcover update on Sunday. It’s finally done but, I’m not ever. doing it. again. It was HARD!! (make sure you read that last sentence in a really annoying and whiney voice.)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
