Happy April Fool's Day!

It's April Fool's Day. I remember growing up this day was so much fun...I pulled lots of pranks on my teachers, family and friends. Why stop now? Here's a few ideas I've found for April Fool's Day that are cute and easy to do!

Fried-egg Sundae
by Cindy A. Littlefield

If you really want to dupe your kids on April Fools' Day, you need a prank that won't leave egg on your face. Here's a sweet trick that fits the bowl!
INGREDIENTS:Ice creamMarshmallow fluffLemon pudding/pie filling (an instant mix works fine)
Scoop ice cream into a dish, then spoon on a generous blob of marshmallow fluff (it will smooth out and resemble an egg white as the air escapes).
For a yolk, add a rounded blob of lemon pudding. Makes one sundae.

Meat Loaf
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Potato Frosting
3 cups mashed potatoes
Food coloring
1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 muffin tin cups with foil bake cups.
2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full)
3. Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
4. Divide the mashed potatoes among three small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch to create blue, yellow, and pink pastel frostings. Spread a generous dollop on each cupcake. Makes 12 cupcakes.
