I am not a big fan of April Fools Day or pranks in general. Maybe I had some mean spirited pranks pulled on me as a child that have damaged my psyche forever. Maybe I was born without a prank appreciation gene. Who knows. So getting in the spirit of our Friday Frivolity host theme was a bit challenging for me. In the end I opted for Fun Faux Foods.
Nothing mean spirited like the Chocolate Pie in The Help. Just fun foods that look like one thing but are actually another.
Start off the day with a breakfast of poached eggs (yogurt and a peach), frozen cereal and undrinkable juice (gelatin) from Clean and Scentsible.
Alphabet Soup (pudding with cereal letters) from Party Pinching
Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Icing from Frosting and a Smile.
Pepperoni Jalapeno and Jelly Bean Pizza with Anchovies from That Recipe (that's me in case you didn't know)
