Instead of ice-cream, fill up their bowls with mashed potatoes and top it up with some pretty sprinkles. Then sit back and watch with delight as they scoop!

2. Meatloaf cupcakes

Expect the unexpected from these dainty little cupcakes. 


They’re too enticing even for the strongest. Pulled off right, they’ll provide the best “Gotcha!” moment this Fool’s day. Make sure to top your cupcakes with colourful cream to avoid blowing their cover too early.

Regardless, it’ll make April Fool’s day memorable for both of you. All you’ll need is some cake mix, vanilla frosting, food colouring, strawberry fruit roll-ups, and white baking chocolate.
