I’m still undecided about my game plan for April Fool’s Day tomorrow (eeekk: tomorrow?! Do I have time?). I may chicken out and hold off so that my new employers don’t make questioning my sanity a new lunch time occupation.
April Fool’s jokes with food are a great way to make this trickster holiday inclusive, and less directed at one person. If everyone is the recipient of the joke, no one person is being laughed at.
Want to try your hand at some fun food jokes?
Kitty Litter Cake: a tasty nasty joke, whose energy and motivation is completely crass… and a bit difficult to explain. This is a good one to leave out on a counter and lie in stealth to capture your victim’s unsuspecting reactions.
If you do make this one, make sure to bring extra tootsie rolls with you. Those seem to disappear quickly. Your friends will appreciate seeing the kitty litter box get replenished throughout the day.
Fake Sweet Candy Sushi: this is a more elegant form of the kitty litter cake joke. Making fake sushi with a base of rice crispy treats rolled in white chocolate (melted or shaved) allows for a fun session of investigation with regards to planning sushi toppings. An assortment of dried fruit guarantees astonishing tasty sweet results. Not Martha has a great display on her site of making fake sushi with twinkies and Swedish fish. The results are a beautiful array of colors and candy.
Fake Chicken Pot Pie: the website Family Fun is ramping up the entertainment level of this holiday’s dinner table with this gem, a sweet version of a chicken pot pie made with pudding and cut up candy bits to mimic savory pot pie. It’s disgustingly genius!
Make sure you peruse the whole April Fool’s Day Food Pranks category at their website. More fun food highlights to get our creative juices flowing:

I’d love to hear what pranks you’ve pulled off or are plotting!
