aPriL FoOl's dAy!!

We had a fun backwards dinner for April Fool's Day this year!

Here was our dessert - Hamburger sliders?!?

No! Cupcakes dressed up as hamburgers!


I used my favorite gluten-free yellow cake recipe (http://glutenfreehomemaker.com/2008/12/gluten-free-yellow-cake-recipe/) and cooked it in a muffin pan. Then I split them in half. I cooked Betty Crocker's Gluten Free Brownie Mix in a muffin pan and used these as the hamburgers. Added a little green and red icing for lettuce and ketchup and some sugar crystals on top! Voila! (And Yum-Yum!)

For dinner we had birthday cake?!?

No! Meatloaf with mashed potatoes and cherry tomatoes!


For this, just make your favorite meatloaf recipe in a cake pan (if you are using 2 lbs of ground meat, make a double layer cake with bbq sauce or ketchup in the middle). Spread with mashed potatoes (I used instant) and garnish with cherry tomatoes.

The kids LOVED this dinner and ate everything!!
Gotta love April Fool's Day!
