Get ready for April Fool’s Day

April Fool’s Day is Wednesday and I am trying to remind myself that it will be here soon because my brother always seems to get me with some type of practical joke.  If you are a prankster and this is one of your favorite holidays then here are some ideas to help you plan your fun for the day.

Start with food that will surprise everyone.  Your family or friends might think they are getting a sweet chocolate cupcake but it is actually a Meatloaf Cupcake with mashed potatoes
