April 1st is April Fool’s Day and what better prank than fooling your friends and family with desserts that do not look like dessert? You will trick their eyes and surprise their taste buds with cakes and cookies that look like savory favorites.
Imagine what a surprise it will be when your Italian dinner turns into pasta dessert! The On Top of Spaghetti Cake is a great cake to try even if you are new to cake decorating because it doesn’t have to be perfect — the imperfections are what makes it look more believable as a plate of spaghetti and meatballs.
It is amazing how a little bit of icing coloring and mini chocolate chips can transform a cake into a mouthwatering slice of watermelon. A Slice of Summertime Cake is another simple way to fool your friends with an extra sweet serving of “watermelon.” Adding plastic ants will really make you take a double look at this look-alike treat.
Everyone will think you ordered takeout when they see the Sweet Supreme Cookie Pizza, but they will be in for an April 1st surprise! The sugar cookie crust sets the stage for this fruit pizza with kiwi “green peppers,” fruit leather “pepperoni,” and coconut “cheese.” I suggest serving this look-alike in a pizza box to make it even more authentic!
My personal favorite is the Cheeseburger and French Fries (NOT) Cake. This is a super-sized dessert that is really three desserts in one: cake, brownie, and cookies!
The hamburger bun is yellow cake, the hamburger patty is a brownie, and the french fries are sugar cookies. This is one April Fool’s joke that any sweet tooth would appreciate!
