Two More April Fool's Day Fun Food Ideas
I am totally loving all of the great April Fool's Day things people have posted the past couple of weeks! I love the pranks but mostly I love the fun food. You didn't miss our Fakin' and Eggs I hope! (We're all about fun food at our house!) So we wanted to pack in two more fun April Fool's Day fun food ideas before the big day. I saw this delicious Grilled Cheese Sandwich over on this blog and had to make it. I just LOVE pound cake so how could it not be bad with frosting on it?! It was that simple. Slice up 2 pieces of pound cake. (I have the best recipe EVER that I will post soon). Tint vanilla frosting orange for the cheese and there you have it. I think I was supposed to actually grill (or toast) the slices of pound cake but I didn't want to mess with perfection. =o) This second idea was from this site. Hamburger Cookies. How could we not make these, right? We made Hot Dog Cookies earlier and we didn't want to leave out the hamburger. That would be wrong. Their hamburgers had sesame seeds on the "buns" but we chose not to put those on. We are not big sesame people and even though I tried to convince my kids that it would make them look more real, they said no way. Actually they said "hamburgers don't have seeds on them Mom. That's just ridiculous." (My daughter's new favorite word.) Ingredients: Nilla Wafers Peppermint Patties frosting (tinted yellow and red) You can put "lettuce" on them as well by tinting coconut with green food coloring. But again the response was "that's just ridiculous, Mom." Cute, right?
