The kitchen isn’t probably the first place you’d think to cook up an April Fool’s gag, which is why it’s perfect: no one will suspect a thing. While April Fool’s jokes have the potential to leave a decidedly bitter aftertaste (at least when it comes to their intended target), there’s no reason you can’t have a little fun on the sweet side. An “egg” sunny side up and a couple pieces of “toast” are actually melted marshmallow, frosting and sliced pound cake. Sushi as an after-school snack? Ha! Those rolls are really wrapped with Fruit Roll-Ups. And can we interest you in a spoonful of … dirt?
