April Fools Fun–“Cupcakes”

on April 2, 2014

I saw this idea on Pinterest, and when my daughter asked what we were doing for April Fools day, I knew this was perfect.  As I’ve said in previous posts, my daughter is a cake decorating fanatic.  All you need to do is search Pinterst or Google and type in “April fools cupcake” and you will see a wide variety of options for this fun dinner item.

The cupcakes themselves are mini-meatloaves topped with mashed potato frosting.  The original picture I found had the potatoes dyed pink and purple–but I just couldn’t bring myself to do that.  So, we had plain old white “frosting.”  Kiddo was really surprised and thought it was a fun joke.  The only problem is that now, whenever I make meatloaf, I was told we need to make them the “fancy” way.  But she said not to worry, she will do the piping for me.


One of the fancy “cupcakes.”

I did have to transfer the meat loafs to new paper liners after they baked, because there was a pool of drippings in each cup. Next time I will just do them in the tins without liners.
