Don't Be the April Fool! Here's a Prank You'll Love to Pull
Food pranks range from the cruel and unusual (filling doughnuts with mayonnaise instead of cream, or the old toothpaste-in-the-Oreo-cookie trick) to mild annoyances (switching Cereals into different boxes or adding a few drops of green food dye to your milk). This food prank is an oldie, but a goodie, and is sure to get a few people to do a double-take.
- Pound cake
- Buttercream frosting
- Yellow and red food dye
- Cut your pound cake into slices and toast them up until they're nice and golden on the outside. Let it cool.
- Add a few drops of yellow and red food dye to your frosting and mix it until it reaches the desired shade of cheddar orange. Spread it into the toasted pound cake.
- Cut your "grilled cheese sandwich" into triangles and set it up on a plate. Add a few toasted crumbs around the plate if you've got 'em to make it look more like a freshly sliced grilled cheese.
- Await your prey and giggle at their expression when they discover they've been fooled by the food prank master.
