Playing fun pranks on your friends is an April Fools’ Day tradition, so here’s a roundup of some awesome “trick” foods that will keep your nearest and dearest on their toes from sunup ’til sundown. Whether you’re pulling a cereal switch-out on the kiddos, or busting out a break-time snack to confound your co-workers, these ideas will throw even the most cautious of people for a loop.

SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS

Bake a cake in an ovenproof PYREX® 2.5-QT MIXING BOWL and make it look like everyone’s favorite dinner. The best part? This plate of Spaghetti and Meatballs is actually dessert! Get the Recipe Here (via Betty Crocker)

DIG INTO DESSERT

Your kids won’t know what to do when you tell them you’re eating worms after dinner. In reality, you’ll be serving up Edible Chocolate Mousse Gardens. Don’t have mini mason jars? Don’t worry! This recipe looks just as cute in PYREX® CUSTARD CUPS 6-OZ 4-PC SET Get the Recipe Here (via Bake Love Give)

WORKPLACE WHIMSY

Today is the perfect day to lighten the mood around the office. Catch co-workers off guard by hiding some healthy veggies inside a doughnut box or cake pan! We expect they’ll laugh off this sneaky snack-time swap…but you may want to bring some sugary treats just in case they were really looking forward to those sweets.

NOT-QUITE CUPCAKES

Fool the whole family with some not-quite cupcakes. Whip up mini meat loaves in PYREX® 10-OZ CUSTARD CUPS and top them with creamy mashed potatoes. Garnish with chopped bacon and chives for a delish April Fools’ dinner disguised as dessert. Get the Recipe Here (via First Look Then Cook)

SCHOOLYARD SHENANIGANS

Why should you get to have all the fun? Help your kids pull a fast one on their friends by printing out some “Doughnut Seed” packets like the ones available at Printables4Mom and filling them with O-shaped breakfast cereal. Your kids will get a kick out of being on the sneaky side of the schoolyard shenanigans.

BEST BREAKFAST EVER

Treat your family to the ultimate morning starter—bacon and eggs. Only, there are no bacon or eggs in this fun dish! Can you guess what’s on the plate? Discover how to make this sweet treat and serve up the yummiest morning ever. Get the Recipe Here (via Not Quite Nigella).

FAKE-OUT FRIES

This tasty take on fries will deceive even your least gullible friends. Thaw your favorite frozen pound cake and cut to look like crinkle-cut fries. Drizzle with melted butter, then pop them in the oven on a cookie sheet. Bake to a golden brown and voilà! Fabulous fake-out food for your friends. Serve with strawberry jam disguised as ketchup.
