Foolin' Around

I've never been real big on doing anything for April Fool's Day.  So today when Ryan said "Mom, I think you're beautiful." my heart melted just a little bit.  Of course that statement was quickly followed by "April fools!".  After I pretended to be all heartbroken about it, he assured me that he really did think I was beautiful after all.  What a nice little boy.  

Anyway, as I was saying, I don't usually do anything special on April 1st.  But then I saw these super cute cupcakes and I had to make them.

 Mashed potatoes and gravy cupcakes


Spaghetti and meatballs cupcakes


And then if you put them all on a plate together they look even cuter.


Apparently Greg cannot appreciate cupcakes like this though.  
His exact words were "Are they supposed to look like that?"  
"No," I said, "I just slapped some frosting on them and they just turned out that way." 
 "Why would you want your cupcakes to look like mashed potatoes and gravy?" he asked. 
 "Because they're April Fool's Day cupcakes."

At least now he understands that there is a method to my madness.

By the way, not only were they cute, but they were delicious too!


  1. You are amazing!! They look so fun.

  2. I love Greg's reaction! They look so cute and yummy.

  3. Love your cupcake ideas...hope I can remember for next year!
