April Fool's Day 2013 - Grilled Cheese Peas & Carrots for Dessert | NothingButCountry.com

April Fool’s Day was alot of fun and so very easy. I almost didn’t do anything for the day since Easter was just 24 hours before.

However I couldn’t stand it and decided to go ahead with the plans I had originally wanted to do.

This did not take me long at all and I prepared the fake grilled cheese and peas/carrot dinner while the kids were in school.

I purchased a pound cake from my local Publix grocery store.

I needed to make 4 sandwiches after I cut off the ends I divided the loaf up into 8 slices.

Buttering just 1 side of the bread aka Pound Cake…

I grilled it in a very hot pan that is made for grilling and would leave the grilled marks on the bread. I only grilled/cooked the bread on 1 side since my kids wont see the other side.

I had left over butter cream frosting in my refrigerator already from a previously making cupcakes however you can use any white canned frosting that is your favorite. I added mostly yellow to my frosting with a touch of orange.

Frosted 1 side of the pound cake. Be sure to put frosting on the side that you did not grill. I also made sure it was a sloppy job and extra frosting along the edges that would be used to ooze out later.

Add your other piece of pound cake and press down till you are happy with the cheese/frosting ooze.

About 2 months ago I found these Jelly Belly Peas & Carrots at my local Dollar Tree. I bought a few bags. I used 1 bag per person.

To fool my kids, I put out other parts of our dinner on the table ahead of time. Since Easter was the day before we still had potato salad, fruit salad and deviled eggs. So Grilled Cheese with Easter Ham in the sandwiches were perfect to make for the REAL dinner.

The kids could smell and see me making grilled cheese. They all went to the table waiting for me to finish the very last grilled cheese and serve them their plates. When I brought their plates out they really thought it was what I just finished grilling up.

My son, although he really DID enjoy the taste of the dessert his taste buds were extremely confused biting into this sandwich.

I then brought out the REAL dinner, and let them proceed to get their sides and hold off on the dessert till after they ate :)

Can you spot the REAL dinner sandwich? HAHAH! Looks pretty close- only the Easter Ham gives it away.

The kids were quite fooled. The hubby was totally in the know- and he played it off very well for me. Getting the kids gathered at the table and getting them ready for the trick. :)

It was a fun night! Even better it was on a Monday and this was a great treat to have for Family Home Evening.

It’s getting harder and harder to trick my kids each year. They are starting to suspect things and I was glad I was able to pull off one more year. This is going to be tough to beat next year!

Hope you all had a fun April Fool’s day!

    This is great, I tricked my kids all day, I spread my pranks out. I think the funniest one I did to them was the brown e’s. I asked if they wanted brownies for dessert. Sure they said! Well, I cut out brown construction paper E’s and put them in a bowl, it was so funny!
