Tomorrow on April Fools Day, cupcake lovers could trick their friends and family with fake cupcakes. One of the best fake cupcake creations is made from mini meat-loafs with mashed potatoes as the frosting and carrots for the sprinkles. I have made these before and they are always a huge successes because they so closely resemble a real cupcake. These “cupcakes” also work well because they are in fact edible, if you are brave enough to try one! If you would rather be a little more cruel, these directions from instructables detail how to make inedible fake cupcakes. Have fun with it and don’t get fooled yourself!

Like many of you out there, I am planning on baking several dozen cupcakes this week to celebrate Easter. Although I do love cupcakes (duh!) I have to admit that sometimes I am not the best at completing recipes above a beginner level. So today I went to three of my favorite online spots to find cupcake decorating ideas and recipes. They needed to be relatively easy but have a cuteness level that was through the roof! Just try to look at these cupcakes without saying “Awww…” !
