April Fool’s Day Cupcakes: Cupcake Corner

Welcome to Cupcake Corner! My little corner of the cupcake world!

April Fool’s Day is a day to have fun playing pranks on family and friends. In our house, we have fun with our food! I usually make a fun April Fool’s Day Dinner {I will update it this year for you} and of course, we have cupcakes too!

Here are some ideas for having fun with your food…cupcake style!

Chicken Nugget & Fry Cupcakes

I created these for Andrew’s birthday last year, but they are perfect for April Fool’s Day.

Corn on the Cob and Hamburger Cupcakes

Corn on the Cob and Hamburgers that I made for Memorial Day were tons of fun! I have a video for them too.

Snow Cone Cupcakes

Your kiddos will love these Snow Cone Cupcakes…there is video for these too.

Spaghetti & Meatballs Cupcakes

These fun cupcakes were shared by Kimberly from Raising Olives. She made them for her hubby’s birthday.

TV Dinner Cupcakes

Delectable Edibles created this Mock TV Dinner. I found them via Tip Junkie…she has more ideas too!

    One year I made my kids “grilled cheese” which was really toasted pound cake with orange frosting and individual “cakes” which were really a simple sandwich made with hamburger buns and frosted with tinted cream cheese. It was a big hit!

    Since April 1 is on a Friday this year, and they will be at school for lunch and then going to Grandma’s for dinner, I’m trying to figure out a good “trick” breakfast!

They look FUNtastic for the whole family…From this post I think the TV Dinner tray is so clever, the kids would adore this and I’m sure you could tell some wonderful storytelling from the eating results!

    Hi!I’m a journalism student who’s working on a multimedia project about cupcakes, and I was wondering if I could use the picture of your McDonald’s cupcakes as part of it. It’s due this Friday, so a quick response would be really really helpful. Thanks!!!
