This has been the extent of my April Fool's celebration the last couple of years - in fact this is the picture of my first April Fool's theme meal in 2009. I made a meat loaf and iced it with mashed potatoes and put it on a cake stand. I took a regular meat loaf recipe and tweaked it a bit by adding frozen spinach (I freeze spinach in a ziploc bag and add a handful or two to different recipes) and grated parmesan cheese. This meat loaf was so good in the cake form that when I made this same meat loaf again it didn't taste as good. After I iced the meatloaf with potatoes I put it in the oven to warm up some more so if you do this make sure your cake stand is oven safe because the meat loaf will get cold while you decorate it. This year I am going to pipe on some mashed potatoes to make it look more like a decorated cake, and I am thinking I might try radish roses as well.
Thanks for looking!
