April 1st is fast approaching and we are in the pranking spirit! We've rounded up some light-hearted prank ideas you can whip together in your kitchen. Frankly, we wouldn't mind if someone pranked us with a few of these tasty creations.

Papaya and Custard Eggs

papaya custard eggsThese strikingly realistic faux eggs from Little Food Junction were crafted with balls of papaya and vanilla custard. If you want a less pleasant faux egg you could use cauliflower soup instead of custard, but we prefer the original—no one can stay mad when they're enjoying fresh papaya and custard from an egg shell!

Bacon Cupcakes Sunny Side Up

deliciously diabolical april fool's day pranksSpeaking of eggs, these adorable egg-lookalikes from That's So Michelle have actual bacon inside! Does your prankee like their eggs sunny side up? Promise them a delicious eggy breakfast and then present them with these. It's another tasty prank that won't stick you with any nasty grudges.

"Strawberry" Pie

Tell everyone you're having dessert for dinner and present them with this gorgeous "strawberry mousse" pie concocted by Curious Cuisiniere. By the time your kids realize this is secretly meatloaf topped with mashed potatoes (made pink with pureed beets), you'll be struggling to hold in your giggles. Cruel, but ultimately still a tasty meal.

Cat Poop Cookies

litter box cookiesNot gross enough for you yet? For those particularly fond of pranks, these disturbingly realistic cat poop cookies from Sweet Dreams are perfect. Place one on the floor, a pillow, or serve up in a "litter box" of graham cracker crumbs. 

Broccoli-Filled Chocolate Bunnies

Frozen Cereal

deliciously diabolical april fool's day pranksWant a prank that offers maximum payoff for minimal effort? She Saved has plenty of prank ideas for kids, including this appetizing breakfast. She's also got an amazing recipe for Hamburger Cookies, which are a little less cruel, if you're worried about that sort of thing. We doubt anyone's getting torn up about cereal, though.

Apple Fruit Donuts

apple donutsThese donut lookalikes from Hello, Wonderful are also perfect for kids, but they're great for the office too. Bonus points if you place them in a large donut box and leave them in the break room with a "Free Donuts" sign on top. The upside is that, even though they're not donuts, they're still totally delicious.


Spaghetti and Malt Balls

Hot Dog Bun Sugar Cookies

deliciously diabolical april fool's day pranksThese hot dog bun sugar cookies are great for young kids, an outoor barbecue, or a baseball game. They're super easy to make; just fill them with colored icing and coconut-flake faux onions. You can even make relish out of green sprinkles or chili out of melted chocolate and rice crispies. 


Cinnamon Sugar "Fries"
