April Fools Day Fun ~ Grilled Cheese and Orange Koolaid

Grilled Cheese for April Fools' Day

We usually use Entenmann's pound cake but I could not find it this 
year so I substituted Angel food cake.

Grilled Cheese for April Fools' Day

  • Pound cake (we used Entenmann's brand)
  • 1 cup buttercream or white frosting (canned is just fine)
  • Yellow and red food coloring
Cut the pound cake into bread-like slices and toast them in a toaster oven just until they turn golden brown. Once they've cooled for a few minutes, stack two slices for each sandwich and cut the stack in half diagonally (slicing the sandwich before you fill it makes for fewer crumbs).
Now tint the frosting by stirring in a few drops of yellow and red food coloring (more yellow than red) to get a shade of orange that resembles American cheese.
Carefully spread frosting between the slices of each half sandwich. If you mound the frosting on one slice, then top it with the other and gently press down, the frosting will ooze out a bit and look all the more like melted cheese. Makes one sandwich.

Orange Kool Aid aka Orange Jello!

Gelled Juice

Gelled Juice
April 1st is a day for fooling, so why not make a little mischief this year? A thirsty family member is the perfect target for this glassful of trickery that's impossible to drink. And since the undrinkable beverage is made by the batch, you'll be able to fool more than one person.
  • Lemon-flavored gelatin
  • Red food coloring
  1. Following the package directions, mix up a box of lemon-flavored gelatin (we added a drop of red food coloring to darken it). Pour the mixture into clear glasses and insert a drinking straw into each. Place the glasses in the refrigerator to set. When they're ready, serve the jiggling juice to the next parched target (or two!) looking for a cool drink.
