There's been a tradition going around for April Fool's Day to either make cake look like other foods:
... or make other food look like cake:
It's a literal beef cake!
Sonya D. here even did both: The "cake" is meatloaf with mashed potato icing, and the grilled cheese "sandwiches" are cake!
Cute! Now ... SOMEONE BRING ME A CAKE SAMMICH.
Naturally, all the big chain bakeries have decided to get in on this action, churning out a veritable plethora of faux food guaranteed to fool ANYONE who is standing fifty feet away and just got those pupil-dilating drops put in from the ophthalmologist within the past hour.
I think it's supposed to be a hot dog and fries.
I KNOW it looks like moldy doody.
How about single servings of spaghetti and meatballs, macaroni and cheese, and tiny cherry pies?
Or these things?
The bakers actually succeeded on this one:
Although I don't remember the Bog of Eternal Stench having quite that much silly string.
Much as it pains me to admit it, sometimes the "corn on the cob" cupcakes can be pretty darn cute.
Happily, this isn't one of those times.
This one's my favorite, though - because only a wreckerator could fail this badly to make a cupcake look like a cupcake:
When all else fails, though, nothing fools customers into believing there are real raw green beans and potato chips stuck on the cupcakes like sticking real raw green beans and potato chips on the cupcakes:
Let's not ask what the lumps are in the other cupcake's icing, though, ok? I'd like to eat again someday.
Thanks to Shellis S., Mia & Trinh, Kris D., Tracy W., Sabrina P., Kae B., & Sheila M. for the faux food foolishness.
