My husband loves April Fool’s Day pranks, so this year I got one up on him! He’s been doing great with cutting down on the sweets, so when he got home this evening and saw this cake, he got a little excited. If you can’t tell my prank from the picture, the cake isn’t a cake at all. It is a 2 layered meatloaf in place of the cake with icing made from mashed potatoes. The decoration on top is just green peas with a dot of ketchup for color!
I made my usual meatloaf recipe that is found here: Brown Sugar Glazed Meatloaf.
Make meatloaf in 2 round cake pans.
Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour & 15 minutes or until cooked through.
Top with mashed potatoes.
Decorate by making flowers with 3 green peas.
Make brown sugar glaze from meatloaf recipe. Put dots in the middle of the peas and use the rest to serve with dinner.
