So saturday is yet another holiday. April Fools Day! Do the Cutler's celebrate it? you better beleive it. I thought i would do an early post about the day so you can be thinking of what you are going to do.
the above photo is pound cake with icing.
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.Over the years family fun has been the best resource of ideas for celebrating the day.

We always celebrated it because it is my moms birthday. She was really good about always playing a good joke. We always woke up to , "girls is snowed" which it never did. We always made cupcakes and gave them to friends made with cotton balls in them. we still do this every year.
One year we stuck a for sale sign in our front yard and watched our neighbors freak out thinking we were moving. one year i went to the grocery store and bought all the vegetables that were growing in my neighbors garden (he was a chef and always had something growing in his garden no matter the time of year it was amazing) and we put a bunch of those vegetables in his garden as if they had grown over night.
I have not come up with anything yet for this year, but you better believe i will.
get your minds thinking. and if you have any good ideas please share.
Lanessa, I was thinking it would be funny if made David believe you lost your wedding ring. you could start the joke on Friday night so it wouldn't seem so obvious!
