April Fools Cupcakes

My six year old was looking forward to April Fools Day this year. He was sure he was going to get me good. So I thought I had better come up with something to pull on him. I found this idea at Family Fun. They had some really cute ideas. My boys thought I was crazy when I called them to eat and they saw a cupcake and carrots for dinner. They each at three! They thought it was great and wanted to go give cupcakes to grandma and grandpa.

April Fools Cupcakes

Meat Loaf
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Potato Frosting
3 cups mashed potatoes
Food coloring
1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. Line 12 muffin tin cups with foil bake cups. 2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full). 3. Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the cupcakes for about 15 minutes or until cooked through. 4. Divide the mashed potatoes among three small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch to create blue, yellow, and pink pastel frostings. Spread a generous dollop on each cupcake. Makes 12 cupcakes.
I added cream cheese to my mashed potatoes
