Sponge Cake, Anyone?
Cut two yellow sponges in half diagonally. Stack two sponge halves and glue them together. Repeat with the other two. Then add a piece of cardboard between the stacks. Glue each stack to the cardboard so that they line up and look like a slice of layer cake. Let the “cake” dry, then place it on a plate. Use real frosting to “ice” the slice and to cover up the cardboard where it shows between the sponges. Decorate it with sprinkles, then offer the slice to an unsuspecting guest.
Breakfast’s on You
A few days in advance, cut a white paper plate to fit in a disposable plastic bowl. Top the paper plate with cereal, and add white glue to make it seem as if the bowl is full of milky cereal. Let it dry. On April Fools’ Day, say to your prankee, “Watch, I can balance this—whoops!” Then “spill” it toward the person.
Hold the Salt, Please
Take the lid off a saltshaker. Put plastic wrap over the top of the container. Put the lid back on, and trim off the excess plastic wrap. Do this trick before a meal, then watch your family try to shake out the salt!
Thickest Fruit Punch Ever
Make fruit-flavored gelatin and pour it into clear glasses while it’s still liquid. Place a straw in each glass. Chill the gelatin until it sets, then serve the “fruit punch.”
