My son just pulled the best April Fools trick on his unsuspecting girlfriend. He iced and decorated a balloon, telling her he’d baked a cake. She was starving but held off until after they ran the dog.My plan was to catch it on video – I can’t believe he didn’t wait! Out in the garden, I didn’t hear them come in. Suddenly, screams erupted in the kitchen – explosive perfection.

    • He blew the balloon up nice and fat then turned it on its side and taped it to a cardboard “sleeve” then taped the cardboard to a pan before icing it. The cardboard sleeve/collar made the bottom squarish so it wasn’t obviously a balloon. His girlfriend remarked it was a very large cake to which he replied “oh, it’s angel food”. When she went to cut it he handed her our sharpest (pointed) knife and told her she needed to cut in from the top or else it would squish because the cake was soft.It exploded the moment she pressed down. It was awesome! 🙂
