Food for fools

(This isn't sewing-related, but I thought this was a pretty clever idea, so...) There is a weekly coffee hour at work, where people bring donuts, scones, and other such tasty delicacies to enjoy while socializing a bit. When we realized that my fiancĂ© (yup, we met at work) had inadvertently signed up for yesterday, April 1, we decided to make the best of it!

From left to right, meatloaf, sushi, french fries, and grilled cheese sandwiches.

The meatloaf was actually cocoa rice krispy treat with dried fruit.

The sushi was pound cake and fruit roll-ups, topped with coconut and candy.

The french fries were breadstick dough rolled in sugar, and the ketchup strawberry jam.

And the grilled cheese sandwiches were toasted pound cake with buttercream frosting in between. Toasting pound cake is not easy!

It seems to have been a hit, and a few people were even fooled!

Here are links to the recipes.
