Win April Fools’ Day with These Deliciously Deceptive Tea Sandwiches
Fool all your friends and family with these not-what-they-seem tea sandwiches.
Nothing makes a better April Fools' prank then presenting your closest friends and family with food that looks like one thing but is really something else entirely. Take for instance the tray of tea sandwiches pictured above. We'll let you in on a little secret — they're not sandwiches at all, nor are they all that savory! They’re actually miniature layer cakes in disguise. Did we fool you?
To create these deliciously deceptive treats all by yourself, use store-bought pound cakes for the bread and sweet spreads for the fillings. See the recipes below for inspiration. And remember on 4/01, you may want to exercise some caution before you take that very first bite!
