April Fool's Day Spaghetti & Meatballs Cupcakes

Do you love spaghetti and meatballs.... these sweet cupcakes will give you a giggle for sure!

Happy April Fool's Day!!

Do you love to play pranks on April Fool's Day?  My family and I love to prank each other.  My family and friends have pulled some great tricks on me in past years.... I guess I am that gullible! 

I love "prank" food too.  I enjoy thinking about what I should make here on the blog for April Fool's Day weeks in advance. This time around I made these fun Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcakes for my kids and they went crazy for them!

First of all... they love the "meatballs" that I used!  Then they couldn't resist the yummy vanilla cupcakes with the vanilla frosting and strawberry jam.  It's just good from top to bottom!

Now you can make cupcakes or a two layer 8 or 9 inch round cake instead.  I also made a small round cake and placed it in a pasta bowl... my daughter looked at the photo and was almost convinced it was a a real bowl of pasta for a minute....not bad for Mom! 

So, it's not too late to make these for your April Fool's Day.  A box of cake mix, a tub of frosting, strawberry jam and box of chocolates later... you also can give you family something sweet and funny to enjoy this April Fool's Day!

April Fool's Day Spaghetti & Meatballs Cupcakes
Recipe idea by Ramona from Kitchen Simmer

1 box white cake mix 

1-2 tubs white vanilla frosting
12 pack Ferrero Rocher chocolates
1-2 cups strawberry jam (as needed)

Step 1: Mix box cake mix according to instructions on package and bake in cupcake pan or if you prefer in two round 8 or 9 inch cake pans.  Allow cakes to cool to room temperature before proceeding.

Step 2:  Frost cake or cupcakes with a light layer of white frosting.  

Step 3:  Warm jam in microwave for 20 seconds until it becomes thinned out. Stir well and allow to cool down slightly. 

Step 4:  Place Ferrero Rocher chocolates into jam and coat well.

Step 5:  Use a cake frosting tip that will give you "spaghetti strands" and top cake or cupcakes with the frosting "strands". 

Step 6:  Place "meatballs and sauce" on each cupcake or on top of 8 or 9 inch round cake.
