Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potatoes Frosting1

Happy April Fools’ Day.  Have you been fooled today yet?  The day is still young.  While there are no announcements of engagement, pregnancy, or moving to Australia in this post (who am I kidding?), I am going to share with you this April Fools’ Day recipe and video I got to style for Allrecipes.com ~ Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potatoes Frosting.  These are so believable, you might just fool your friends and family at dinner.  Better yet, they are also delicious.


For the frosting, I chose to color the mashed potatoes with red and green food coloring.  Feel free to pick your own colors and try going with natural colors, using beet and spinach juice (or even blueberry juice).  Add as much color as your wish to achieve desired shade, but don’t go too wild, making sure the color is still frosting-believable.

When it came to decorating, I designed Vanilla Raspberry cupcakes with natural mashed potatoes and cherry tomatoes, Strawberry Shortcake with red mashed potatoes and Parmesan cheese, and Mint Chocolate with green mashed potatoes and bacon bits.  What combinations will you come up with?
