  • Prank Letter

Prank Gift Box

You can squirm with laughter when you hand this gift over to the unsuspecting friend who will not be able to get it open. Hand him/her a card to the gift that says "Happy April Fools' Day!"

You will need:

  • Small gift box with lid
  • White craft glue
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbon or bow
  • Marker

How to make the Prank Gift Box:

  • Take the box and place anything inside it so that it feels a bit heavy. It can be a paperweight or even some pebbles wrapped in cotton balls.
  • After that, glue the lid to the box and set aside to dry.
  • Now wrap the box nicely with some colorful and glossy paper. Also add a ribbon or bow to make it look all the more beautiful.
  • Gift it to an unsuspecting member in the family or one of your friends. When they will be striving to open it, and will look seemingly dejected because they won’t be able to, hand them the card with the April Fools' message! 
  • Please note that, if you are using pebbles or pennies in the box, you have to line the box with cotton balls or they should be wrapped in cotton balls; otherwise these pennies or pebbles will rattle in the box.

Fake Cake

What can be more fun than tricking your friends with a tasty looking fake cake! The fun is going to be all the more when your friends will try to cut it.

You will need:

  • Round cake pan
  • Container of store-bought frosting
  • Sprinkles or nonpareils
  • Icing spatula
  • Cake plate
  • Wax paper

How to make the Fake Cake:

  • For making the Fake Cake, on a sheet of wax paper, place the cake pan (inverted).
  • Now, with the frosting, frost the whole of the cake pan. Pay special attention to the edges so that they cannot be seen through.
  • Now, slide the wax paper carefully to get your hand underneath the pan. Remove the frosted cake pan from the wax paper and put it on the cake plate.
  • With sprinkles or nonpareils, decorate the edges of the cake.
  • Pick up any generic frosting from the dollar store. This is not going to be a real frosting on a real cake, so you may compromise on that front if you want to.
