This is such a fun idea! I made these for April Fools this year, using Pillsbury Orangesicle frosting for the "cheese" and the Buttermilk Pound Cake II recipe from this site for the bread. That bread is a bit crumbly for this application, but with some careful handling, it still made for a very fun presentation--plus the orangesicle complements plain pound cake perfectly! Highly recommended project for your little ones--mine both loved it! Read More

This was hilarious. Too bad the "critic" of this recipe apparently has no sense of humor. I bet they're fun at parties. I know I will be though because I'm so making this again. Read More

This is hilarious. I stumbled across this recipe and it is June. I am not waiting until next April. We are having a family vacation in a few weeks and I cant wait to spring this on the grand-kids. Grandma's grilled cheese will never be the same again. Read More

Loved this! I don't typically "grill" my grilled cheese sandwiches I brown them in my skillet. So as not to give away the trick I browned the slices in butter and they turned out great! Fooled my husband! Read More

Sear marks are key. I used an old-school electric sandwich maker. Read More

Rating it for the novelty. I served this with April fools meatloaf cupcakes from this site. My kids and hubby had no idea until they began eating. It was pretty cool. I did use marshmallow fluff instead of frosting seemed a lesser of 2 evils. It worked though!! Thanks for setting me up for an awesome mom moment. Read More
