Happy April Fool’s Day! We doubt anyone is throwing a party for this holiday, but that doesn’t mean cupcakes shouldn’t be involved. These sushi cupcakes are the perfect “prank” for April 1.

These mini cupcakes may look like delicious sushi rolls, and they may seem like a disgusting idea, but they’re all for show. And flavor…vanilla, that is.

One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes for Two

Let’s face it: sometimes we all need a dessert that only makes two servings. Haven’t you always wished you could make just enough dessert for yourself? Or yourself and one other person?

These are definitely your typical white cake; fluffy and soft, full of vanilla flavor, and the perfect vehicle for some fluffy white frosting. And it only takes one bowl! Not creaming, no mixer, no folding… just you, a bowl and a spoon.

Twinkie Cupcakes

Twinkie Cupcakes

Twinkies are a pop culture icon, as well as a snack cake. They’re something that everyone can recognize, even if your mom never packed one of the cream filled sponge cakes in your lunchbox when you were a kid.

Are they true to the original Twinkie? I will be the first to admit that these are not meant to be clones of the snack cake. But they are based on the same idea as the original snack cake and they taste a whole lot better than “real” Twinkies do.
