April fool's day ideas
LET'S CELEBRATE APRIL FOOD'S DAY
April Fool's Day has the potential to be one of the most fun and delicious days of the year! While most people default to cruel and unsettling pranks, one of my favorite ways to celebrate is by making imposter foods. This is good-hearted and a literal treat for everyone. The recipes below are some of the most popular that I have ever taught and I'm sure your kids will not forget tricking unsuspecting family members into eating a cupcake that looks like a burger!
Imposter foods are the kind of trickster activity that we can all enjoy!
To create these sneaky treats, you will need our Vanilla Cupcake recipe.

Oh BREAD... why are you SO good?
Did you know that it is estimated that humans began to bake bread around 10,000 years ago?
When ancient humans started to transition from a nomadic lifestyle to a more fixed homestead, they began to farm various grains and experimented with grinding the grains into flour and "baking" bread. This style of baking was much different than the form we are familiar with today.
Watch the video below with your kids to enjoy some full-on belly laughs. Enjoy!
I had a few questions come my way, regarding summer camp enrollment.
Can siblings or friends take the class together?
Yes, siblings and friends can take the class together as long as they are participating on one device for no extra cost.
We would like to participate in just one or two classes per week. Do you have drop-in options for the summer camps?
Yes, we have drop-in options for all but two camps this summer. See the video below.
Do you have a recipe from your childhood that is so rich in nostalgia that you are immediately transported to your grandmother's kitchen? We want to know what reminds you of home and share in the joy!
