In addition to pasting fish on the backs of unsuspecting victims, people here seem to celebrate the 1st of April with all kinds of delicious fish-shaped foods: cakes, pastries, chocolates. To make up for the breakfast prank, I decided to surprise the kids with this cake:
Of course, in the spirit of April Fool's Day, I couldn't resist telling the kids that the cake was actually made of fish. (It's not.) But it's not too much of a stretch, since, as Will reminded me, "They do eat frog's legs here, after all."
Will was going to eat it no matter what, but Kate? She wasn't so sure.
The verdict? Delicious!
They said they'd eat fish cake anytime. And me? I'm already busy dreaming up even better pranks for next year...
