April Fools Day!!!  Pasta Bake…or is it?

Our neighbor surprised us by mowing our yard.  I wanted to say thank you and bake them something, but I wanted it to be something different…I had seen all sorts of fun April Fools jokes…grapes inside of chocolate wrapper, tomatoes inside chocolate wrapper so…fun tricks…then I saw  one joke that involved Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

I LOVE Ferrero Rocher chocolate!  Any excuse to eat their chocolate, and I’m in!

We started with Krispy Kreme doughnut cake mix.  It coming with a glaze was key!

While the instructions don’t tell you how to bake 2-8×8 pans, I did 350 for 15 minutes and they turned out perfect.

We let the cakes cool, then used icing the make ‘noodles’. 

My daughter loves putting the Ferrero Rocher ‘meatballs’ ontop.

Then, for the sauce, we opened a tiny hole in the glaze pouch, added red food coloring, mushed it around until I thought it was well blended and then it was done!


We delivered our ‘pasta bake’and our neighbor was happily fooled!
Nothing big, but was delicious and fun!

Remember, they will love your effort!



Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
