Picture of Sponge Brownie Prank
This is a great prank for April Fools Day! The brownie looks very real but is just made from a sponge and frosting. The best part of this is it only takes about 5 minutes and everybody will fall for it because nobody is expecting a brownie to be fake. It is so hilarious to see people bite into the brownie.

The materials needed are:
Scissors
Knife
Butter Knife

Step 2: How to cut the sponge

Picture of How to cut the sponge
I found that the easiest way to cut the sponge is to take a serrated knife and cut it about half way down. Next take the scissors to cut the part of the sponge that is still attached.

Step 3: Spread the Icing

Take the butter knife and spread the fudge all over the sponge except for the bottom. Make sure the sides are well covered. When you finish spreading the icing put on the sprinkles place on a plate and just wait for someone to take a bite.

I would totally fall for this one!
Someond did this to me but he filled it with icing and I didnt notice untill i ate the whole cupcake and he told me
Oh man, that's funny! I'm imagining biting a sponge right now and it doesn't seem very pleasurable (especially when expecting a brownie) but watching someone else do it sure does!
