"Baked it in a 13x9. My son said it needed "herbs" so we sprinkled the top with 2 kinds of green sprinkles at the end."

"When I mixed the vanilla frosting and the red food coloring the color came out pink. The more red I added the pinker it got"

"Good for a laugh, didn't trick anyone. The frosting was pink, couldn't get it to go red! A bit fiddly cutting the super sticky fruit roll-ups! Use high quality white chocolate if you want curls, i used cheap stuff & it ended up looking more like white powder! Keep the finished cake cool until you need it, otherwise chocolate melts into the frosting & disapears! Tastes good, made everyone laugh!"

"My sons birthday is on April Fool's Day and this made a great fun cake for him, he even helped make it. We added chopped up gum drops to simulate veggies. (purple-black olives, green,red, and yellow-bell peppers.) Turned out great."

"Made this for the Cub Scout banquet for auction and it was a hit. Add green swedish fish for anchovies, halved Ferrero Rocher chocolates for meatballs and we had a great looking dessert pizza!"

"We are holding a cake auction at our High School for a fund raiser for the After Prom event. I am not an experienced cake maker, but these were simple and just really cute. Tomorrow is the superbowl, so I thought the pizza cakes were a good idea. One thing to remember is that, if there's time between finishing the cakes and serving them or bringing them to where you want to be, keep them cool. The chocolate will melt otherwise. Very good idea. Thanks!"
