Madeleine's First April Fool's Joke

So my 6-year-old daughter has a little bit too much of her dad in her. She's been dying to do a good April Fool's Joke since she really grasped the concept of the holiday last year. So she's been plotting this thing since she got a cookbook for Christmas and finally got to launch it on her mom this morning.

We took some pound cake (it's better with angel food cake, but the bakery was having a sale) and mixed food coloring in some icing until with got it the orange of processed cheese. We sliced the cake and trimmed it to look like slices of bread and put the icing inbetween like a grilled cheese sandwich. The result looks pretty convincing and my wife is pretty accomodating so she bravely bit into the strangest breakfast-in-bed ever offered. Braver still that this is April 1st.
