Ingridiens for April Fool’s Cake

Steps to make April Fool’s Cake


Preheat the oven


Preheat the oven to 375 °F.


Prepare meat mixture


In a bowl, combine 1 jar of pizza sauce, ½ pound of crumbled Italian sausage and 1 package of pepperoni slices.


Prepare cream batter


In a different bowl, whisk 3 cups of biscuit or baking mix, ¾ cup of milk, 2 large eggs, 2 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 teaspoon of garlic salt until combined.


Prepare baking pan


Grease the bottom and up the sides of a 10-inch fluted tube pan.


Prepare “cake”


Layer half the batter over the base of the prepared baking pan and fill with the meat mixture, then finally top with the remaining half of the batter.




Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes until browned and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean.


Add cheese


Remove from the oven and invert the "cake" on a lined baking sheet. Top “cake” with cheese slices arranged all over.


Second bake


Return to the heated oven and bake for another 5 minutes until cheese has melted and is dripping down the sides.



Serve immediately and enjoy!

A lot of steps to take just to make it but it was good.

Hadassah Buschelman

It kept falling apart for me..not sure if I did something wrong but I followed the recipe. It does taste really delicious though, just kinda sad that it didn't look quite right.

Priya Lomedico

I honestly thought this would not turn out looking as good as the picture, but in the end I managed to perfect it! Will totally be making this again.

Anika Bubela

Kids loved it and ate it all up before I could even snatch a second bite! Thanks for this pizza cake!

Ivanna Liesman

Tricked my dad today, he could've sworn it was a cake with frosting, LOL! Plan went perfectly!

Nahla Mastropolo

Enjoyed everything about this meal, it was really fun to make, I did add a little bit more garlic salt and added some mayo as frosting too.

Super duper tasty and an amazing prank! Can't wait to try out the other April fool's recipes.

Janessa Lysher

This is very tasty and not hard to make at all, would recommend for anyone looking to make a good prank this April fool's day but if you want to prank a bunch of people at once, I'd go for the meatloaf cake.


Great! Thanks for sharing recipe!
