Meat Loaf Cake for Two is a hilarious April Fool’s Day dinner. It is a meat loaf with potato “frosting” which resembles a carrot cake! I literally cannot get enough of these April Fools Day recipes. I love to bring an element of fun to my cooking and this is one of the best times of year for having fun in the kitchen!

For this meat loaf “cake”, you simply need to make two meat patties by combining beef with carrot, oats, milk, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. To make the “frosting” puree potatoes and use this to sandwich the cooked patties together. Coat the outside of the “cake” with potato. Pipe tinted cream cheese with pesto on top and coat the sides with toasted breadcrumbs. Enjoy!
