    Celeste :)'s Note:

    The first surprise here: there's not a grain of sugar in these cupcakes. The second surprise: your kids will love them anyway. TIP: I just make mashed potatoes using the instant mashed potato flakes. It is smooth, and the food coloring mixes well with it.

      I made these last year for April Fools day, using my usual meatloaf recipe as the base. I told the kids we were having a backwards meal for April Fools day - dessert first. They believed it until they dug in - and thought it was a hoot! Gobbled them up anyway!
