This mom is very smart. She knows how her son generally eats his cupcakes: by putting the entire thing in his mouth at once. Kinda like a duck or a dog. Sure, as an adult, I’d worry about the cupcake getting lodged in my throat and vomiting it up in front of my whole family (or better yet, the office coworkers). But kids are more carefree than thirty-something (ish) guys like me. To each their own! If that’s how you wanna eat your cupcake, more power to you, brother. But it does make you vulnerable. To what, you ask? To a mom who knows how to prank her son by frosting a cupcake with colored mustard. Meaning the entire thing is in your mouth before you can tell… it’s disgusting. Smart move, mom!
Here’s what we’ve noticed at AFV over the years. Most parents don’t like pranking their kids. But when they do, they really go for gold! They don’t just wanna jump out from behind a door to startle their kids. They wanna mess with their little heads hard core! Make them think twice before they bite into a cupcake for the rest of their lives! This mom is no exception. Think about how much time it took her to commit this prank. She had to bake the cupcakes, which usually means a trip to the grocery store to get the ingredients. She had to mix the ingredients, bake them in the oven, color the mustard with food dye (which you know was a challenge because mustard is so strongly colored to begin with). This was a several hour commitment. And let’s just say, it was worth every minute.
The video opens on the mom offering her son a cupcake. It’s an offer no kid can refuse. Has there ever been a kid who didn’t eat a cupcake when it was offered to them? This is almost too easy for the mom, it’s like shooting fish in a barrel. True to form, he puts the entire thing in his mouth as everyone watches. It takes a few seconds, but don’t worry, you don’t have to wait long before… a look of confusion, disgust even, washes over his face. “Wait,” he thinks to himself, “this frosting is a little… spicy, am I right?” Not but a few moments later, the sudden realization kicks in, mom is messing with me again. What is her problem!? Shortly thereafter, he recedes into the kitchen to spit out the contents of the mustard cupcake. Meanwhile, the whole family continues to laugh their butt off.
Imagine having a mom who likes pranking you like this! It’s so foreign to me. I have the “standard mom” who just wants to feed me and give me kisses on the cheek. I can’t conceive of what it would be like if the next time I visited home, my mom offered me some grapes, only to find out she’s rubbed the skin with hot sauce. But we salute this mom nonetheless as a trailblazer of sorts. Showing women all around the globe that just because this kid came out of your body, doesn’t mean you can’t destroy them with an epic mustard cupcake prank. You go girl!
