Poisson d'Avril!

This summer, Canoe Island will be offering only sugar-free desserts.

April Fools, obviously! We'll be eating decadent French pastries and desserts all summer long. 
The French are celebrating April Fools' Day by turning each other into "Poisson d'Avril," which involves taping a paper fish onto an unsuspecting person's back. 

The holiday may make more sense to Americans when you learn that Patisseries take the opportunity to make fish-shaped pastries and chocolates.

The blog Paris Breakfasts have some lovely photos of chocolate fish:
