One of my favourite food trends that’s been going around this year has got to be foods that look like other foods or “tasty fakes” as they were called on the Simpsons (side note: I would like to eat Marge’s Dessert Dogs — no cartoon food has ever sounded more delicious!). We’ve seen sushi burgers and sushi tacos … and okay, most of the tasty fakes I’ve been seeing are made from sushi. These cake recipes can be for the sweet lovers looking for something healthy or for the person who doesn’t have a sweet tooth but still wants to celebrate.
The premise of these cakes recipes that aren’t cakes is simple: stack together a pile of foods that aren’t cake, ice them with something that isn’t icing and decorate with something that isn’t fondant. You want it to look like a cake at first glance and then be an awesome surprise when inspected or cut open. Check out these recipes and tell us if you’ve ever made one of these yourself!
