So Funny!
I have a couple books full of that stuff! They have an aspic and veggie aquarium, what looks like a log cake that is actually a stacked sandwich "iced" with cream cheese and filled with meat spreads and cheese, and several "pies" made to look like they are topped with fluffy meringue when in fact it is mayo! EW!

This link has some hilarious foods that look like desserts but are in fact NOT.

Look at the Knudsens, Jello and Potpourri sections especially.

Love that wedding "cake" though. Have not seen that one in a while!

Martha Stewart made a meatloaf cake...ground meat inside with vegetables as filling, mashed potatoes as "frosting" and various veggies as decorations. It was really cute/funny... I can't find the image of the whole cake, but here is a slice icon_smile.gif

Above Martha's is a different meatcake, also interesting. Not as "pretty" as Martha's...Just the thing for a carnivore's birthday! icon_biggrin.gif
