20 Dinner-Disguised Desserts

These Deceptive Confections Seem Saltier Than They Are

— September 29, 2012 — Special
The shock factor is what makes these dinner-disguised desserts so intriguing. Imagine taking a bite into what you think is a hamburger, only to be met by a mouthful of cake -- great surprise, if you ask me. With the rising popularity of food art, confusing confections are becoming harder and harder to spot. Some creative cake artists are even tapping into pop culture by mimicking popular foods from chain restaurants. An example of this can be seen in the chicken nugget cake pops, which look suspiciously like the meaty bites sold at Mickey D's.

Other interesting disguised desserts include sushi-inspired cupcakes, roasted pig birthday cakes and even sweet sausage desserts. Pleasantly surprise the sweets lover in your life with any of these confusing confections.
