i spy: pretty fakes




Why do we love pretty fakes? No...they're nothing new, but they're mighty clever- and popping up everywhere, it seems. Some of my recent favorites above... a jello lime crafted to look like a watermelon; a cupcake meant to look like an ice cream cone; and one of my all-time faves- the potted cake. What are your favorite fakes?

The potted plant cake is one of my favorite Martha Stewart ideas. And the frosting is delicious to boot.

My friend throws an elaborate Harry Potter party every time a new movie comes out. I made these as part of my Professor Sprout costume. It was a total hit!
