Just because creating sweet treats that look like lunch and dinner items has become a work of art, that doesn’t mean you should be too intimidated to give it a try. Here are two tasty tricks to create delicious desserts that look like they belong in the second course.
Color is Key
The simplest tip is to think of dessert ingredients that are the same color as items you’d use for dinner or lunch prep. For example, whipped cream (homemade or store-bought) can act as sour cream or mayo. Additionally, food dye can help you be even more creative with your desserts!
Texture to Taste
Part of the fun is biting into something you expect to taste one way and getting a sweet surprise. This effect can best be achieved by swapping out ingredients that are similar in texture. Try sprinkling shredded coconut to act as the “cheese” in your dessert nachos, tacos, or salads.
