I was at a shop the other day in another state and saw a cookbook that had...it's so hard to accuratly describe it which is why I am probably not able to correctly google it...anyway.  For example, there was a recipe that was a twinkie or something, with yellow frosting on it, with yellow and occasional white jelly beans and then a slightly melted yellow starburst on top to make it look like corn on the cob.  There was also a sugar cookie type of pizza that actually looked like spaghetti with meatballs.  I have found a couple recipes online...but I was really hoping to find the cookbook itself.  Of course, any search for "fake food" comes up with tons of plastic food items.  The best I could find was an April Fools Day type website with a couple recipes...I really wish I had gotten the book.  Anyone know what book it was or have any ideas for a better google search?

Hi Erika,

Not sure if this is what you're looking for...

From what you were describing, this sounded similar.

Try these two:

 
I have both of them and there are variations of everything  you described in them.
