Not everything is as it seems. That's what the kids learned last night on Kids Baking Championship, when they found out they'd be baking fake-out foods, like burgers, tacos and pizza that are all actually desserts masquerading as savory foods. Most of the kids were excited by the prospects, but their baking assignments were drawn at random, leaving a few competitors with dishes they weren't too happy with. In a twist of fate, the one kid who hated her assigned dish won, while the one who was happiest about his was sent packing. It just came down to execution and a sidekick dish that didn't do the entire package justice.

These fake-out foods may look more difficult to make than they really are; broken down into steps, they become a fun and easy project to make on the weekend. We've compiled some of our favorite deceptively sweet treats that will leave you and your friends doing a second take. Let this roundup of recipes get your ideas flowing!
