These 10 Foods in Disguise Will Have You Doing a Double Take
Turns out, humans aren’t the only ones who can dress up as someone else for Halloween. While you might be making a flapper costume this year, your cupcake could one-up you by masquerading as a hamburger. Uh, yeah, you read that right. These foods may look familiar at first glance, but underneath their costumes, they’re different things entirely. Zoodles aren’t the only dressed-up foods on the scene anymore. Check out these 10 tricky food and drink items (and consider serving them at your own Halloween party!).
1. Frushi: These cute little rolls may look like raw fish, but they’re actually made with fruit! Frushi is a sweet vegan sushi option that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser any time you entertain. Pro tip: Coconut sugar is a fantastic addition to frushi, keeping it sweet and delicious.
2. Hamburger Cupcakes: It’s true — these savory, greasy-looking treats are actually sweet, delicate cupcakes. And the “sesame seeds” on top of the buns? SPRINKLES, baby!
3. Quinoa Sushi: Although this dish is still *technically* sushi, it’s definitely got a creative twist: It’s made with quinoa, rather than traditional sushi rice. This gives you the added bonus of adding even more healthy protein to your meal.
4. Red Velvet Milk and Cookies Shot: Shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots! Of milk and cookies? This red velvet cookie cup holds milk, making for a perfect all-in-one dessert. Spiking the milk with Baileys or vodka is completely optional.

I love how creative people feed on each other, how one person's concept can inspire a bigger and better idea. My cupcakes made in egg shells are one of the most popular posts ever on my blog, but @aimadeitforyou took that concept to the next level by hiding my carrot curd inside the eggs as a yolk. Amazing!! Click the link in my profile to go to her site and see how the eggs look when opened up. Plus, aren't her nails just perfect! I always forget to paint mine before a shoot. #eastereggs #easterrecipes #easterbrunch #firstdayofspring #babyblue #vanillacupcakes #surpriseinside #baking #dessert #brunch #cupcakes #cupcakestagram #cupcakelovers #cupcakesofinstagram #cupcakelove #cupcaker http://www.aimadeitforyou.com/eggshell-cupcakes/

5. Eggshell Cupcake: Speaking of masquerading desserts, check out this cupcake in an eggshell. Your guests will be super surprised to peel back these shells only to discover a tiny pastry waiting for them in lieu of an egg.
6. Cocktail in a Takeout Box: What would you do if you opened up a takeout box expecting fried rice, only to discover a delicious Thai cocktail waiting inside? We think these boxes are an uber fun way to serve drinks at any kind of party or get-together — just make sure your cartons are water tight.
7. Sushi Tacos: Instead of a corn or flour tortilla, these tacos are wrapped in seaweed. And they’re surprisingly DELICIOUS.

8. Plantain Crust Pizza: Instead of traditional pizza dough, why not lighten things up with baked plantains? They’re sweet, carby and completely gluten-free. This vegan, super-healthy creation is topped with onions, eggplant, peppers and tomato sauce.
9. Chocolate Chip Milk and Cookies Shot: If you’re not much of a red velvet fan, try this chocolate chip milk and cookies shot recipe. Bonus points if you cover the rim with rainbow sprinkles.
10. Sushi Burrito: If nori (that’s seaweed for you newbies) can be incorporated into tacos, why not burritos? This burrito-shaped sushi creation will essentially taste just like sushi, but it’ll come packaged in a convenient, burrito-like form.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
