This image (credit: Cracked) shows what looks like a bunch of bright, delicious ice cream cones. The caption tells us otherwise--these aren't frozen treats, they're colored mashed potatoes! This kind of food trickery is not uncommon in product photography. In fact, most food photography is faked in some way (and completely inedible). Burgers are made of plastic, milk is actually glue, and utensils are held artfully in place with sticky tack.
