“When life gives you lemons, make a realistic lemon cake ball!” Natalie Sideserf of Sideserf Cake Studio specializes in making cakes that don’t look like cakes. In this Lemon Cake Ball ‘Cake Bite’ video, she colors, shapes, and adds texture to modeling chocolate around a cake ball, and then paints on lots of translucent details.

That final cut into the lemon, revealing a chocolate peanut butter flavored lemon cake ball, is pretty surprising if you’re not expecting it.

The 9m30s Lookalike Challenge video below provides narration and more detail for each edible step of the illusion.
