Fakin' It

Make your own homemade Pop-Tarts. I love me some Pop-Tarts, and these look awesome.

On a kitchen table two young women have assembled a variety of items. There are brown bottles, bags of white powder, a pestle and mortar, a collection of funnels, a roll of silver gaffer tape. There is a drill. There is a whisk.

Are they making bombs? Are they making drugs? No. They are doing something far more likely to change the world we live in. They're making their own version of Coca-Cola. Cracking the Coke code.

Make your own Snickers candy bars blindfolded. Well, the blindfold part is just showing off, if you ask me.

Chef Todd Wilbur makes a living out of creating famous recipe clones. Want to know how to make your own Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, or how to recreate an In-N-Out Double-Double Burger? Todd's your guy.

His Top Secret Recipes site shows you how to fake hundreds of famous dishes. Neat!
