Playful pastry chefs are presenting surprising sweets that mimic nature's candy, but turn out to be so much more.
This decadent deception at The Inn at Little Washington looks like a peach, but conceals a sweet surprise.

How’s this for a tasty tease? The Dare to Eat a Peach at The Inn at Little Washington ($238 tasting menu, 309 Middle St., Washington, Va., 540.675.3800) initially confuses guests. But when they dig their forks in, they realize it’s forged from mousse and a core of poached peaches. “We love playing with our food,” says gourmand Patrick O’Connell. He’s not the only one.
