Realistic fake desserts

Okay, so I'm cosplaying Tsumugi Kotobuki in a waitress outfit ( http://myfigurecollection.net/item/42037 ), and as you can see, she's got a nice silver platter of sweets and goodies. For the cosplay, I'll only have the tray out for photoshoots, but I was wondering if there was a way to make some realistic-looking food out of non-food materials. If it's not possible or feasible, then I'll probably just get a couple snacks (pocky, bread, other sweets) and put them on the tray, but I just love the look of the tall glass filled to the brim with deliciousness.

Any ideas?

go run around on deviant and look at the fake food. usually its made with clay and foam then painted. in the end its the paint job and the changing of materials that will emmulate the desserts.

You can always buy them. Fake/replica food is a big industry.
