My cousin wanted a Harry Potter themed birthday cake, and my mind got really excited and this happened.
The cake is good ol’ vanilla, sans fondant because Charlie doesn’t like it much. It’s the most “home made-ish” cake I’ve ever made.
The cupcake flavours are inspired by: sherbet lemons; butterbeer; pumpkin pasties; candy floss; and chocolate frogs. (close ups of the cupcakes will be uploaded tomorrow.)
I made Berty Bott’s Every Flavour Beans boxes and filled them with cheap, 6 flavour jelly beans, and bought sugar mice; cherry lollies (bloodsickle pops); red licorice (were going to be made into licorice wands); and red vines (because what CAN’T they do?!); and filled another glass jar with coloured sugar because it looked like something was missing.
The house mascots WERE going to go on the top cake, but I got my measurements wrong and they were too big to fit, hence the photo of them on their own.
Close up photos of all the cupcakes will be uploaded either tonight or tomorrow.
