Life of Harry Potter, a photo by DeepDelights on Flickr.
This weekend was a particularly busy one with house guests and parties and of course, plenty of baking! Made a ‘Fraisier’, a strawberries and cream sponge cake, for friend who wanted something unique to take to his ex-boss’ place, a passion fruit mousse cake to take to another friend’s lunch party and something extra special for her little girls!
The last instalment of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows released last week to bring an end to a wonderful movie series. As a tribute to the books I have immensely enjoyed reading over the years, I decided to make cupcakes for the children with this theme in mind.
The highlight of the Deathly Hallows has been the 7 horcruxes:
1. Tom Riddle’s Diary
2. Slytherin’s locket
3. Marvolo Gaunt’s ring
4. Hufflepuff’s cup
5. Ravenclaw’s diadem
7. Harry himself
I made all these as sugarpaste toppers for each cupcake.
To make it a dozen, I also made a few other Harry Potter related toppers like the Golden Snitch, Harry’s broomstick, wand, Gryffindor’s scarf and the sign of the Deathly Hallows.
Needless to say, my friend’s girls were really excited to see them and the 5 kids finished off a dozen cupcakes in no time!
