This is the cake I made for my daughter’s Harry Potter themed birthday. She wanted a cake with an albino Eastern Screech Owl and the golden Snitch.
The owl, the Snitch and the old books on the cake are made from fondant and wafer paper. The Feather Quill Pen is completely made of wafer paper. On the cake there are the symbols of the four houses of Hogwarts which are hand modeled and the old wooden planks of the cake board are fondant too.
I tried to capture the spirit and atmosphere of Hogwarts in this cake: the mysterious darkness, the pure and innocent light, the wisdom of the old books, and the golden glow.
