Firstly I have to say this is the cake I have enjoyed making the most so far!!! It was for a lady who is celebrating her 40th birthday, and she just wanted something that was cute and girly with patterns. I invited her to think of anything she likes in particular or favourite thing, and upon seeing my Gruffalo cake she asked if I could do something to do with Harry Potter!
I made her a Hogwarts Sorting Hat, as this is her most favourite thing from the books/films (she even has it as a tattoo!) and he is sitting on a Gryffindor house scarf. There are Bertie Bott every flavour beans going around the edge of both numbers and also inside the numbers as an extra special nibble treat! I made a wand, that must be casting a spell as there are sparks of ‘magic’ coming out of the end of it. I also made the Golden snitch and found a pair of Harry Potter’s glasses to decorate the board. As an extra little bit of detail I added a lightening shaped ‘scar’ to the edge of the zero. Perfect for the ultimate Harry Potter fan!!!
