Easy Harry Potter Cakes
These magical Harry Potter cakes are simple and easy and are perfect for your next gathering.
If you remember, in the book and in the movie, Hagred brings Harry a cake for his 11th birthday. He says "Got somethin' fer yeh, 'Fraid I might have sat on it at some point, but I imagine it'll taste fine just the same."
In the book it is a chocolate cake with green writing. In the movie it is a cake with pink icing and green writing and the spelling is incorrect as pictured.
Either way, it is an easy decoration to do and sloppy writing is encouraged lol
Harry Potter fans will recongnize Hedwig right away. This owl cake takes no time at all.
You can pipe the feathers as shown, or try using shredded coconut if your family likes it (mine doesn't.) Another option is to simply frost it and then ruff up the frosting by laying a knife down on it and pulling it up to make little peaks.
Taking an item like a Harry Potter Funko Pop and placing it near the cake elevates the effect without any effort at all.
Super simple back and forth piping with a wide tip and you are done. Make the cupcakes, or skip them, the choice is yours. If you skip, add a little something to the top of the cake (see choices below)
Choose your fans favorite house colors to make it extra special.
