My friend and I are HUGE Harry Potter fans. We have matching lightening bolt tattoos on our left wrist. Her date of birth was coming around last year and I have always been interested in decorating cakes. I had just recently completed all four courses at Wilton School of decorating. They didn't teach a decent technique for transferring a cartoon picture onto a cake so after much research and talks with my instructor I was prepared to try the "Frozen Butter cream" method on this homemade Harry Potter cake.

After two rough drafts I was confident and I made a 10 inch cake with Harry on his broom reaching out to take a snitch. I decided to not pipe the snitch onto the cake but create it with fondant to make it 3-D. I also added Gryffindor colored handmade flags from fondant every few inches around the top of the cake to make it appear like a stadium.

When you bake a 10x3 cake you always have batter left over for 12 cupcakes. I knew right away I wanted to use purple icing and yellow crystal sprinkles but I decided to use all of my fondant and sculpt pieces from the movie. I had a blast and ended up with an awesome set for the homemade Harry Potter cake!

The cupcakes were as follows:

The Sorting Hat
A book
A snitch
A Wand
A writing quill
A star with 'G' on it (for Gryffindor)
A lightening bolt
and hand piped character cakes of Harry Potter, Hermoine and Ron!

Needless to say my friend LOVED the cake!

My daughter loves Harry Potter. I wanted to practice making a cake that looked like a book. This Harry Potter Birthday Cake Design was a perfect fit. The books were painted with a brush to look like old leather. I used blue and black on the bottom cake to try and make it look old. The wand is made out of gum paste.

The glasses gave me the most grief. I finally decided to make them look folded because they wouldn’t stay glued together in an open position. The snitch is yellow fondant painted with gold luster dust. The scarf is also fondant. I believe the entire thing was eaten in about 15 minutes. It was a lot of fun to make.

Coolest Harry Potter Golden Snitch Cake

Homemade Harry Potter Golden Snitch Cake

Homemade Harry Potter Golden Snitch Cake

As I am no artist, I wanted to make a Harry Potter themed cake. I used a "ball" cake tin, which comprises 2 separate halves, which when put together make a perfect ball.

The icing is white butterfrost icing and I copied the markings on the golden snitch onto the cake. I then sprinkled edible gold lustre powder all over the cake to make it appear shiny.

I drew the wings of the snitch and trimmed them to make them seem feathery and decorated them to make them a little more glamorous. This Harry Potter Golden Snitch Cake was a real hit with my son!

I based this Homemade Harry Potter Birthday Cake Design off the movies and had a great time making it. The bottom is a chocolate cake with Oreo cream cheese filling and the "book" cakes are red velvet with cream cheese filling. All the objects are plain old fondant and then painted. The golden snitch has toothpicks supporting the wings and is covered in gold disco dust. The glasses on top are broken and the spell in the top book is the spell to repair them.

This Harry Potter Gingerbread Hogwarts Cake has lots of fiddly bits but fun to make! Gave it away for my school Christmas Fete which had a Hogwarts theme.

The most tricky bit was cooking the gingerbread into tubes for the towers!
