My niece is a HUGE Harry Potter fan so for her 21st birthday I decided to make her favorite book. The Homemade Harry Potter Birthday Cake Design is made from a chocolate fudge 1/4 sheet. I rolled out fondant colored with yellow coloring and a little brown to give it an aged appearance, measured the sides and cut the fondant to fit. I used a ruler and just pressed down to makes pages once applied.
I took my paint brush and dipped in brown gel coloring and water to antique it a little. I then prepared brown fondant to cover the back side and top of the cake and used gold luster dust to add dimension to it.
All the character pieces are made out of fondant and Harry Potter is rice crispie treat covered n fondant.
