Coolest Harry Potter Character Cakes

I used basic Yellow cake mix for this Harry Potter character cake. I prepared my own icing (recipe below). I searched the Internet for a picture of the Hogwarts Crest. I then used the picture to draw a pattern to cut the cake and for the details on the cake. I colored the icing and used a cake decorating bag for all the details.

Icing Recipe:

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 tsp white color vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp white color almond extract
  • 4 1/2 to 4 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 to 4 tbsp milk

Beat shortening, vanilla, & almond extract on med. speed of electric mixer for 30 seconds. Gradually add half of the powdered sugar, beating well. Add 2 tbsps of the milk. Gradually beat in remaining powdered sugar and enough milk to make of spreading consistency (1 to 2 tbsps). Frost.
