Hogswart Cake

We are so excited to share with you our

Hogswart Cake

This is the cake that almost did not happen.
The morning of the Birthday party I dropped the CAKE.
Yes, the WHOLE CAKE!

What's a Mom to do???

Talk about a mad dash to come up with a cake.
Walmart- did not have any plain cakes.
Albertsons- They need 24 hour notice.
Small Bakery around the corner- Yes but lots of $$$$
You guessed it, the $$$$ won.

What did we use to make the cake? 

Romantic Castle Cake Set

We wrapped each piece with gray or black color fondant.

How do you pronounce fondant???

Spray the cake with edible spray paint.
What- you ask?  Yes, Edible Spray Paint!

Halloween Color Mist™ Food Color Spray
Again from Wilton

It would not be a Hogswart Cake with out ...

Harry, Ron, Hermione and Hedwig

We could not forget

or the Sorting Hat

Each of the characters were hand made by sculpting colored fondant.
Think of playing with edible play-doh.
Fun Fun Fun - Yum Yum Yum

Happy 25th Birthday Sarah

We even had Wands for the Hogswart students
Here is a link on how to make the Wands
Easy Peasy!!!

We are soooo lucky because look at all of the celebrities who showed up at our party.

Luna Lovegood and Rita Skeeter

Hagrid consoling Moaning Myrtle and He who should not be named and Fleur Delacour

Tonks and two of the Weasley Kids
Is that George or Fred??  I can never tell them apart.

Bellatrix with a Golden Snitch and a Numbus 2011.

Look even the water bottles came in costume.
